    Why are they so well off. I know it's oil. But most of them are so rich, Why?

    How do you get as rich as them? Invest in oil?

    Example,
    Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud
    Mohammad Al Amoudi

    you sort of answered your own question,

    also comes from the fact that over there...you either sink or swim...those who swim usually come to the west in which it is much much much easier to become succesful than over there and as a result they flourish as here, with no money, there is welfare, over there....you starve

    So...here where most can live without a business/big job, arabs are constantly pushing themselves as they are still "haunted" by home and will always think that if they aren't succesful they will starve..when they won't in reality...

    you think why we have a war on our hands with Iraq at the moment, what is it all for? Oil? weapons of mass destruction? each day the war goes on, billions upon billions are being spent by the governments in control, now the arabs as you so elegantly put it are rich because they have all the OIL!!!! but when the war is done and everything is settled who will end up being better off??? in Saudi Arabia there is so much oil and this is a very precious energy source for the western world, OIL is a multi-billion dollar business!!!

    I am Arab and I am not rich! I come from a middle-class family (Dad gets around 50k per annum)

    It is oil. As you said.

    I'm Iraqi and I can see how much oil is here. It is everywhere.

    (I even think there is some beneath my house! hahahaha).

    Yes, you will be rich in such country.

    Go to Dubi and be rich!
