Shootings Middle East

FEATURED ARTICLES
ENTERTAINMENT
July 7, 1985
In Joan Borsten's article on the filming of "The Jewel of the Nile," Michael Douglas is shown to be a man oblivious to humanity ("Romancing the Sands of Morocco," June 23). In a country of "20 million deeply religious Muslims, many of them very poor," Douglas deigns to pay $2 a day to each of 2,500 extras so that he can shoot a film during the Muslims' holy month of Ramadan. Douglas is quoted as saying about his movie, "Perhaps the Arabs won't like what we've done--it's only natural for them to be sensitive," and he goes on to show why he thinks that's OK: After all, "Deliverance" riled rednecks and "China Syndrome" bashed big business.

January 7, 1991 | BRIAN MICHAEL JENKINS, Brian Michael Jenkins, a former Green Beret and an authority on terrorism, is a managing director of Kroll Associates, Los Angeles, an international investigative and consulting firm
In the classic Western movie, normal life in a peaceful town--the opening scene--is interrupted by the ominous arrival of a clearly identified villain. Outrages accumulate. Initially reluctant, but ultimately forced to fight, the hero confronts the villain in a swift gun battle, and although sometimes wounded, inevitably he triumphs--as the West eventually would in war with Iraq--and the world is again in order.
