|By Matein Khalid| Saudi Arabia has fascinated me since I first met Hani AZ Yamani as a teenage student all those years ago at Wharton. Hani’s father was Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yamani, legendary Saudi Oil Minister (1962-86) under Kings Faisal, Khalid and Fahd. Sheikh Yamani managed the 1973 and 1979 oil shocks, survived a terrorist assault in Vienna by Carlos the Jackal, midwifed the birth of Saudi Aramco, the largest energy colossus on earth. His famous quip “The Stone Age did not end because mankind ran out of stones” rings true in the oil world of 2015. Thanks to Hani, Sheikh Yamani personally read and liked the first column I ever wrote in life for the Penn campus newspaper. (a plea for the Reagan White House to help the besieged Palestinians in West Beirut during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon).
