When I think of Saudi Arabia I think of children from other countries being forced to be jockeys in Camel racing. And a lot of other stuff too and a lot of other negative stuff also, but that's the first negative thought.
Dear Stranger, thank you for asking your question, I would be honored to respond in a polite and civil manner. I knew quite a few of your countrymen in my college days and it is not exaggerating to say they were quite wealthy. In my opinion, the biggest difference between Arab men and American men is the way they respond/treat women. American women are used to wearing whatever they want, saying what they want, doing what they want, having a right to their own children, going to college, competing for any job they are qualified for. My understanding of how women are treated in Arabia is that they are closer to possessions than even servants or slaves. It is my belief that your country will never be able to develop its full potential until women are more fully included in government, education, and society in general. We contribute tremendously to our country, and are an asset. I know that women are treated in your country that way because of religious beliefs. (continued below)
