ABSTRACT
The article presents opinion on the involvement of Arab financiers in the establishment of a Hilton hotel in Atlanta, Georgia and the rumors that the Arab nations are going to lift their oil embargo against the U.S. It speculates that the changes in the mood of Arab leaders may have something to do with the planned hotel. If oil-producing nations decide to use their power to devastate the economies of industrialized nations, the base on which their power rests will also be affected.
