Land of fabled Arabian nights torn bv strife By KEVIN DOYLE Canadian Press Staff Writer The land of the fabled Ara- bian nights, where legend places the Garden of Eden, is on the edge of a major political which has reverberated throughout the Arab world. 1 Iraq, perched at the tip of the i oil-rich Persian Gulf, has been torn in the last two weeks by I internal rebellion, murder and rapidly deteriorating relations with its Arab neighbor, Iran. I Hassan al-Bakr, Iraq's strong- l man president, has since 1968 headed one of the world's most i secretive and authoritarian gov- 'emments.

Evans and Sill have left al-Bakr's future In doubt Most observers believe al- Bakr still is in power but there have been suggestions that he is under house arrest and that his vice-president, Siddam Hussein, has assumed control of the country. In any case, it appears fairly certain that the abortive coup attempt was organized and led by Col. Nazim Kazzar, Iraq's security director, who also kid- napped and murdered Shihab and tried to kill Lt.-Gen. Soa- dum Ghaidan, the interior min- ister. KURDS BLAMED The rebellion was launched last Saturday as al-Bakr re- turned from a visit to Poland and Hungary, but by mid-week Squabbles lead readily into last- big dissension if you let them.

Let comment or criticism pass you by it may not apply to you anyway. MONDAY, JULY t Your birthday today: gin your year resolved to clear off any excess baggage. Creativity is on the rise. The broad outlines of change are sufficient for most purposes; details to be filled in later. Existing relations thrive de- spite distractions. Today's na- tives must make prompt and vigorous use of their oppor- tunities. ARIES (March April Declutter your schedule, select Zumstein; 3. Rick Spackman and Bill E.W. 1. Helen Fcss and W. L.

Most responsibility for the weekend violence, observers be- lieve, rests with the country's frustrated and angry Kurdish minority. This group lives mainly in the desolate desert regions of northern Iraq and has, for years, been waging war against the central government in a futile bid for autonomy. In 1970, the fighting officially ended with a shaky truce being signed by the Kurds and author- ities in Baghdad. The govern- ment promised to recognize two nations within Iraq: tire Kurds and the Arabs. It also pledged itself to making Kurdish the of- ficial language in areas where the Kurds were in a majority. Other concessions included an agreement to make certain the post of vice-president was occu- pied by a Kurd and that Kur- dish areas had relatively auton- omous forms of regional gov- ernment. Few, if any, of these pledges have ever been carried out and fighting has once again erupted in northern Iraq. ers. Put your accounts in or- der.
