Strange place to find Saudi propaganda

Tonight as I was removing the umpteen pounds of spam from my mailbox, I found one of those free gift offers. It was a fairly small item, and something that I might be interested in depending on how much the shipping and handling for the "free" item is. So I went through their several screens of offers, happily checking no on all of them, and then, at the last screen before the "Choose your gift" section I was presented with this:


Welcome! Take advantage of these special offers.1. Select your offer(s), complete all required fields, then click "Submit".2. Otherwise, click "No Thanks".
