I found the begining of this movie to be dull. The way the camera hops around made my eyes tired. Its that new style of picture thats is supposed to look like it was shot with a hand held camera.

I used to live in Saudi ( Riyadh ), and everybody there kind, they always welcoming us, and when I say that I'm American they say that you're so welcome in Riyadh and we hope that you like it and stuff.

I don't think Saudis hate u as much as u hate them,just remember alot of Saudis lived there and they had the best times of there lives, because America was good to them, America is the most loved country in the region untill Bush came to power and ran a muck of ur foriegn policy and made the whole world hate America, u should really pay attention to ur "European friends" and what they think about u, i just wonder if Bush was the presidant of Russia or Germany what America and American would done????

I know Europeans hate us.My point is 70% of all foreign fighters in Iraq are Saudis & we all know 2/3s of the 9-11 hi-jackers were Saudis.There is hate in Saudi Arabia for Americans since before Bush.I am sure they have their reasons for hating us , but almost 80% of our population does not like the course we are on.

there are an alarming number of people who are going to Iraq, the real threat is after the war is over in iraq they will have to come back to saudi, they are going to be wanted people and we can all imagine the death and distruction they will cause, that is what we fear over here, its Afganistan revisiting. the real problem with the image of America in the region have to do with one think only ISRAEL, the whole world think its a facist racist country except in America were there Fart smells like Roses.

Leo, there are more Arabs in Israel as citizens than either Christians or Jews in Saudi Arabia as citizens.

Mike, where does that 70% figure come from? I watched PBS Frontline last night about the drum beat for war with Iran (yet another country which had nothing to do with 9/11), and an Iranian official made the exact same claim. I've seen a lot on the Saudi meddling in Iraq, but haven't seen where this number has popped up. I'd appreciate it if you could point out where it comes from.

I am sorry.The latest estimate I found today says it is at 45% now.Here is a link posted July 7th 2007 with the breakdown.

Thanks. Although as I mentioned, I did hear the exact same number on Frontline the other night. Maybe the Iranians know something we (in the American public) don't.

Also, what's striking even about the 45% estimate is that the indigenous population of Saudi Arabia is only about 16 million. Compare that to around 65 million in each of Iran, Egypt and Turkey. And around 32 million in both Algeria and Sudan. Clearly, something is out of whack about the Saudis.

You are incorrect in your assertions.
You are showing your true hateful self.
I guess something I posted struck a chord, you are so full of hate that you have almost lost the ability to type.
