UK Government Defends ‘Showing Respect’ To Death of Saudi Arabia’s Dictator King Abdulaziz

21st Century Wire says…

If you needed any more evidence that the British government was completely out-of-touch with reality, this has got to be it. You can call it the ‘political ‘theory of moral relativity’.

We suggested that the death of King Abdulaziz would have been the ideal time for change in Saudi Arabia; a country that is in dire need of an ‘Arab Spring‘. Unfortunately, change has been the furthest thing from the agenda for the new Saudi King Salman, where just like the savage ISIS, the kingdom has already seen numerous people beheaded under his new rule.

Cameron was grilled over Britain’s tribute to the late Saudi King by young people at an event called Stand Up Be Counted: Ask The Leaders, held in Facebook’s London offices.

We don’t agree with lots of things that the Saudis do. We don’t agree with the way they treat people, for instance criminals. We make clear those differences. But when the king died, as a mark of respect, we thought it was right to show that respect,” said Cameron.

Franchesca Hashemi pressed the prime minister further, asking: “But isn’t it disrespectful to the people who the Saudi king has sentenced to 1,000 lashes?
