Ha! And so would the woman!
Years ago when we were palsy-walsy with the Iranians, I was doing shore duty in Millington AFB outside of Memphis.
The Navy was training their brightest and tightest to fly.
Hardly anyone liked them and it had nothing to do with any sort of racism or religious intolerance or anything like that.
They all came from wealthy privileged families and were the most arrogant lot youd care to meet. Since they were a good-looking bunch AND because they had lots of money, the local women flocked to them like moths to a flame.
The point being, as Muslims, they treated the local women as they did their own women back in Iran. Muslim men literally rule and at all levels. Local women were raped and humiliated and even beaten on a regular basis.
Because of politics these things were hushed and kept quiet. I have no idea what happened after I was discharged, but I do know these things to be true.
I know we are talking Saudis but at this level it is the same cultural and religious attitude. Remember, after all we are infidels and to be regarded as such.

Frankly I believe the allegations about these men because they were amongst some people that I knew while I briefly lived in Springfield. There was an incident where rayan grabbed me and told me that I should have sex with him. I was shocked and scared but luckily I was able to remove myself from the situation. I was so embarrassed about what happened but I feel that people should know. This took place around 12/2008. Yes he would flee bc another Saudi case involving an engineering student in kentucky around 2009 has fled the country.
