The ME is the only place I’ve seen grape juice for sale by the case, who’s going to drink 12 liters of grape juice?? The shop by me in Riyadh sold it in a bundle with sugar. The only thing they didn’t do was hand you a piece of paper with the recipe for toilet wine.
For instance, the amount of Saudi households that own “maids” from South Asia (which are for all intents and purposes treated as slaves) is abhorrent. Same with honor killings – at some point, you need to take personal responsibility for your actions and grow beyond the culture around you, otherwise you cease to be a good person.
