It Isn’t Much

But it’s certainly a step in the right direction.

Saudi Arabia has just had its own St. Valentine’s Day Massacre — a bloodless one that brings hope of much-needed reform. On February 14, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah carried out a sweeping shake up of his cabinet and government. He replaced several of the government’s top Wahhabi ideologues with others thought to be more religiously tolerant, reform-minded, and with close working ties to the king.

Anything that puts fewer Wahhabi in charge of anything – or which just makes for fewer Wahhabi – is a good thing.
