"No hookups"

Yes, but you were speaking in the present tense. You should let people stay updated rather than bringing old sources. Right as of now, it’s only Qatar and Turkey that funds Islamist influence in Europe and the World.

You didn’t read my comment right didn’t you? He said there is an OFFICIAL Apple store in King Khalid Airport. Meaning without any distributors or retailers. Why isn’t the pricing of their products reduced in comparison to local Apple retailers?

I was talking about a real location not one in an airport. If that’s an official Apple store why doesn’t it have similar pricing to UAE’s standards?

Will Apple open official stores in Saudi Arabia? Because I'm sick of the pricing even though Saudi Arabia has one of the biggest, if not the biggest Apple fan base in the Middle East

Oh really? Then why does an iPhone 12 Pro Max 512GB cost 5100 AED in UAE but 6500 SAR in Saudi Arabia? I didn't know UAE produces iPhones...

So the Saudi court reversed their ruling on custody of your friend's children?

This is sick! I'm glad that is all something of the past, at least in Saudi Arabia. I'm not sure about some other parts of the Middle East.

Politically speaking, you’re right. But inside the country itself, there was not much religious influence. In fact, my grandma told me wearing hijab was not common. Christmas and New Year was widely celebrated with Santa giving gifts to children. Pictures of women seen wearing short skirts when working as stewardesses for the Saudi airlines…etc. Some pictures

Saudi Arabia was a normal country progressing like any other one until 1979, when this happened. The royal family was scared that the same Islamic revolution of Iran can be carried to the Kingdom, so they decided to give religious leaders more power to appease the conservatives...

Luckily, they don’t need a male guardian for anything they do now, except for marriage which needs a signature of their male guardian, same applies to most Islamic countries in the world.

Wiki did not say it was 6 years. It just said it's no longer required. It was me estimating when they allowed it...

That was back then, around 6 years ago. Now, they have full freedom.

You will go to a specialized family court and they will grant you full independence.

Here is the full report. Women in Saudi Arabia were able to drive planes and become pilots before being allowed to drive cars. The women driving phenomena in Saudi Arabia is not a new thing in their history. Previously, it was allowed back in the 1950s, until the ban was imposed when religious radicals ruled the country. Also, as I said before, the situation for Saudi women in the last few years has completely changed their life, and it happened when the new Crown Prince has been appointed. Over 200 new rulings were given in favor of women in a short time and it’s still progressing forward.

Tourism industry is big in many parts of the Middle East, not only Israel. Jordan, UAE, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia all have invested billions of dollars on tourism projects and advertisements recently.

Which one named after a family? is it Liechtenstein, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, or the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan?

Considering Saudi Arabia’s strong relations with China, this is not accurate. Saudi maintains very strong relations with US, China, and Russia equally. Recently, Saudi has boosted their cooperation with China in many different fields making them a significant ally as important as the US.
