The entire city is off-limits to us "dirty unbelievers". And then they start complaining if we call them intolerant and terrorists.

Main reason for that is that the city gets swamped by Muslims during their pilgramages to Mecca. Have you ever seen the crowds at the holy sites? They're unbelievable! It does make sense to restrict access for that very reason (not that I agree with the practice but I can see the sense).

2x4 lanes, I love how those middle eastern countries can have wide motorways everywhere while Europeans are stuck with NIMBYS and BANANAs.

Along the US-Mexico border, there are signs warning drivers to watch out for illegal migrants running across the road:

That first pic looks like something like a lookout point, the larger person looks like to watching through binoculars.

Intolerant sure, but how does them excluding non-Muslims make them terrorists. Tell me that and I will take you seriously.

EU-non EU signs on the borders are not that different. it is also discrimination.

EU - non EU lanes are present because of simplicity of passage threw border crossing. but in that case, i doin't understand why should EU citizens be less suspicious for some illegal actions than non EU

It's a simple system to accomodate for traffic I guess. EU citizens don't use visas to enter EU countries, while most non-EU citizens do, and checking out visas takes time..

Overt discrimination, intolerance and a supremacist ideology put together lead to terrorism.

You're absolutely right, I would have expected better from the EU. At least some of us living in central/eastern Europe don't have to put up with that anymore.

while EU had 15 members, there was a plenty of countries which didn't need visas, and we had same situation

Yeah, true, but IDK, at the Slovenian-EU border there was EU + SLO and other non-EU.. I dunno, really, but yeah, I guess in a way it is discrimination..
