Experts Praise King’s Decision

Standard

Normally, after the King gave orders to block access to the anti-Islam YouTube video, it became front page news in all Saudi newspapers. Most of them simply carried the report published by the official state news agency SPA. Okaz, however, decided to do them one better: they went and asked two experts to offer their invaluable insight into the royal orders. Both of them praised the decision lavishly. THIS WAS SHOCKING. I was totally expecting the paper to publish opinions opposing the King‘s decision. You know, in the name of defending free speech and all that. Guess I was wrong. Again.
