    Read the book “Paramedic to the Prince” writen by an Amaerican Paramedic thar worked for King Abdullah. A great book that really lets you know what Saudi Arabia is really like. The passed a law in Saudi that you have to get permission to marry a non Saudi, because Saudi’s were going to india and such places and marrying 12year old girls, using them for a year or two, the divorcing and sending them back home.
