Inside the Kingdom: My Life in Saudi Arabia by Carmen Bin Ladin
Inside the Kingdom: My Life in Saudi Arabia

varda, September 30, 2011

The book was fascinating and frightening, though not completely new to me. Still,I would like to refer to 2 points. In her sayings about the way men behave in the Middle East, she seemed to ignore the fact that in the Middle East there is one country that is a democracy and where people have a different code of behaviour - Israel.
May be Sept.11 was an alarm bell that opened the eyes of the west to a horrible threat,but it was not an alarm bell for us, Israelis. We encoountered acts of terror a long time before that, when Muslim terrorists attacked in Athens, Munich and other locations. But as long as Israelis died the world did not care so much. Now they are on their way to take over Europe, taking advantage of the European laws that accept them as refugees, from a war that they created themselves.
