Two nation states.

One situated in the occidental hemisphere and the other in the oriental.

One predominantly christian and the other majority Muslim.

But despite the superficial differences, these nations have much more in common than they care to admit or acknowledge.

Both were prolific slave traders in the past and these two entities have used religion as a means of controlling the critical mass of their population.

Women have no control or say over their bodies in these places; That is to say that in the eyes of the law in these states, women are inferior beings.

Capital punishment by lethal injection and beheadings are still enshrined in law in both countries and are carried out on a regular basis.

As regards books, these nation states have sought to ban whatever they feel runs contrary to their parochial world view.

And if you were to put these views to the wider public, they would argue vehemently that one nation is much more civilized than the other.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am referring to the United States of America and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The great friendship between the United States of America and the kingdom of Saudi Arabia is one that was forged out of necessity and one that was borne out of a visceral dislike of the United Kingdom.

And we should never forget oil.

The founding of the Arabian-American oil Company, which is one of the biggest companies in the world is a case in point.

What’s also interesting here is that the bond between these two players has remained unbreakable through the years.

It has survived the great political and social upheavals in the Middle-East: the six day and Yom Kippur wars and the 9/11 attacks, which you will remember was perpetrated by Saudi born individuals.

But what’s of importance here is the serious threat to global peace posed by America and Saudi Arabia.
