By Robert Azzi Woodlin Camp and Associates c 1980 National Geographic ONCE THE CHIEF means of crossing the Saudi Arabian desert, camels now might hitch a ride with their motorized successors. As the nomads accept government incentives to settle in the cities, pickup-truck mobility links many with their traditional grazing lands and herds of sheep, camels, and goats. Nearly 20,000 Toyota, Datsun, and Mazda cars and trucks are sold each month in oil-rich Saudi Arabia, a country fascinated by machines. Saudi Oil Billions Gush Into Islamic Tradition by National Geographic Service WASHINGTON "-- "Saudi Arabia. Since tne oil Doom, its name says it all: the biggest and best that billions can buy. Three brand-new mutlibillion-dollar airport projects, each claiming it will be the world's biggest. Tremendous tents of Teflon- coated fiberglas-the largest covered space in the world--to shelter millions of jet-age pilgrims to Islan's sacred Mecca. A billion-dollar causeway. A $5-billion university. A $15- billion-plus gas-gathering system. And a $236-bilIion five-year-plan budget that officials are trying to find ways to spend. Land of Superlatives All this in the country that considers itself the spiritual homeland for the world's nearly 800 million Moslems. And all this on one of the most inhospitable land masses on earth, containing the world's largest sand desert, about as big as Texas. Only 1 percent of the entire country is cultivated, and nearly 85 percent of the food must be imported. That's Saudi Arabia-land of superlatives, the source of the world's richest known on reserves that are expanding faster than they are being depleted by production. Catapulted from a nomadic, ' impoverished, partiarchal society into the center of world power and the technological age, young Saudi Arabis--as a kingdom it is not yet 50 years old--is struggling to balance the boundless bounty of its new wealth against its prevailing Islamic tradition. "Our problem here are unique. The question is not money-it's how to spent it," said Oxford-educated Prince Khalid al-Faisal, son of the- late King Faisal and governor of Asir Province. Interviewed by photojournalist Robert Azzi for an article in the September issue of National Geographic, the price explained: "We are trying to compress into a generation or two the gains that have been made in the West since the Industrial Revolution." Minister of Planning Hisham Nazer, along with other government officials, has the task of spending $236 billion (excluding defense) in five years. "The people receive roads, schools, free health care," he said. "Domestic telephone, electricity, water, gasoline, and domestic .air travel are subsidized." Fans of Machines Saudis also get free land to build on, 1 and can get construction loans of up to $90,000 at no interest. And they have to pay back only 80 percent. But construction costs 2M> times what it does in the United States. Almost all building materials must be imported. "Nearly everyone who has electricity has a washing machine, air conditioner, television, radio, and in the big citites, video recorders," said Azzi's Saudi driver, whose wife was home recording the weekly soccer game for him. "We are in love with machines." Saudi officials do not believe that Islam and technology are incompatible. Telephones are being installed all over the country, "but not without respect to the old Islamic values," Azzi writes. "When a village in the Asir got its first telephone service recently, the traditional sacrifice of a lamb was made as a gesture of thanksgiving." In weaving Western ways into the Islamic tradition, the Saudis do not want to make the same mistakes as some of their neighbors. According to Foreign Minister Price Saud, 39-year- old Princeton-educated nephew of King Khalid: "What happened in Iran was not caused by modernization. The alienation took place because of an effort to impose the trappings of a Western society on a society that wasn't geared toil... "In Iran feudal interests were opposed to modernization, and the cohesive effects of Islam were ignored to bring about development. It didn't work. In Saudi Arabia, Islam permeates every aspect of life, in a way not familiar in the West, Islam is based on individual rights and liberties...Every citizen can personally ask the king and other officials for assistance or redress in the frequent majlises (audiences)." What's Left Behind The one-to-one talks between the rulers-today's royal family numbers perhaps 4,000 princes-and the kingdom's estimated 8 million people may not be disappearing, Azzi reports, but at the annual King's Camel Race, he discovered "a sense of the Arabia that is being left behind." The dollars that oil produces "will only speed up the disappearance of the nomads," commented Faisal Saffooq al-Bashir, U.S.- educated deputy minister of planning and a member of the Al Sabaa tribe.
