Saudi to execute Shia cleric Activists and relatives say Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr supported only peaceful protests and eschewed violence Oil rich eastern KSA, that has a significant Shia population, who are oppressed by the Wahhabi Fundamentalist Theocratic Dictatorship of Saudi Arabia.

When India launches a satellite, they talk about poverty in India. If the same standards were to be upheld, they should mention that the west is allied with the head-chopping Saudis in their fight against the head-chopping ISIS. I suppose demagoguery has to be calibrated on a subjective manner.
