    Does this lodge meet on a military base? If so, can non-military US citizens attend lodge? Do you need authorization to be on the military base?

    I do not believe (although I could be wrong) that there has EVER been a Freemason lodge in Yemen. I heard that in Iran after the revolution of the late 1970s the government, under the VERY MISTAKEN IDEA that Freemasonry is pro-Zionist and anti-Islam, executed Freemasons by hanging-most dictatorships do not want Freemasonry in their territory.

    If somehow you could leave Yemen and be a Freemason (hundreds of US$ and from 6 months to 3 years of study) you would not be able to return to Yemen.

    Mohammed:

    Iran during and after the revolution of the late 1970s, because Freemasonry was considered “imperialistic, pro-Zionist and anti-Islamic” (none of which is true), instituted the DEATH PENALTY and executed Freemasons by hanging.
    Some Iranian Freemasons escaped to the USA and formed lodges in exile-they cannot go back to Iran probably.

    I think that the only countries which have a Muslim majority that permit Freemasonry would be Turkey, Syria, certain regions of the former Yugoslavia, and maybe Morocco.
    Egypt closed the mason lodges in the 1960s.

    To become a Freemason you would have to probably have to leave Yemen, be able to give to the lodge on the order of hundreds of US$ for dues/fees/charity (for children’s medical problems): depending where you go, from 6 months to 3 years of study to be a full member-and to do this without being a hardship on you or your family.

    Also, I’m certain that the military and police monitor internet communications so be careful. There is nothing in Freemasonry that you could not find in your place of worship or the teachings of your beloved older relatives as you were growing up. The real secret of the Masons is:

    WE MAKE GOOD MEN BETTER.

    We have no influence on other countries

    I did belong to one Christian fraternity which had a Supreme President and a world-wide headquarters in USA -Masons are NOT like that.

    Lodges in Dubai are on US military bases that are restricted to US military personnel (or with civilian workers with special authorization) that are assigned to those bases.

    If I am not correct, please let me know

    Thanks for the correction. Out of ignorance (and I should know better) did not think that Lebanon has a Muslim majority.

    I think you meant Serbia, rather than Syria. Yes, as to Morocco. For a list, see https://www.ugle.org.uk/about/foreign-grand-lodges
