Im sure they have them, the police check everyone who trys to enter the city. Only way is to sneak in as a maintainance worker, or dig a tunnel underground.

that is not correct, they only check randomly, not everyone. in my many trips to Makkah, i have been asked only a few times to show my ID.

that's true and even on IDs religious affiliation isn't stated. the only way of knowing is through checking one's name or nationality and these aren't solid grounds for verification anyway so you can always pretend ur a convert :P

easy! read a couple of pamphlets about islam and learn the 7-versed opening chapter to the koran (i.e., alfatiha). our enthusiastic a.a.b-fans can do that in the plane.
