Should an American consider a job in the Middle East?

I applied for a consulting job w/a large company in Qatar. While it's highly unlikely that lil ol' me would be considered... I was wondering. If they offer, would I go? Should I go?

I like to travel.
I'm very open minded about cultures/other religions/languages, etc.
I'm not a staunch USA national that believes my country is without ills/fault.
I've always wanted to go to Qatar, at least to visit.
I'm not at all scared of dying/being killed.

I think you should consider all the advantages and disadvantages but Qatar seems like a pretty safe place. Same with UAE etc... So I say go for it. It should be an adventure.

I've always had a fantasy to have sex with a muslim man.

Whilst I'm far from Muslim... for you I'd pretend! I'd even hit you in the ass with a Koranface with a non secular cottonball if that'd get you going.
