I often go and read middle eastern blogs, and there are some great bloggers out there in the land of the sealed. The reason for doing so is rooted in the fact that the “royals” (what we shall refer to the Saudi high command as) have taken it upon themselves to constantly solve our problems from their coffers while seemingly blockading all their own societies problems from the rest of the world.
In other words their underlying mission statement seems to be:
We know best as we are the protectors of the two holy mosques of your religion, but we can’t tell you what goes on back home since we are as fucked up as you are from the inside.
So therefore being the curious soul I am I try to get the real picture of things in the kingdom. Which is how I learned about the latest farce in the arab world or the launch of the Naqa Tube, the Arabic version of youtube which is not considered halal enough for the Saudi authorities to let it run free in the country. So instead of listening to the voices from within their own society, they as usual prefer to silence them and crease them over with religious packaging. Twitter is also banned all over the good kingdom of god.
Still this is not what is really irking me today about the Saudis. What is really pissing me off is the fact that the Saudi’s have decided that since they do not have cultivable land and have to depend upon imports for their natural food supply they will now loot and plunder other countries fertile soil. Mainly us, the great brown slaves willing to sell anything under the sun or lease it at least for a few petro dollars.
In case you are still confused let me make it clearer. Saudi Arabia is in talks with Pakistan to lease an area of farmland nearly twice the size of Hong Kong in a bid to ensure food security, an official from Pakistan’s ministry of agriculture said on Tuesday.
The fact that we have people who are dying of hunger because they cannot afford food at its current exorbitant prices has off course been conveniently forgotten. So we are going to do what is best for us, give away millions of acres of sustainable farm land all over our country which could be used to cultivate crops to feed our own people.
But then who gives a damn about Pakistanis eh? Last time I checked our blood was red and a cheap brand compared to the blue of the Americans and the purple of the royals.
Long live the Kingdom!! Let us feed the Saudi’s until their greedy bellies burst!
