BY WOLF BLITZER

King Hussein

Washington
— Jordan's King
Hussein is a
savvy survivor.
He has been
around the inter-
national circuit
for more than
three decades.
His most recent
visit to Washing-
ton last week un-
derlined some of
impressive

political skills.
Senior U.S. officials are quite
.fond of the monarch. They always
have been. He is seen as genuinely
moderate and reasonable, certainly

Southfield that maligns Christians
and Jews for alleged crimes against
Indians.
The purpose of the show, accord-
ing to Gene Littlebery, producer and
main spokesman in the program, is
to point out that today, "If you don't
believe it (in God), you'll be killed."
He claims that the Indians lost their
culture when they were forced to ac-
cept the white man's God.
Cong. Beth Tefilo Emanuel Tik-
vah was recently sent a computer-
printed postcard advertising the pro-
gram shown on Continental Cablevi-
sion's Channel 18 in Southfield and
Oak Park. The postcard, sent by
Family of Seven Productions from a
post office box in Farmington Hills,
uses inflammatory language in
promoting the show.
The post office box on the post-
card is registered to a business,
