He was born and raised in Kuwait. He married here, had two children and has toiled for more than 10 years at the same cake plant, where he worked his way up to marketing manager. But Ahmed, whose parents came from Palestine nearly a half-century ago, cannot vote and cannot own real estate in Kuwait. He is not a citizen by Kuwaiti law and has no chance of ever becoming one--nor do his children. And he is fed up. "This . . . place, these people. I give everything--everything!"

The Kuwaiti military has dumped hundreds of people, arrested since liberation two weeks ago, on Iraq's border, and several said they had been tortured and brutally beaten by Kuwaiti troops in a secret prison. U.S. military police say three to four buses and trucks have arrived daily for at least four days, dropping Palestinians, Jordanians, North Africans and Iraqis at this desolate border crossing. Many were badly bruised, and at least two men required hospitalization, the Americans said.

Hundreds of refugees from the Persian Gulf War streamed out of blitzed Iraq today, saying civilians are struggling to exist amid incessant allied bombing and telling horror stories of living conditions in Kuwait. The refugees, trapped in freezing mid-winter desert country since Baghdad virtually shut the frontier at midnight Jan. 22, left behind thousands of displaced people huddled around fires and trying to escape rain and snowstorms in makeshift huts.

With Jordan facing bleak times in the current Middle East crisis, officials and observers are having second thoughts about the wisdom of its apparent backing for Iraq and the invasion of Kuwait. Jordan finds itself treated with hostility by neighboring Saudi Arabia and other oil-producing countries of the Persian Gulf. The United States and Europe are pressuring Jordan's leader, King Hussein, to apply U.N.-authorized economic sanctions against the Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein.

Curiously, it was not only the far right wing in Israel that last week called for suspension of Mideast peace talks. Shimon Peres, the leader of the relatively dovish Labor party and a longtime advocate of such negotiations did too. With early elections on tap after two rightist parties pulled out from Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir's ruling coalition, Peres argued that "what passes for negotiations should be stopped since the whole thing is just a fashion show."
