Reuters Report Reveals Anti-Jewish Attitudes in Saudi Arabia

A brief Sunday Reuters article noted:

A court in Saudi Arabia sentenced a teacher to 40 months in jail and 750 lashes for "mocking religion" after he discussed the Bible and praised Jews, a Saudi newspaper said on Sunday.

The article also pointed out the teacher was charged, among other things, with "saying the Jews were right."
