You can have rude (meaning brash, not very respectful of personal space, loud, etc...) but friendly and hospitable people and polite but unfriendly ones.
that is absolutely true , refined people can be unfriendly in the general understanding of the term

Yeah UK is unfriendliest for me, Scotland and England are rude but apparently Ireland is a bit more friendly.

Yes disrespectfulness may be relative. The point is if it was intentional or not.

I have met many Arabs actually some very friendly others very unfriendly and I was stating a fact about Saui laws and other Arab countries also have strict laws for stealing. You know in some Arab countries it is illegal to masturbate and have sex before marriage, not frowned upon but actually illegal, do not insult me I have probably traveled more than you I am not an American that has just stayed in the US I have traveled a lot, to Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Riyadh.

completely agree. For instance Italians are usually friendly and welcoming but can be pretty rude and unpolite, sometimes without realizing it.
