Karen House exposes a world of extreme wealth on one side and oppression, poverty, lack of decent homes, health care, sanitation, education on the other side of the society. While dictators that have actually elevated the living standards of their people are attacked and destroyed, the Saud family continues their crimes without remorse.
"For nearly 80 years, a succession of Al Saud princes have traversed the balance beam, skillfully maintaining control of a deeply divided, distrustful, and increasingly dispirited populace, by cunningly exploiting those divisions, dispensing dollops of oil money, and above all, bending religion to serve Al Saud political needs. This ruling family never promised democracy—and still doesn’t. Nor does it bother with sham elections to present the appearance of legitimacy, as do so many other Arab regimes. The Al Saud believe they have an asset more powerful than the ballot box: they have Allah."
