from Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

"The Interior Ministry of the oil-rich kingdom called on expatriates to 'show consideration for feelings of Muslims' and 'preserve the sacred Islamic rituals.' Otherwise, a ministry statement said, Saudi authorities will cancel violators' work contracts and expel them.

"Saudi Arabia's population of 27 million includes some 8 million expatriates, including Asians, Arabs, and Westerners ..."

... so almost 1/3 of the pop that has to work during the day so the Saudis can play now have to hide when they need to eat and drink?

It would be nice if muslims in the West would show the respect they demand for themselves, for our way of life. But of course, islam is a one way street.

I discuss plenty of issues. You just can't handle it. That's your own special little problem.

You go deal with it.

I'm quite pleased not to have your respect izzykins. If someone as bitter and hateful as you respected me, I would know that I was doing something very wrong.

Now about that lie you told about ignoring me...I knew you wouldn't be able to manage it! I wouldn't have bet you'd only last 5 minutes though!

I would have given you 10 minutes...

In Islamic teaching, who should show respect first?
