Saudi Kingdom and the native Arabians and Jews

Reader comment on item: Uniting to Exclude Saudi Arabian Airlines
in response to reader comment: Two years ago, Saudis specifically banned "Jewish people" from their airlines and their country

Just to note out something here. Countries like Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, and Qatar at least..accept Jews and more than that, Israelis in.

Some Jewish people have historic rights to enter these countries except Qatar in my knowledge. Saudi Arabian originated Jewish people have the same rights too. But what do you say to a Kingdom that treats a Moroccan or Tunisian worker as a slave (although that worker holds a documented line of descent straight to Bani Hashim holders of the keys of Kaaba).

One anonymous person `s recommandation for Muslims was that they should have a courageous Mufti (religious authority) that stands up and say: you poor Muslims who fall in depts to do the pelgrimage. Know that the Pelgrimage is now forbidden untill all the people are equal in Saudi Arabia, and all the religions are equal. If you do pelgrimage now, you just waste money to enrich the royal families.

This added to the lining together against their discriminatory airline may change the situation in the Bush friends`country. Let us just dream about that if we know it is impossible.
