The National Emblem of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a palm tree and two Arabian swords intersecting each other.  The palm tree is a significant symbol of this desert Kingdom. Every part of the palm tree, from bark to the fruit, is utilized by the people of Saudi Arabia. It is found in abundance in different varieties throughout the Kingdom.
The two Arabian swords intersecting each other symbolizes justice and strength and represent the struggle it took to join the desert tribes into the unified Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The US Federation for Middle East Peace is a 501 (c)3 Non Governmental Organization with special consultative status to the UN ECOSOC (Economic Social Council) and accredited by the UN Dept. of Public Information. Its core programs vary from peace building efforts, youth sports and children rights, to women empowerment and interfaith initiatives. And for her tireless endeavors in these fronts, Mrs. Sally Kader, President of USFMEP, received a prestigious recognition during the Second UN MDGs (Millenium Development Goals) Award Ceremony, on Sept. 19, 2010, at the Grand Ballroom Waldorf Astoria Hotel in NYC. She dedicated the evening in honor of her dear son, Sam, whom at age 30 lost a three-week battle to hospital acquired deadly infectious bacteria called MRSA (Super bug) after suffering from back pain.
