Saudi Arabia’s criminal justice system is far from perfect, and there is some truth in Maher’s claim that the country’s internal affairs would undergo more scrutiny if not for its oil. Nevertheless, Saudi Arabia’s beheading of convicted criminals (mostly drug traffickers) seems to us to be on a different moral plane than ISIS’ beheading of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff. Keep in mind, too, that the people beheaded in Saudi Arabia weren’t American. Surely, that is a more important factor than oil in explaining America’s indifference.
