There are so many trouble spots in the world, it is comforting to know — or at least to believe — that Saudi Arabia isn't one of them.
In an apparent effort to ease strained relations, President Obama will visit Saudi Arabia next month, the White House said Monday.
Saudi Arabia put into effect a sweeping new counterterrorism law Sunday that human rights activists say allows the kingdom to prosecute as a terrorist anyone who demands reform, exposes corruption or otherwise engages in dissent.

BEIRUT (AP) — DNA tests confirmed that a man in government custody is the alleged leader of an al-Qaida-linked group that has conducted attacks across the Middle East before shifting its focus to Syria's civil war, Lebanese authorities said Friday.
Syria's war is spilling into its neighborhood almost three years after it started, but nowhere is it doing more damage than in Lebanon, where bombings and assassinations have become routine and nearly 1 million refugees from the conflict are pushing the country to its breaking point.
President Obama is losing respect in Saudi Arabia and risks U.S. influence in the entire Middle East, where Russia is posed to pounce, the head of an independent Saudi-based think tank warned Thursday.
A report based on information from NATO says Saudi Arabia has been paying Pakistan to build nuclear weapons and is now ready to take delivery.
Saudi activists said more than 60 women claimed to have answered their call on Saturday to get behind the wheel in a rare show of defiance against a ban on female driving in the ultraconservative kingdom.
Saudi Arabia's surprising decision to support Egypt's military leaders in their bloody crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood has split the Arab world in two.
A Saudi Arabian activist said his government provided Egypt's military with $1 billion to stage a coup against former president Mohammed Morsi and install interim leadership.
Saudi Arabia's foreign minister offered condolences to President Obama Wednesday for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.
The underappreciated power of prayer is a prime motivating force behind a new Saudi-inspired interfaith center in Austria that seeks to become the place for world religious leaders to meet, solve problems and melt the "mountain of fears" that exists between religious people, says the Saudi official who is championing the ambitious project.
A Cairo court on Saturday ordered the government to block access to the YouTube website for 30 days for carrying an anti-Islam film that caused deadly riots across the world, but the ruling can be appealed and based on precedent may not be enforced.
Jordan's King Abdullah II is touting Wednesday's parliamentary elections as the centerpiece of political reforms aimed at addressing the simmering discontent in his realm.
As the fighting continues, Mr. Abdullah said he views Jordan as "an oasis of stability" in a region often fraught with violence.
That's when King Abdullah told Dennis Ross, a U.S. special envoy, that if Iran developed the weapons, "we will get nuclear weapons," too, Ynet News reported.
