Request for assistance
ATTN : Travellers in the Arab Penisula, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi, UAE,
Hopefully, you should all be making arrangements to leave the area. While Islamic leaders are condeming the violence, I know as a traveller how vunerable you will be to attacks from fundamentalists and extremists.
I travelled overland though Turkey, Syria, Jordan and Eygpt last year and met many Muslims who were fantasic people, many of whom I am still in contact with.
The reality however, is that extremists interpret the word of the Prophet to fit their own political / ideological / commercial agendas.
Please assist by posting your first hand reports to this forum.
You are wellcome to contact me anytime if I can be of any assitance with regards to your personal safty, repatraition etc..
May the force be with you.
