The only real place in the Middle East that is "alright" is Dubai, United Arab Emirates and that's probably because of the large U.S. influence.

And by the way, I'm not from the U.S. at all. I think (along with the rest of the world) that the Middle East is what's holding the world back. There are Muslims coexisting in the U.S., Russia, Europe, Asia, and South America getting along peacefully with everyone else. WTF Middle East?
