“Saudis of all sorts recent having to beg princes for favors to secure services that should be a public right”
Karen Elliott House, On Saudi Arabia: Its People, Past, Religion, Fault Lines - and Future

“What unites conservatives and modernizers and young and old, is a hunger not for freedom but for justice; for genuine rule of law, not rule by royal whim. They want a government that is a transparent and accountable, one that provides standards services such as are available in far less wealthy societies: good education, job, affordable housing , and decent health care.”
Karen Elliott House, On Saudi Arabia: Its People, Past, Religion, Fault Lines - and Future

“The Al Saud believe they have an asset more powerful than the ballot box: they have Allah.”
Karen Elliott House, On Saudi Arabia: Its People, Past, Religion, Fault Lines - and Future
