I would think that the guys you would be speaking to would be a pretty progressive bunch. And the Saudi money well is going to dry up eventually, would it be the worst thing in the world if some of that crazy excess went towards helping people?

That being said I totally understand your reservations. They lash bloggers and decapitate apostates and 'witches.'
