Outrage after Netflix pulls comedy show criticising Saudi Arabia
Netflix defended its decision, stressing that it was in response to a “valid legal request” from the kingdom’s communications and information technology commission, to which it acceded in order to “comply with local law”. “We strongly support artistic freedom worldwide and only removed this episode in Saudi Arabia after we had received a valid legal request – and to comply with local law,” the company told the Financial Times.

It added that the Saudi telecoms regulator cited a cyber-crime law that states that “production, preparation, transmission, or storage of material impinging on public order, religious values, public morals, and privacy, through the information network or computers” is a crime punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine not exceeding SR3m ($800,000).

Foreign Policy: ‘Saudi Arabia declares war on Muslim congresswomen’
The American magazine Foreign Policy reported that since the beginning of the mid-term elections in the United States, conservative media outlets have fiercely targeted Somali-American congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who wears hijab, in response to Democrats’ efforts to lift the ban on religious headwear in the House of Representatives in order to integrate congresswoman Omar.

The magazine added that the attack against the presence of Muslim congresswomen was not only led by the US media, but also included the Saudi media which launched a scathing campaign targeting female Muslim deputies. Saudi academics and intellectuals recently accused Omar and Palestinian-American Rashida Tlaib of belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Foreign Policy quoted an article published on Sunday by the Saudi-owned news website Al-Arabiya, saying that both women were part of an alliance between the Democratic Party and Islamic groups to control the Congress. The article stressed the women’s opposing stance towards President Donald Trump’s sanctions on Iran and his position on isolating Islamic movements. (...)

Saudi Arabia has not ordered $450 billion worth of goods and services across the board.
Over one million jobs are not at stake.
 
...Trump said that all told, Saudi Arabia has $450 billion in orders from the United States. We asked the White House and the U.S. - Saudi Arabian Business Council for any data on this.  We did not hear back.
...Trump said that Saudi Arabia has ordered $450 billion from U.S. companies, including $110 billion in military contracts, representing over a million jobs.
Orders on that scale don’t exist. There is no data behind the $450 billion, and the $110 billion is a blend of smaller deals in progress, old offers that have not come through, and speculative discussions that have yet to move forward.
Trump’s claims about jobs ignores the long runway between signed agreements and actual delivery and payment. He treats spending that could play out over a decade as if it were spent in one year. More importantly, if the $450 billion in orders is a mirage, the 1 million jobs is equally without substance."

Nice trick R_P.  Thanks.   The browser (Opera) reports the site as insecure but at least I can load it.  Not a big fan of Thomas Friedman......

To add to the topic, American journalists, western journalists in general, have this annoying habit of projecting their own wishful thinking on social movements marked by large street demonstrations.   The most egregious example in recent years was  the coverage of the Arab Spring.   

The Arab Spring was for the most part a reactionary movement against cuts to food and fuel subsidies that should have never seen the light of day in the first place.  The protests were not peaceful but violent.

So many people want to finger point the big and the powerful and feel very uncomfortable 'blaming' ordinary folks for bad policy outcomes.

Khashoggi, Erdogan and the Truth
The same scepticism is true many times over when related to CIA Director Gina Haspel, who personally supervised torture in the CIA torture and extraordinary rendition programme. Haspel was sent urgently to Ankara by Donald Trump to attempt to deflect Erdogan from any direct accusation of Mohammed Bin Salman in his speech yesterday. MBS’ embrace of de facto alliance with Israel, in pursuit of his fanatic hatred of Shia Muslims, is the cornerstone of Trump’s Middle East policy.

Haspel’s brief was very simple. She took with her intercept intelligence that purportedly shows massive senior level corruption in the Istanbul Kanal project, and suggested that Erdogan may not find it a good idea if intelligence agencies started to make public all the information they hold.
