Saudis Forewarn Seizure Of Bibles From Tourists

Despite increased efforts at bolstering tourism to the desert kingdom, Saudi Arabia persists in forbidding visitors from bringing such items as Bibles, crucifixes and Stars of David into the country and insists it will take them away from tourists. “A number of items are not allowed to be brought into the kingdom due to religious reasons and local regulations,” Saudi Arabian Airlines confirmed to The Jerusalem Post. These items are included in a list also forbidding narcotics, firearms, and pornography.  An envoy at the Saudi Consulate in New York asked to explain the policy said, “Every country has rules about what can and cannot enter.”
