From the U.S. Department of State:

“Qatar does not allow individuals with HIV/AIDS to enter the country . . . Qatari authorities have confiscated the passports of U.S. citizens who acquired Qatari citizenship . . .  In several cases, Qatari authorities informed U.S. citizens that their U.S. citizenship had been revoked. However, foreign governments have no authority to revoke the citizenship of a U.S. citizen . . . The Embassy strongly encourages U.S. citizens to avoid large crowds and demonstrations whenever possible . . . Local and third-country-national young men have been known to verbally and physically harass unaccompanied, expatriate women . . . Qatari police have arrested U.S. citizens suspected of or witness to a crime, including traffic accidents involving injuries to pedestrians or the occupants of other cars, traffic arguments, slander, and a variety of lesser offenses . . . Insulting someone in public is considered a punishable offense . . . Proselytizing is illegal in Qatar . . . Homosexual activity is considered to be a criminal offense, and those convicted may be sentenced to lashings, a prison sentence, and/or deportation.”

  1. Our baby monitor is currently picking up someone else’s house. The reception is crystal clear. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for our own house.
  2. When you Google “Tater Tot Casserole Recipe,” the first link that takes you directly to a recipe is that of the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar family web site.
  3. If you desire to purchase a 4,435 square foot apartment in Tashkent, Uzbekistan from the U.S. State Department, you can do so by sending an e-mail to and referring to property ID 5TashkentX26. This handy information is just four clicks away from the recipe page on the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar family web site.
