    Arab News: Royal court officials now instruct visitors who wish to greet the king and other elderly princes that the greeting should be a handshake rather than a kiss. Nonetheless, despite the king’s order, some citizens still insist on kissing the shoulder or hand of the king, the crown prince and other princes.


    Miss Manners: "One does not bow or curtsy to a foreign monarch because the gesture symbolizes recognition of her power over her subjects."

    This guy bows down to the king of Saudi Arabia but his wife could not do the customary curtsy for the Queen of England? I don't get these people. Why are they so quick to slap England in the face, yet grovel to the Middle East?

    I'll ask here as well,,,Don't they have ANYONE in their entorage (sp?) to teach them customs and etiquitte,,,,IIRC a head bow is proper etiquitte in greeting someone from the Orient if you are on EQUAL position, i.e. country leader,,,,I would think a waist bow would be to show more respect and not being on equal status,,,,a deep bow at the waist is subservient or showing inferiority,,,,correct me if I am wrong....

    Would a country leader visiting or meeting the POTUS bow at the waist,,,,even if he was from the Orient???? say the Emperor of Japan???

    Does a greeting in Middle Eastern countries include a bow????

    Obama, was just showing respect to the towel heads for all the money they channeled to his election campaign. I would probably do the same to avoid shaking hands with them. I was told they don't use toilet paper over there.
