Your 2 questions seem rather naive.

If you are asking questions like this my advice is to avoid the muslim world. Sorry to be so blunt.

Hear, hear.

Yes, if you have Israeli stamps in your passport, get a new one. If we go to Israel from the arab World, we get stapled in visas which are removed on exit.

Er, have you read the news over the last umpteen years? What do YOU think the policy is on hiring Jewish people for the Arab World?

This is a comment, not a political opinion.

TESOL Islamia has a thread on this topic. The article cited is from 2001 but it's still interesting, as are the reactions to it.

The "traditional" status offered to Jews in this region ended some time ago - around about the tıme of the establishment of Israel.

In the UAE you are talking about an environment where Ezra Pound was removed from the EngLit syllabus at university because "Ezra is a Jewish name".
