Many Expatriates Embracing Islam

According to this story in the Arab News, converting to Islam is all the rage in Saudi Arabia.
JEDDAH, 5 July 2007 — A large number of foreign men and women in the Kingdom are embracing Islam each year after learning more about the faith. According to one report, 4,285 expatriate women in the Eastern Province alone have become Muslim in the past five years.

Many Saudi and non-Saudi women are actively engaged in the propagation of Islam among non-Muslim women and compete with their male counterparts, believing that helping a person embrace Islam is one of the greatest achievements done by a Muslim.
I'm sorry, but I question the sincerity of any conversion made in a nation like Saudi Arabia. Convert or die isn't really a free choice, now is it?
