      THOUSANDS IN MIDEAST SCREAMING FOR HOLY WAR

      Cairo--Calls for holy war rang out across the Middle East on Friday as
      thousands of people massed in protest, though governments avoided a repeat
      of the bloody riots that resulted in deaths last week after Islamic prayers.

      Islamic leaders in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Iraq appealed to Allah in anger
      at the U.S.-led attack on Iraq and encouraged their followers to engage in
      holy war. The governments of Egypt, Jordan and Iran all sanctioned protests.

      In Jordan, a preacher, Sheik Zeid Kilani, compared Iraqi President Saddam
      Hussein to Saladin, the greatest Islamic warrior against the Crusaders.
