what you need to do before you visit the Middle East is independent research...forget the mainstream media and the government sites who love nothing better to scare the hell out of people! the mid-east is such a hot topic though and there are genuine grievances in most places like Bahrain, Egypt, etc. Two places where there aren't any wars are the subservient state of Saudi Arabia and, of course, Israel!
