Saudi Arabia – Jews Welcome, Israelis Not So Much

Saudi Arabia says open to Jewish workers

The newspaper Al-Watan said that the Saudi labor ministry website that deals with foreign workers permits them to have various religions including: Zoroastrianism, Communism, Judaism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, and no religion.

The article said “the labor authorities in the kingdom have permitted the import of people who practice Judaism for working on its soil” and that it is “a move that emphasizes openness to all monotheistic religions and to people from other cultures,” reported MEMRI.

The labor ministry source said that people of any religion can enter and work in the country as the ministry work application focuses on the worker’s nationality.

“We bar entry [into Saudi Arabia] only to those with Israeli citizenship.
