Top 10 Sights in the Arab World

The Arabic-speaking world spans two continents and at least twice as many recognized geographical regions. Though not everyone in the Arabic region is Muslim, the annual observance of Ramadan — and its conclusion, Eid al-Fitr, celebrated this year beginning at sundown Aug. 18 — is hard to miss in the area. In honor of the end of a month of fasting for Muslims around the globe, here are 10 spectacular — and in some cases, holy — sights to be seen from Africa to the Middle East and back again.

Be sure to announce you're an American because they love us so much.  Oh, and that bacon in your luggage makes great gifts for some Allah crazed dude lusting for virgins.

Can't imagine why anyone would want to visit any arab, muslim country.  Sounds like too many muslims believe that you must be muslim or they have a desire to kill you.  Haven't yet heard any muslim religious individual speak against the terrorists whose sole purpose in life is to kill non muslim.  Funny as a Christian I don't really care what religion you practice as long as it does not teach its members to do harm to others that do not believe.  I know one reason why Muslims have such a poor attitude on life.  They don't drink.  When they wake up in the morning that's as good as they will feel all day.
