The disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi could force Washington to change its attitude toward Saudi Arabia, something that the White House has avoided for years, even after September 11, 2001.
For a president who inaugurated his administration by blocking the entry of hundreds of Muslims into the United States, it is paradoxically fundamental to defend one of the most radically conservative countries in the Arab world. However, the history between the United States and Saudi Arabia is long and intricate.
Para un presidente que inauguró su gestión bloqueando la entrada de cientos de musulmanes a Estados Unidos, es paradójicamente fundamental defender a uno de los países más radicalmente conservadores en el mundo árabe. Pero la historia entre Estados Unidos y Arabia Saudita es más larga e intrincada.
As Saudi Arabia welcomes its first woman news anchor, it’s important to remember the U.S. is still lagging when it comes to newsroom diversity.

Durante la mañana del lunes un centro para el tratamiento del cólera en Abs (Yemen) fue bombardeado por la coalición de Arabia Saudita y los Emiratos Árabes que cuenta con el apoyo de Estados Unidos.
Why is the intervention of the United States so important in the civil war of the Arab country?
The news out of Saudi Arabia has been startling. A country famous for its stability to the point of stagnation is watching a 32-year-old crown prince arrest his relatives, freeze their bank accounts and dismiss them from key posts.
Women's rights activists have campaigned for years to have the ban on women driving lifted, among othr reasons because it has led to the arrest of dozens of Saudi females who have dared to get behind the wheel as a form of protest.

Yemen population is suffering what U.N. officials have called the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
Fourteen year old Saudi Arabian has been arrested for a video that went viral almost a year ago. The sordid crime? Publicly dancing to the Los del Río one-hit-wonder, Macarena, on the main road in Jeddah. Though admittedly humorous, the issue of his detainment is much more serious than the gleeful and choreographed wiggles would appear to indicate.
The Venezuelan crisis is not a myth. Just take a look at the numbers of Venezuelans seeking asylum throughout the world to understand that it is easier to abandon everything than to succumb to the Bolivarian Revolution.
Drawing upon two years’ worth of impertinent comments, offensive tweets and harmful policy positions, Donald Trump can aptly be described with a number of words that end in “-ist.”
Protectionist. Nativist. Misogynist. Racist.
The latest revelations about Russia and Donald Trump’s campaign are useful because they might help unravel the mystery that has always been at the center of this story. Why has Trump had such a rosy attitude toward Russia and Vladimir Putin? It is such an unusual position for Trump that it begs for some kind of explanation.
The visit of the American president to the French capital, as a guest of honor at the celebrations commemorating the storming of the Bastille, represents the meeting between two radically opposed governments.
US President Donald Trump spoke over the weekend with the leaders of China, Japan and several Persian Gulf countries, and plans to do the same Monday with the heads of the French and German governments, the White House announced.
While we have been focused on the results of special elections, the ups and downs of the Russia investigation, and President Trump’s latest tweets, under the radar, a broad and consequential shift in American foreign policy appears to be underway. Put simply, the United States is stumbling its way into another decade of war in the greater Middle East. And this next decade of conflict might prove to be even more destabilizing than the last one.
The Trump administration is determined to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) -- which created a single market from Mexico’s southern border to the Yukon -- but the main political appeal of this policy rests on a popular myth: that “fair” trade requires the United States to have a surplus or balanced trade with both Mexico and Canada.
Donald Trump returned from his first overseas trip convinced that he had unified America’s historic Arab allies, dealt a strong blow against terrorism and calmed the waters of an unruly Middle East. Since then we have seen a series of terror attacks in Europe and the Middle East, and an open split within the Arab world. What is going on?
In a series of tweets, Trump said recent trip to Middle East prompted Saudi Arabia and four other countries to break diplomatic relations with Qatar, arguing the small energy -rich emirate is financing Islamic terrorism.
This week’s bombing in Manchester was another gruesome reminder that the threat from radical Islamic terrorism is ongoing. And President Trump’s journey to the Middle East illustrated yet again how the country central to the spread of this terrorism, Saudi Arabia, has managed to evade and deflect any responsibility for it. In fact, Trump has given Saudi Arabia a free pass and a free hand in the region.
Donald Trump’s first trip as President of the United States has begun with a pilgrimage for the most important places for the three religious pillars or the world, between May 20 and 24.
