The Middle East continues to be a politically volatile region, with a relatively small number of American expatriates. The recent escalation of conflicts at risk many expatriates from the U.S., Britain, and Canada, and shows just how easily the fragile peace in the Middle East is threatened. On the other hand, oil-rich countries on the Persian Gulf continue to attract a sizeable expatriate community from North America and Europe. Among the most popular destinations are Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates.
