    I'm 35, male, and American and I'm considering a trip Qatar this summer.. the U.S. Government websites have various warnings about safety of American citizens in Qatar, but my overall impression from skimming the net is that it's probably safe.

    Can anyone address this safety issue - specifically terrorism, street crime, or any other issues?

    I haven't had a chance to visit Qatar yet but I hear that the people in Qatar are friendly, and that the country is the most safe and secure country in Mideast.

    My advise to you is to do some homework to learn about the culture in Qatar... there are plenty of books available in amazon that you can buy so you can learn the simple and basic Arabic words and politeness sort of stuff.

    I'd also suggest bringing in cash and credit cards so you won;t have to rely on travelers checks or wire transfers which take weeks to clear.
