"Thank you very much Daniel. I signed up a long time ago but did not contribute as much as I would have liked. It is very clear to me that the Saudi regime itself is a terrorist entity. It has an unsurpassed record of funding, promoting and…"

"Daniel, like it or not, THIS is State Terrorism ... when the state exercises terror over its citizens, for no other reason than its own self-perpetuation.I'm sorry, but I can't see it any other way."

"Hathal, thank you for posting.  I don't recall seeing your name here - a belated welcome to Nexus.   What bad news that is.   It sounds so Orwellian, but with a Saudi twist.  Atheists are about as opposite of terrorist…"

"So ... the Saudi government is legislating intolerance for any form of dissent or religious nonconformity and appears to be interested in making loyalty to their government MANDATORY for all citizens.  Any freethinking Saudi looking at this…"

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Mathematics, Atheist who love Science!, Geek & Nerd Haven, Godless AnthrogeeksJustice for All and Apostate Atheists.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
