100 days ago today, the Saudi regime ordered the assassination of a journalist named Jamal Khashoggi.
This brought the world’s attention to #SaudiArabia, a radical Wahhabi theocracy, where the oppression of women and the persecution of Christians, Hindus, atheists, and other religious minorities, as well as the LGBT community is the norm.
Since 2015, the United States has supported Saudi Arabia’s genocidal war in #Yemen that has killed tens of thousands of civilians, caused millions of Yemeni people to suffer, starve, and get sick, and created the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.
They spend billions of dollars spreading the extreme Wahhabi Salafist ideology that fuels terrorist groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda around the world. Contrary to what @POTUS believes, Saudi Arabia is not our friend.
Here we are 100 days later and this Congress still refuses to take action to stop U.S. support for Saudi Arabia and to stop arms sales to Saudi Arabia.
Congress must end its support for Saudi Arabia’s genocidal war in Yemen, exercise our constitutional authority over matters of war& stop putting profits of the military-industrial complex before the lives of the American people & people around the world bit.ly/2RhWkND
