    Having looked into the matter, as many others on this board have, it seems that al Masri made his money by supporting the US military buildup in Saudi Arabia and from other dubious projects. In other words, I was right--and I maintain that billionairres in the Arab world are in all likelihood not honest businessmen, which is probably true elsewhere, but with the system of corruption in the Arab world this a near certainty because the system rewards more corruption and fortunes are made on wasta rather than on talent. For this reason, this man will probably become the favorite of the US and aspire to rule over a puppet regime like those in Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Morocco, Lebanon, etc. So to clarify, you were incorrect, and perhaps in the future you should do some research before accusing others of "jealousy". But thanks for reminding me that I am an Arab.
