Until recently, this topic was taboo in Saudi Arabia, where the regime doesn’t allow any margin for political debate, and commands people to listen, obey, and leave matters of government to their rulers.
До недавнего времени эта тема была предметом табу в Саудовской Аравии, где режим не позволяет никаких политических дебатов и приказывает людям, чтобы они слушали, повиновались и всецело доверяли правителям в вопросах управления государством.
