CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin’s newest book Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the U.S.-Saudi Connection is hot off the press and ready for purchase!
In seven succinct chapters, Kingdom of the Unjust explains the origin of the Saudi state; the internal repression of dissidents, migrants workers, women, non-Sunnis; and the toxic US-Saudi alliance that is based on the oil and weapons sales. It’s critical knowledge for anyone involved in the anti-war movement, as the U.S. ties to the Saudi regime guarantee that we stay in a state of perpetual war.

It’s way past time to call into question the toxic US-Saudi relationship and build a movement that demands an end to US weapons sales to this repressive regime and supports the courageous Saudi dissidents who are trying to transform their nation. With extremism spreading across the globe, a reduced U.S. need for Saudi oil, and a thawing of U.S. relations with Iran, the time is right for such a movement.
