Although the Gulf region had been exposed to the world, especially the West, for more than two centuries, it has remained a “black box” to many. The discovery of the oil in the first half of last century eventually sealed the image of that region. Today it is synonymous with oil, money, western strategic interests,…..etc. what is not known about the Gulf and its people is the fact that the process of education and the exposure to the outside world, together with its deep religious and cultural traditions has transformed the new generations to a new status. Today, there are educated people who have attained the highest degrees in almost all faculties of knowledge.
Native academics, professionals and skilled workers have replaced expatriates in the workforce, and the numerous universities in the Gulf States are staffed by natives. Furthermore, a sense of self-consciousness is fast spreading the region, and many Gulf people have their own aspirations, problems and ability to express themselves in modern terms.
