    i noticed that have not said that you have any Jewish friends. Maybe you forgot your Jewish friends in the post or just believe they are lower than you.

    I'm a Saudi; I was born there and I lived there for the first 13 years of my life. I can guarantee that the vast majority of people actually wouldn't even think of harming you because you are an atheist. Some people would dislike the the fact that you do not believe in a God and might try to convince you to change your mind. Now, I'm not saying no one there hates the west; at the end of the day it's Saudi Arabia and it has extremists but those people are not the majority.

    Have you not heard of the King Abdullah scholarship programme? Thousands of Saudi's, including me, are sent to study abroad. I came to the UK without holding any hate towards the west and so did many others!

    I have atheist, christian, hindu and muslim friends and I don't wish to harm someone because of the difference in/ lack of belief and I'm quite sure most Saudi's would have the same opinion.

    Or maybe there aren't many Jews in my school... Don't try to make it sound like I hate Jews when you don't know a thing about me.

    funny, it's as if those great Muslim philosophers, mathematicians and scientists never existed...
    They all died out after literal interpretations of Islam became the norm. It was a brief period of progress (that only ever happened because Muslims in Bagdad at the time would be considered extremely liberal in today's world) that ended over 1000 years ago due to the rise of modern mainstream Islam. :mmm:

    I would love to meet more Jewish people but I'm not really religious enough to go to prayer meetings :ashamed2:. I will consider it though.
