I got a real education in Islam one afternoon when I was sitting in the business class lounge at Bahrain airport waiting for a connecting flight back home.
One of the perks of business travel for big companies was the right to use such lounges which offered such perks as complimentary snacks and cold drinks. Most of us were reasonable-- a bag or two of snacks, a can of juice, maybe a bottle of beer. But a group of Saudis who came in downed Heineken after Heineken, worse than I'd seen at any frathouse drinking party. When the Heineken was gone, they worked down to the next best label. They were worse than the Indians I'd seen on the rez guzzling someone's cologne.
And I had thought alcohol was strictly verboten by Islam. I guess such prohibition only applies when you are in the home country.
Q: “What’s a Saudi version of a picnic?”
A: “A ham sandwich, a six-pack of beer and a ticket to Bahrain”
If you only take one, he'll drink all your beer.
