'Zabiba and the King' appears to be a genuine attempt by Saddam Hussein to resolve some of the contradictions in his own nature and his political philosophy. While CIA analysts focused on the allegorical dimension of the novel, it is open to multiple interpretations like all genuine works of literature/5(9). Saddam Hussein has 21 books on Goodreads with ratings. Saddam Hussein’s most popular book is Jak nakarmić dyktatora.   While many of Saddam Hussein's acts were ruthless and he certainly did abuse his authority, he DID do some good for Iraq, as strange as it may seem. If anyone here is looking for a fair and balanced book about Saddam Hussein, I highly reccommend 'Saddam Hussein-Politics of Revenge' by Said K. by: Called upon to make the official ID, Nixon looked for telltale scars and tribal tattoos and asked Hussein a list of questions only he could answer. The man was indeed Saddam Hussein, but as Nixon learned in the ensuing weeks, both he and America had greatly misunderstood just who Saddam Hussein /5().

  Stuck in his personal prison, Saddam Hussein seemed a benign presence to his man band of U.S. guards who watched him as the former Iraqi dictator was tried for crimes against : Ray Locker. Zabibah and the King (Arabic: زبيبة والملك ‎ Zabībah wal-Malik), also transliterated Zabiba and the King, written in , is a novel that the CIA believes was written by Saddam Hussein, probably with the help of some ghostwriters.   The comparison of Saddam Hussein with King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon is very interesting. According to Mr. Marsh, all the arguments for the comparison were taken from the book of 2 Kings. However, what these preachers do not know is that Nebuchadnezzar is presented one way in the book of 2 Kings and another way in the book of the prophet Jeremiah. Hussein bin Talal (Arabic: الحسين بن طلال ‎, Al-Ḥusayn ibn Ṭalāl; 14 November – 7 February ) reigned as King of Jordan from 11 August until his death in As a member of the Hashemite dynasty, the royal family of Jordan since , Hussein claimed to be a 40th-generation direct descendant of Muhammad.. Hussein was born in Amman as the eldest child of Father: Talal of Jordan.

Arab — The protagonist of the story, the novel follows 'Arab as he becomes king of Iraq. The character represents Saddam Hussein. Zabibah (زبيبة) — A poor woman in an unhappy marriage, she is the love interest of 'Arab. Zabibah represents the people of Iraq. Zabibah's husband — A cruel y: Ba'athist Iraq. The king who is her platonic and philosophical lover represents Saddam Hussein, and Zabiba's brutish and abusive husband is the American government and military. Reading the story and its' scattered notes, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if it's true.3/5. WHAT IS IT ABOUT? Zabiba and the King is an allegorical love story between a mighty king (Saddam) and a simple, yet beautiful commoner named Zabiba (the Iraqi people). Zabiba is married to a cruel and unloving husband (the United States) who forces himself upon her against her will. This act of rape is compared to the United States invasion of Iraq/5(2).   This cable shows King Hussein's continuing efforts on behalf of Iraq in its war with Iran and on behalf of Arab solidarity - as witnessed by his invitation to Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak to join him at a recent meeting with Saddam Hussein in Baghdad.
