Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran continue to escalate. The current row erupted earlier this month after Saudi Arabia executed the Shia religious leader Nimr al-Nimr and the Saudi embassy in Tehran 

Just came across an eye-opening 2016 interview w/Jamal Khashoggi. Speaking as a semi-official representative of the kingdom, he defended the Saudi justice system, the practice of beheading criminals and the execution of Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr.

In this week's special Arena, Seyed Hossein Mousavian, the former head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Iranian National Security Council and a close ally of President Hassan Rouhani, debates with Jamal Khashoggi, a former adviser to Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal.
