Its all about Corrupt House of Saud
28 February 2018 | by asifawesome90See all my reviews

Saudi Arabia is an enigma in the 21st century on one hand its modern infrastructure gives a false impression of development on the other hand its has one of the worst human rights records in the world in fact Saudi Arabia is one of most religiously radicalized societies with adherence to first millennium AD values of the human society, still proudly practiced or otherwise brutally enforced to those who dissent Saudi Arab is not that simple radical country like Afghanistan it has global power base and its tentacles are spread not only over the Muslim countries but US and UK both powerful countries of the world most of time act as cronies of Saudi or vice versa. Saudi has come a long way from desert country to a necessary evil in 21st century. Every developed nation has an ambivalent feeling about the relations with this repressive kingdom. This documentary is a nice attempt to look into the affairs of the country with its special focus on the human rights record and terrorist funding of the country, I will highly recommend this documentary to those who want to understand this extremely important country in global politics.
