He really wants to see the Mecca Clock Tower and the Jeddah Tower. How do I break the bad news to him?

Mecca Clock Tower? Jeddah Tower? How does your son know any of this? Are these even real things or did you just make them up? I don't know and I don't care to Google.

C.S. Lewis once said there were two separate and equally dangerous errors one could fall prey to when it came to devils and demons: one is not believing in them, and the other one is believing in them and having an unhealthy interest in the subject...

It's a good idea to try and avoid both errors; I, for example, believe out Mohammedan friends are quite real, more's the pity, but feel like I learned enough about them on 9/11 as not really care to learn very much more.

Obsessed with skyscrapers and wants to visit SA you say? Does he have an interest in flying (sans takeoff/landing)?

Tell him to read Richard Burton’s biography (not the actor) and if he wants to go, that’s how he’ll have to do it.
