DEATH OF KING HUSSEIN February 7, 1999

DEATH OF KING HUSSEIN February 7, 1999 Uncertain wings, Hawk of the Qureish fly out of the night to meet the coming day of certain mourning, he is set to die as is uncertain peace that was his way. Amman is crying, streets are washed with tears of followers and tribesmen of his own who've prayed for miracles down through the years but he is all the miracle they've known. The powder keg is primed, and set to blow what peace he's made now hostage to the past, and still the Jordan makes it's dreary flow through all his world and time that can not last. divided tribes are joining, aiming for a swift, decisive act of holy war.
