Based on the extremely low standards I have for CBC reporting on anything classical liberal or concerning an Islamic issue, this clip is amazingly good. Kind of like if your dog fills the kiddie pool.. Not the greatest engineer in the world or anything, but one hell of a surprise from a dog.
I would suggest there are serious omissions however.
To understand Saudi Arabia you have to understand the geopolitics of the polity. That they chose to be rich, not strong, and they use their wealth as a weapon of geopolitical influence and to great effect. This is the situational norm of the Kingdom’s modus.
The other thing is that there is a high probability that Canadians are working in the KSA providing critical technical support for many central aspects of their lives. Water plants perhaps and more. The Kingdom has whole compounds of kufars which are special non-sharia, no go zones for the locals, full of experts who are there to actually help.
A fascinating inversion in fact of a muslim no-go zone in the West.
Perhaps we could pull out all of our experts?
Seems like a fitting thing to do should we continue to imagine we have earned the right to criticize their foreign policy while aiding and abetting sharia practices here in Canada.
