On the 5th of May, high-level Saudi and Israeli officials met at the so-called “Mandarin Oriental” hotel in SW DC. Code Pink got a team inside before they were escorted back out. Code Pink then set up a noisy “teach-in” protest outside. Everyone in earshot heard about how both the Saudis and Israelis are among the worst human rights violators and sponsors of war in the entire Middle East. The Saudis were also called out for beheading people just like Daesh(ISIS) does and for planning to behead and crucify young Ali Nimr because his uncle was a (recently beheaded) prominant Shiite cleric. Saudi Arabia and Israel are both famous for being states founded on religion, also much like Daesh.
