... a political good-will...... that of the Sheikh Zayed!

Since the official creation of the United Arab Emirates, in December 2nd, 1971, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan was the only President, until his recent death, November 2nd, 2004.

His face was placarded a little everywhere in the streets...

Sounds like "Big Brother" !? ...
... hard to tell.

But the majority of the inhabitants of the country seem to venerate him with sincerity.

One thing is sure: this man had the political good-will to change the destiny of his country.

In the sixties - seventies, he chose the way of economic development while some of his neighbors - Iraq, Iran or Syria - followed that of the militarization.
