Dutch ME correspondent: Saudi Arabia superior to Israel with human rights

From Honest Reporting (link not in the original):
Gross was particularly disturbed by comments made by senior Dutch journalist Connie Mus, correspondent for the Dutch stations RTL 4 and RTL 5, and for Belgium's VTM TV, about how wonderful the Saudi authorities are:
The gentleman from the Netherlands, from Dutch TV - he was praising the Saudis, significantly praising them after his trip there. He even praised women's rights in Saudi Arabia, which I find quite incredible. He praised prison conditions in Saudi Arabia and then he severely criticized Israel, Israeli press freedoms, Israeli prison conditions.

Now I think we all know that Israel's not perfect but the idea that an objective European journalist from the Netherlands can think that Saudi Arabia gives more press freedom, more women's rights, better treatment of prisoners, where prisoners often die of torture in Saudi jails.
