How safe is Saudi Arabia to visit as a tourist?

edited October 2010 in Middle East
Is it safe to visit Saudi Arabia, as a non-muslim? I will be travelling to Riyadh and Jeddah for some meetings and want to see a bit of the country while I am there. Am I safe as a westerner? Is there any risk of violence or crime based on my non-Saudi appearance? I will of course have a guide and a driver so I presume that will help. If there are any other safety tips or general advice people can offer I will be appreciative. Thank you
