UPDATED VERSION OF MAY 7th NEWSLETTER
We can put a stop to Saudi evil – A Senator now supports us! The hard hitting Post Cards to Congress program, demanding a stop to arming and funding Islamic fighters in Syria or anywhere else, has been a great success. Tens of thousands of citizens have mailed the post cards directly to their congressman and Senators. The Religious Freedom Coalition has now distributed just over one million post cards!
Our government, using our tax dollars plus money borrowed from China that our grandchildren will have to repay, is funding Sunni military actions in the Middle East. In the great sectarian war inside the so-called religion of Islam, our government has taken sides. Ever since the death of Mohammed in 632, the Shiites and Sunnis have been fighting over who should be the rightful heirs to his ungodly militaristic legacy.
The United States and the Europeans have sided with the more barbaric of the two major Islamic groups, the Sunnis. WHY? Because so much oil flows from despotic Sunni controlled nations such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
The post cards we have all sent to our congressmen and Senators have had an impact, and now is the time to let them know how we feel about our nation siding with the tyrants of Saudi Arabia and other Sunni regimes that violate human rights on a day to day basis.
We must tell Congress to stop all military cooperation with the sadistic regime in Saudi Arabia that publicly whips women if they report a rape. It is a regime that tortures any Christian found to be praying to Jesus anywhere in their nation, and allows NO churches.
Lest we forget, 15 of the 19 terrorists on 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia and were college educated, with the money we have given the Saudi despots for their oil … oil that we don’t need any more. The United States is the largest energy producer in the world, and we have no need to bow to the Saudi despots and give them our latest modern arms to suppress their citizens.
In the case of President Barack Obama, his act of literally bowing down to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is an embarrassment to this nation and the world.
The real evil doer in the Middle East is not Syria or Iraq. Even as bad as Iran is, that nation does not compare to the evil that has been brought upon the world by the royal house of Saud. There are actually churches in Iran. The Saudi royals would kill anyone trying to build a church, and they have in the past actually financed al-Qaeda, al-Nusra and the Islamic State.
Finally one Senator has had the guts to come forward and say what must be done with Saudi Arabia and its royal House of Saud. What goes on in Saudi Arabia towards women is a horror compared to the apartheid that used to exist in South Africa. With South Africa, the world took action in the form of boycotts on products and finances. Now a Senator has come forward and said, “boycott Saudi Arabia.” With that wedge in, it is our time to take action.
More importantly, the Senator who called for a boycott of Saudi Arabia is a contender for the Republican nomination for President, and the media must make note of what he has said.
And all this comes at a time when solid reporting indicates Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill were on the take from the corrupt despots of Saudi Arabia while she was Secretary of State!
U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has gone on record very publicly stating that the West must do something to close down the pipeline of money that runs to the Saudi despots to finance Islamic radical teachings and actual terror in the world.
I have met with Sen. Rand Paul on numerous occasions and he is very serious about a boycott of Saudi Arabia, the same kind of boycott that was placed against South Africa for that nation’s failure to allow native Africans the same rights as whites.
This is not about a presidential campaign and I am not asking you to support any candidate for any office. I do believe that when a Senator goes out on a limb to do the right thing for the sake of humanity and to protect persecuted Christians, we should support him.
I strongly support – and urge you to support – Senator Rand Paul’s call for a boycott of Saudi Arabia. That would be a two way boycott. We would block Saudi oil from the West to cut off the flow of money to them and at the same time refuse to sell them the arms they use to suppress their citizens and terrorize the world.
This quote is from a front page article in the Washington Post:
“Sen. Rand Paul called for a boycott of Saudi Arabia, saying Americans should shun the kingdom as it did the apartheid regime in South Africa.
Paul singled out the kingdom for its treatment of women, citing the case of a woman who was gang-raped and later lashed for being in a car with a man who was not her husband.”
These were Senator Paul’s actual words: “This is something that we shouldn’t tolerate. This is something we should be organizing a boycott of. Remember when South Africa was misbehaving? We organized a boycott of South Africa. We should be boycotting Saudi Arabia and not taking money from Saudi Arabia’s government.”
Taking a swipe at the likely Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, he said:
“I don’t think you can be a champion of women’s rights when you take money from a regime that punishes women who are raped!”
For us this is not about politics, it is about the right time to take action. With the liberal elites ignoring the misogyny of the Saudi despots and accepting all kinds of money from them, the issue becomes political. While Rand Paul is hitting Hillary Clinton over the head for political reasons with the millions of dollars her foundation took from the royal family in Saudi Arabia, we can use the media coverage to force some action against the despotic Saudi regime which is actually the center of evil in the world today. How typical it is for a liberal to take money from fascist human rights abusers such as the Saudi royals and then point fingers at Christians! Hillary should be queen of Saudi Arabia.
During an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Paul questioned how Clinton could be a champion for women’s rights while the Clinton foundation accepted at least $10 million from countries that violate the rights of women. The Senator said:
“I think I would expect Hillary Clinton if she believes in women’s rights, she should be calling for a boycott of Saudi Arabia. Instead, she’s accepting tens of millions of dollars. And I think it looks unseemly. And there’s going to be some explaining she’s going to have to come up with.”
Others want to go further than just a boycott. Some want military action.
Rev. Franklin Graham, who heads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is outraged at the slaughter of Ethiopian Christians by Islamic State militants. The son of famed worldwide evangelist Billy Graham is demanding the United States “halt all immigration of Muslims” from any countries “that have active terrorist cells.” That would include Saudi Arabia!
Franklin Graham also wants the government to take “immediate military action” to crush the Islamic State. “We should make sure our government and the current administration recognizes Islam for the danger it is, and that they are doing all they can to work against it,” Graham wrote in a Facebook post
The Obama Administration does not see the Islamic situation the same way as Franklin Graham, Senator Rand Paul, or you and I see it!! That is because President Obama is blinded by his liberal indoctrination that sees all religions as the same and Jesus as the same as Mohammed. When Christians were slaughtered like animals on a beach in Libya by Islamic State murderers, he refused to refer to the victims as Christians, nor would he say the killers were Muslim.
When I was in the Middle East last Christmas, the political leaders I met told me they did not trust the United States even though we had started bombing ISIL, because just two years ago the Obama Administration was arming and training ISIL fighters in Jordan.
The root problem is Saudi Arabia, and many of the congressmen and Senators I have meetings with agree with this in private, but they are too fearful of the Saudi influenced media in the United States to speak out. Even Fox News is partially owned by Saudi royals, and now they are buying up movie studios in Hollywood.
We must encourage congressmen and Senators to speak out for a boycott of Saudi Arabia just as Senator Rand Paul has done.
FOR YEARS…..The United States…YOU and your tax dollars…have armed and propped up the Saudi royal family in spite of the fact that the radical Wahhabi form of Islam is almost completely funded by these same Saudis!
According to an article in the American Spectator, a conservative journal, “Saudi Arabia is a totalitarian theocratic gerontocracy in which a handful of elderly brothers and their sons rule over nearly 30 million people while looting the country’s wealth on behalf of a few thousand princes.”
This is what our military and tax dollars are supporting and that must stop.
Those Saudi royals pull most of our media strings. As a result the Western media looks the other way as Saudi Arabia finances the teaching of Wahhabism, which is a radical version of Sunni Islam. All over the world, including in the United States, more than 90% of the textbooks in Islamic schools and mosques come from Saudi Arabia and over 90% of mosques in the United States receive some type of funding or support from the radical Sunni royals who rule Saudi Arabia with the Qur’an as their Constitution.
Virtually all the Islamic groups of the Sunni variety are, or were at one time financed at least in part by Saudi Arabia; that includes the Taliban, al-Nusra and yes, the Islamic State. The Saudis just cannot learn that feeding the growth of radical Islamic groups unleashes a force that cannot be controlled by governments, including their own. Some of these groups the Saudis have financed in the past are now a threat even to them, which is the case with the Islamic State.
The Saudi Arabian government should be treated like Iran and not allowed to sell their oil until they reform, as South Africa was forced to do.
The ice on Capitol Hill has been broken. Saudi loving Senator John McCain is so outraged that he has called Rand Paul the “worst” GOP candidate ever. That shows the Saudi lovers on Capitol Hill are fearful the call for a boycott of Saudi Arabia will get louder. Help me turn John McCain’s nightmare into a reality by joining the call for a boycott. Below is the suggested text of a post card to send to your congressman and Senators. (Links go to address locators)

William J. Murray, Chairman
Religious Freedom Coalition, 601 Pennsylvania Ave. NW #900, Washington, DC 20004 * (202) 742-8990
The following is some suggested text to copy and send to your Congressman and Senators, or use your own words. Be sure to include your signature, name and address.
As your constituent, I urge your to support sanctions against human rights abuser Saudi Arabia. The United Sates should not treat a human rights abuser such as Saudi Arabia any differently than Iran, North Korea or the former apartheid state of South Africa. Saudi Arabia’s despotic royal family has in the past bank-rolled some of the worst terrorist organizations in the world, including al-Qaeda. Saudi Arabia is a vile racist, misogynistic nation that continues to publicly whip and imprison critics. Civil rights advocates simply disappear.
The despots of Saudi Arabia will not reform until forced to do so. If you believe in American values, if you believe in basic human rights, then demand action against Saudi Arabia’s “royal” family of dictators and despots. If you can’t speak out for basic human rights, then resign and go home.
