If Jordan had a president, and if this were an election year, Saddam Hussein would seem to be the front-runner in terms of campaign paraphernalia. Supporters of Hussein--and it is difficult to find a Jordanian who is not--have plastered pictures of the president of neighboring Iraq on just about everything here that doesn't move, and on some things that do--taxicabs, for example. Jordan's King Hussein gets little more than equal billing in this time of crisis.

February 26, 1991 | SERMID AL-SARRAF, SERMID AL-SARRAF is a spokesman for the Orange County-based American Iraqis for Peace and Justice, an organization that opposes Saddam Hussein and the Gulf War. He told The Times:
The people of Iraq have been trying to get rid of Saddam Hussein for the past 12 years. The people of Iraq have been trying to call the world's attention to the atrocities that Saddam Hussein has committed against his own people. The world chose not to listen--in fact they continued to support him. The policy of supporting the dictator and then the policy of going to war with Iraq are policies that have severely hurt the Iraqi people.

Halloween. Time for candied apples, rainbow-colored leaves and, of course, scary monsters. We love to be frightened by cinematic creations such as Hannibal, Freddy and Jason. Unfortunately, we also have some quite real monsters floating around this year: Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. Nobody appreciates the terror that these ghouls inspire. Let's see how we've created these monsters ourselves. Franklin Roosevelt is supposed to have said of a petty dictator: "He may be an SOB, but at least he's our SOB."

Akkad shot two versions--one using an English-speaking cast, the other, Arab actors.

The International Olympic Committee readmitted Iraq as a member in good standing Friday, ensuring that Iraqi athletes will march behind the Iraqi flag Aug. 13 at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Summer Games.
