Bye Bye to Bad Rubbish

See below for updates

Looks like Saddam was well hung.

Yes, I do realize that this is already old noose news, but in my defence, it was the Jewish Sabbath, and I had no idea until a few minutes ago that the evil one had met his grisly end.

So given that I cannot really add too much to what has already been said about his execution, I will point you to some of my previous posts making fun of the tyrant.

Updates (Israel time):

8:20PM: Mourning in the palestinian-controlled territories:

The execution of Saddam Hussein sent many Palestinians into deep mourning Saturday as they struggled to come to terms with the demise of perhaps their most steadfast ally.

Unlike much of the rest of the world, where Saddam was viewed as a brutal dictator who oppressed his people and started regional wars, in the West Bank and Gaza he was seen as a generous benefactor unafraid to fight for the Palestinian cause, even to the end.

Saddam’s final words were reportedly, “Palestine is Arab.”

“We heard of his martyrdom, and I swear to God we were deeply shaken from within,” said Khadejeh Ahmad from the Qadora refugee camp in the West Bank. “Nobody was as supportive or stood with the Palestinians as he did.”

During the first Gulf War in 1991, the Palestinians cheered Saddam’s missile attacks on Israel, chanting “Beloved Saddam, strike Tel Aviv,” as the Scud missiles flew overhead.

He further endeared himself to the Palestinians during the recent uprising with Israel by giving US$25,000 to the family of each suicide bomber and US$10,000 for each Palestinian killed in fighting. The stipends amounted to an estimated US$35 million.

Saddam’s support for the Palestinians, whose cause is deeply popular with Arabs throughout the Middle East, was at least partially aimed at gaining widespread support throughout the Arab world.

“Saddam was a person who had the ability to say, ‘No’ in the face of a great country,” said Hosni al Ejel, 46, from the al Amari refugee camp near Ramallah.

“He wanted the Palestinian people to have a state and a government and to be united. But God supports us, and we pray to God to punish those who did this,” said Ghanem Mezel, 72, from the town of Saeer in the southern West Bank.

Others were happy to hear Saddam’s final words, knowing that his support for them remained unshakable until the end.

Palestinians in the West Bank town of Bethlehem opened a “house of condolences” where people can gather to mourn Saddam. The organizers hung Iraqi flags, pictures of Saddam and broadcast Iraqi revolutionary songs.

Mohammed Barghouti, the minister of labor in the Hamas-led Palestinian Cabinet, said that although his Islamic group was often at odds with the secular Saddam, his execution was wrong.

“The Palestinians had bonded with Iraqis in brotherhood,” he said.

8:55PM: Looks like Saddam was born on Tatooine (thanks to Israellycool reader Mark for the Saddam picture)

10:40PM: Would you like fries with that? Saddam reportedly had a thing for infidel food..right to the end.

British newspaper The Daily Mirror reported that the ousted president, who was so virulently opposed to American presence in the Middle East, spent his last days eating some of the foods most associated with the United States – hamburger and fries.

According to the same report which relied on one of Saddam’s military aides, Saddam liked to eat hamburgers and fries and deliberately chose to eat Western fare during his last days.

11:20PM: Via WND is this footage of a newsreader choking at news of the croking.
