Executing Saddam and humiliating Arabs

Is the timing of the Saddam execution humiliating to Arabs? Good (if the answer is yes), because I think that’s the most absurd thing I’ve heard this year. If you really feel humiliated by the fact that Saddam was executed on the first day of the Eid holidays, then surf away from this blog immediately. You will find no sympathy here.

Do Arabs feel humiliated because they are ruled by dictators who don’t give a toss about what they think? Isn’t it humiliating that women are sexually harassed in the streets? How many innocent people are languishing in Arab prisons for expressing their beliefs? That’s not humiliating? How does it feel to live in a country where you know torture is practiced in police stations everyday and corrupt politicians are untouchable? The list is long, but the bottom line is (and I’ll be blunt about it), only an idiot would ignore the shit that’s all around us and feel humiliated because Saddam was executed on Eid. So to all the clever “analysts” who think that the timing of the Saddam execution risks an Arab backlash I say: relax, we are not easily humiliated.

Please read carefully what the Egyptian foreign ministry spokesman Alaa al-Hadidi told the official MENA agency: “The timing of the execution did not take into consideration the feelings of Muslims and the sanctity of this day which represents amnesty and forgiveness.”

This is amazing. Egyptian officials are all of a sudden talking about being considerate to the feelings of people and preaching about amnesty and forgiveness.

A commentary carried by the official Saudi Press Agency said: “There has been a feeling of surprise and dismay that the implementation of the (death) sentence (against the former Iraqi president) came on the first day of Eid al-Adha during which Muslims come together,"

What a load of shit. Since when do Saudis come together with anyone or even with each other?

Actually, since they were going to execute him anyway, it's good that they did it on Eid. Everybody's on holiday and noone is in the mood to demonstrate and burn flags and or blow up people.

  • Once again, an excellent post!

    Outrage from Saudi Arabia over the execution? What? The same Saudi Arabia that wouldn't know what Human Rights are if it hit them in the head! Would they have protested if Saddaam was a Shia, a Kurd or a Persian? Would they have protested if he was a Jew or Christian?? Hell no they wouldn't, they would've gave them the noose. And this coming from a country that is recognized around the world as one of, if not THE, leader in executions...at least they didn't decapitate him like the Saudis would have preferred. LOL. Saudi Arabia protesting Saddaam's execution. That is too funny and SO hypocritical.

    But then again, don't Egyptians consider Saudi's their best friends?? Egyptians considering Saudi's their best friends and America as their enemy. Makes me wanna puke. Seems to me too many Egyptians are REALLY confused these days. Either that or Saudi's Wahabbi doctrine has already spread like the Plague all over our country. Probably both.

  • Excellent post! You made a number of very good points here.

    Did anyone feel sorry for Mussolini? Or Couscescu? I think not.

    As for the Saudis, they will cut your head off for being on the wrong road for having the wrong religion.
