in response to reader comment: reply to the un-educated people out there

You say as an American, you know this Saudi. You then wax lyrical on the subject of Islam, and how fair and humane it is. Presumably you have never even heard of a white woman beaten in the street for holding hands with her husband. as I have. An American also by the way.

Presumably you have never had a Saudi national 'importune' your wife, as I have, so pure are they. I can only presume you have never been through a Saudi Arabian style Ramadan ( I have been through many) The list is almost endless, including the lot of Filipina maids, but then you know all about it, don't you? There are good instances, of course there are. There are also many bad instances. As a second class National (SCN) as was I, a lot of it is 'sanitised' as far as you were concerned. As Third Country Nationals. the Filipino/a lot is totally different. Apartheid, pure and simple.
