The lousy standards of Human Rights Watch: how they cover Cuba versus how they cover Saudi Arabia

A cuban celebrated the death of Castro and was arrested (I am sure that an American who celebrated the death of JFK would have been arrested as well), and Human Rights Watch issues a special report about the case.  What would happen to a Saudi who celebrates the death of a King? He would be beheaded within 24 hours.  Just yesterday, a Syrian in Saudi Arabia was arrested simply for posting "Congratulations, Aleppo" on Facebook, do you think HRW will issue a special report on that?  I am so glad that in the last few years Arabs all over the world (among others) got to see for themselves how biased and unprofessional this lousy organization is.
