The Churches there are they still forbidden to display crosses, on the outside ,be it on the domes, or walls...What kind of religious freedom is that, with those type of restrictions .... Huh Huh

Is Kuwait considered part of Arabia? I know that Saudi Arabia itself bans any church because it has Mecca and Medina, but that doesn't seem to stop Oman, the UAE, et cetera, from allowing the construction of churches...
