A Qatari man in a traditional white dishdasha robe and a wind-blown red-and-white kaffiyeh stands before a sandstone formation near Dukhan. Qatar, a desert-covered Persian Gulf peninsula about the size of Jamaica, may be small, but its oil and natural gas reserves give it big clout. Per capita incomes there are among the highest in the world.
