Religious Apartheid

Seems like the Saudis have an "out" when it comes to their hatred of Jews. Odd that the US and British governments continue to favour a regime that displays behaviour like this. If it weren't for all that essential oil that the world depends on do you think things might be any different?

In an interview with Israeli television, a transcript of which was published by Egypt’s Al-Ahram newspaper, Mubarak said circumstances in conservative Saudi Arabia, home to Islam’s holiest sites, prevented the Saudi monarch meeting Olmert.

“Forget about meeting with the king... The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has circumstances that differ from those of any other state. They have holy lands and men of religion,” Mubarak said.

So religious discrimination is acceptable on account of all the Saudi holiness then?
