Saudi Arabians are “too weak, too undisciplined, too untrained, too feeble” to protect their country, said Sarah Leah Whitson, the former Managing Director for Research and Policy at the US-based Quincy Institute, in a now-deleted tweet on Sunday.

Good that you deleted your tweet @sarahleah1, but the ugly racism you revealed is cause for alarm. An apology to your followers, especially Saudis, should be followed with serious introspection. We all saw how harmful this prejudice was to @HRW’s work. Not too late to reverse it. https://t.co/ksPGCbiPB1 pic.twitter.com/WgK9ulBXZR— Mohammed Khalid Alyahya (@7yhy) November 9, 2020
As a Saudi citizen , I’ll never forget, I’ll never forgive till she apologizes to all Saudis.— Mohammed Alsulami| محمد السلمي (@mohalsulami) November 9, 2020
Who says Yakhwan? The link is very clear ...
You’re right. It was wrongly worded. I took your point and deleted it. I’m sorry! Will try to revise the point.— Sarah Leah Whitson (@sarahleah1) November 9, 2020
Biden pet story misinterpreted
Saudi owned Al Arabiya TV and Al-Sharq Al-Awasat newspaper, have hit a new low for their lack of professionalism.— Reem Al-Harmi ريم الحرمي (@Reem_AlHarmi) November 8, 2020
They ran a story on Joe #Biden under the headline, “The dogs are back to the White House”, in an obvious insult to the new president-elect. https://t.co/VyQOB6R00r
