US Senate to ask: Saudi Arabia: Friend of Foe in War on Terror? on Nov. 8

The Counterterrorism Blog provides the date given for when the Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding its hearing for investigating the House of Saud's role in hatemongering, which the NY Sun spoke about (and which I posted about) earlier. As they say here:
The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen. Arlen Specter, has officially rescheduled its hearing titled, "Saudi Arabia: Friend or Foe in the War on Terror?" for Tuesday, November 8, to examine the role of Saudis in disseminating hateful anti-American and anti-Israeli propaganda thoughout Islamic schools and mosques in the U.S.. The hearing was originally scheduled to be held on October 25, but it was postponed. I won't post the witness list until the witnesses are officially announced by the Committee. In my post of October 14, I discussed the witnesses scheduled for that hearing and linked to their bios. The propaganda issue has been addressed on this blog often, with a summary post on March 11 linking to the Freedom House report on Saudi-sponsored propaganda and a bipartisan letter to Secretary Rice on Saudi violations of religious freedom and the export of extremist teachings. I'll have more to say about the hearing as it approaches.
Let's hope that they'll convene as scheduled without further delays. This is something very important if we're to prevent hate material from being subliminated into the minds of children anywhere in the world by the Saudi dictatorship.

Update: here's another article from the NY Sun, reprinted on Front Page Magazine, that talks about how Saudi hate propaganda found its way into schools in the US as well.

Avi, not lets hope lets pray. The U.S. politicians are only for themselves and the power they can scrape together. We need to pray for them and push them.

I don't trust the Saudis at all.

You're right, Patty. We've gotta pray for them and push them to take responsibility on the matter!
