Saudi Arabia, whose ruling family includes some princes who support and fund terrorism around the world, has passed a new anti-terrorism policy that defines atheism itself, along with nearly all dissent from that country’s leadership, as terrorism. The new definition of terrorism includes:
Calls for atheist thought in any form, or calling into question the fundamentals of the Islamic religion on which this country is based;
Anyone who disregards their loyalty to the country’s rulers;
Anyone who aids [terrorist] organisations, groups, currents [of thought], associations, or parties, or demonstrates affiliation with them, or sympathy with them, or promotes them, or holds meetings under their umbrella, either inside or outside the kingdom;Those who seek to shake the social fabric or national cohesion, or anyone who harms the unity or stability of the kingdom by any means;
Attends conferences, seminars, or meetings inside or outside [the kingdom] targeting the security of society, or sowing discord in society;
Incites or make countries, committees, or international organisations antagonistic to the kingdom.
Welcome to totalitarianism. But don’t expect to see much of a reaction to this from the State Department because they won’t want to offend our “allies.”
