It looks like they're both drinking coke! or is that banned as well?

If you think that's an attempt at humour by exaggeration, think again. It's not an exaggeration. Coke is actually banned in Saudi Arabia for the sole reason that the Coca-Cola company does business with Israel. There is an official boycott in place, so in Saudi you can only get Pepsi. At least that was the situation when I was there in the 1980s. Maybe someone who's been there more recently can tell us if the ban is still in place.
