← Admitting you're an atheist while travelling in the Middle East

I am a former Muslim. I guess I "believed" because I was brought up in that environment. Thankfully I realised that it is a bunch of none sense. Regarding your question, I would be very careful around them as I myself have gotten into a few problems with friends in the past. Friendly or not, I don't think it would be a good idea to openly profess your atheism, especially in a place like Yemen. (I have been there before) I have to hide my true colours for fear of something moronic occurring. My main point is just to be extremely cautious around Muslims because they do not readily accept other peoples beliefs.
