    Melanie, what does Saudi Arabia have to do with Palestinians? That's like comparing apples with oranges eh :) First off, I myself am a Catholic Palestinian, and I know many Palestinian Muslims themselves who were not able to live in Saudi Arabia due to their strict cultural/religious mandates. Saudi's follow the Wahabi madhab of Islam. Palestinians are more likely to follow more moderate or liberal forms of Islam i.e. the Hanafi or Shaf'i madhab. The question is not why don't these Arab countries allow Jews to go, because the reality is more than anything, the jews left these arab countries out of their zeal to return to "ZION" after 1948. Palestinians are their own nationality. They are not Saudis for sure. And I as a Catholic, residing in Ramallah for ages, have never ever encountered discrimination from Palestinian Muslims because of my faith. However, ironically, it is those who were persecuted by Nazis that discriminate against my faith. By tearing down churches in the West Bank, by suffocating Bethlehem, etc. Let's not be hypocritical now Melanie. Peace :)
