    have you ever lived in saudi arabia?? if you havnt please keep quiet because your are wrong without any evidence apart from the media
    No, but you've never lived in the real Saudi Arabia either - you have no more experience of it than I do. I don't need to live there to know what an oppressive country it is, there are many first-hand non-biased accounts of what life for the non-privileged elite is like on TV/Radio, in newspapers and in books.

    Media propaganda? Please. Saudi authorities are proud and open about how oppressively "halal" their country is

    You're wrong. It is just as conservative and oppressive as people make out.
    Speaking as someone who has lived both in "the real Saudi" and among expats, it's something in between. It's quite conservative countries but the religious police have lost a lot of their power and clothing is less conservative than it was a decade ago (which might be why mkap has a different perspective).Still, life is much easier if you're:
    a) A Westerner
    b) From the Saudi Sunni majority.

    Saudis from the Shia minority and blue-collar workers from non-Western countries are bound to find it very oppressive.

    mkap A cousin of mine went to live in Saudi Arabia for the last 2 years, and she's quite an honest unbiased person. She said that it is modern and nice if you have a lot of money and you're male. However she said that all the men act like they've never seen females before, they perv on females consistently (this being in the 'modern' Jeddah) and you have to keep yourself covered at all times. Would you say that's the case for you?
    And you shouldn't really tell people to "keep quiet" for simply stating facts.
