Saudi king offers few clues to succession




By Dominic Evans
RIYADH: Despite the advanced age of both King Abdullah and his new crown prince, the new Saudi ruler may break with precedent and avoid naming a second-in-line rather than appoint a conservative opposed to his planned reforms. Abdullah named a crown prince, or heir apparent, immediately after assuming the throne of the world’s biggest oil exporter on Monday when King Fahd died. But nearly a week later he has given no hint whether he will nominate an heir to the heir.

King Fahd and Saudi friendship with the United States

James J. Zogby

The first of my many visits to Saudi Arabia was in 1981. Therefore, for most of the time that I have known the kingdom and its people, Fahd Ben Abdulaziz Al Saud was king and a friend of the United States.

King Fahd’s Kindness and Respect for Elders
Michael Saba, sabamps@aol.com I had the opportunity to meet King Fahd of Saudi Arabia only once. It was a particularly memorable experience — not only my meeting with the king, but also the meeting that preceded my introduction to the king.
