i found this purely by chance, and it sounds interesting. india was clearly (one of the) richest parts of the world up until the british plunderers came in. this article gives prominence the gulf area because -- i presume -- it was written for the benefit of arabs.

According to Congressman Sali, the only way the U.S. can continue to survive is under that protective hand of God.

He states when a Hindu prayer is offered, "that's a different god" and that it "creates problems for the longevity of this country."
