KSA ..

Area : 2,240,000 sq km . Population : 23,370,000 (official estimate 2002). Population Density : 10.4 per sq km.
Capital : Riyadh (royal). Population: 4,761,000 (UN estimate 2002; including suburbs). Jeddah (administrative). Population: 3,192,000 (UN estimate 2001; including suburbs).

Government : Absolute monarchy since 1932.

Head of State and Government: King Fahd Ibn Abd al-Aziz Al-Sa'ud since 1982. Language : Arabic. English is spoken in business circles. Religion : The majority of Saudi Arabians follow Islam; around 85% are Sunni Muslim, but Shia Muslims predominate in the Eastern Province. Time : GMT + 3.
Electricity : 127/220 volts AC, 60Hz.



Introduction : In 1902, ABD AL-AZIZ bin Abd al-Rahman Al Saud captured Riyadh and set out on a 30-year campaign to unify the Arabian Peninsula. Today, the monarchy is ruled by a son of ABD AL-AZIZ, and the country's Basic Law stipulates that the throne shall remain in the hands of the aging sons and grandsons of the kingdom's founder. Following Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990, Saudi Arabia accepted the Kuwaiti royal family and 400,000 refugees while allowing Western and Arab troops to deploy on its soil for the liberation of Kuwait the following year. The first major terrorist attacks in Saudi Arabia in several years, which occurred in May and November 2003, prompted renewed efforts on the part of the Saudi government to counter domestic terrorism and extremism, which also coincided with a slight upsurge in media freedom and announcement of government plans to phase in partial political representation. A burgeoning population, aquifer depletion, and an economy largely dependent on petroleum output and prices are all ongoing governmental concerns. Arabia has intrigued travellers for centuries. Its vast swathes of desert were the swaddling clothes of infant Islam and the birthplace of the Arab race and of Arabic, a language considered holy by Muslims. It's also home to two of Islam's holiest cities - Mecca and Medina - and to a host of modern, thriving, oil-rich metropolises.
Today's Saudi Arabia has held on to its mystique by being incredibly difficult to visit - there's no such thing as a tourist visa in this country. But if you can find someone to sponsor you or decide to take an expensive 'approved' tour, it's worth coming here for the desert and mountain scenery, and some of the Middle East's best archaeological sites.



Saud! FlaG :
The flag of Saudia Arabia is green, a traditional color in Islamic flags, with the Shahada or Muslim creed in large white Arabic script (translated as "There is no god but God; Muhammad is the Messenger of God") above a white horizontal saber (the tip points to the hoist side); design dates to the early twentieth century and is closely associated with the Al Saud family which established the kingdom in 1932.

Exchange rates:
Saudi riyals per US dollar - 3.745 (2003), 3.745 (2002), 3.745 (2001), 3.745 (2000), 3.745 (1999)
GDP: US$186 billion
GDP per head: US$9000 , Annual growth: -9%
Inflation: 0% , Major industries: Oil, steel, cement, wheatMajor trading partners: Japan, United States, EU, India.

Why is everyone giving this girl a hard time? Let her say what she wants it is her blog and her words... whether people read or not is not your concern.. you would be surprised at how many people actually do read blogs now... in the United States .. many bloggers had their blogs made into books... so quit being negative and leave her alone... uffff... 7asby allah 3alaikom

ليش هنالك أي علاقة للغيرة في كلامي ، و إنما هي وجهة نظر أبديها ، فأنا لم أجد أي موقع لشخص لايتكلم اللغة العربية وتراه يكتب باللغة العربية من أجل من يتكلمونها ...
و كما قلت أنت هذه هي مدونتك ، و لا يمكن لأحد أن يجبرك على كتابة مالاتريدين ، لكن دعوتي معروفة لدى الجميع ....
لا علاقة لي أو لغيري بما تكتبين ، لكني أستغرب استخدام اللغة الانكليزية دون العربية ..
و أود لو أن أحدكم يدلني على مدونة لشخص أجنبي تكتب باللغة العربية من أجل العرب ..
و كما قلت من قبل :
إن المحبَ للمحبِ مطيع ...

منذو صغري وانا اسمع عن مطفي الضو
يقولون لي انت جاينا مطفي الضو والحين فهمتها واتمنى غيري يفهمها
البلوق موجه للعالم اللي ما تتكلم عربي واتمنى الكل يفهم ليه موجه لهم
المهم اختي العزيزه
~ Saud! G!rl ~
بأمكانك تقفيل التعليقات عندك بالبلوق وابحري في عالمك وما يهزك ريح
والحساد كثار المهم انك ترفعي راس السعودية بالبلوق وغيره عجبني فيكي طموحك والفكره
الى الامام لا تنظرى ورائك
والقافله تسير وال... تنبح
.....................
هذه رساله خاصه للي يقول ان البلوق فيه عيوب
البلوق ماله فتره بسيطه سويتو كذى
وهي بس حطت موضوع واحد تعرف فيه بالسعوديه سويتو كذى
الله ياخذكم
عندكم مواقع كبيره ومنتديات عريقه مليانه عيوب محد سأل عنكم
