Palestinians think Saddam was cool

Layla Anwar wrote a post in defense of Saddam, which is not surprising. But she made some good points, and of course some deceptive ones. She called it "Saddam Hussein's Iraq." As if Saddam owned the country. Well he certainly acted like he owned Iraq.

It's not surprising that Tony of the Palestinian Pundit (a Levantine Christian who moved to California in the 60s, like Sirhan Sirhan) has posted Layla Anwar's entire post. The Palestinians, along with most Sunni Arabs, seem to think Saddam was a cool cat. He safeguarded Iraqi Christians, who have been persecuted since the fall of Saddam. This is true.

Layla: "Did any of the Arab countries safeguard the rights of Arab Christians like Saddam's Iraq did ? The answer is a flat NO."

Here's where the deception begin: "Did any country in the Middle East/Arab world engage as many Shias in the political process as Saddam's Iraq did ? The answer is again a flat NO."

Engage the Shias in the political process? How? By imprisoning them and hanging them? By torturing them?

Layla wrote: "Over 60% of BOTH the Baath party as well as the leadership was Shia."

I've heard this repeated many times, and it's true. But no Shia ever reached Saddam's top brass, who were all Tikriti. There was never a Shia Vice President in "Saddam's Iraq". The current Vice President of Iraq is a SUNNI Arab.

Saddam mass murdered Iraqi Shia, Kurds, and killed any Sunni Arab who dare tell the truth about the criminality of Saddam's govt. And the Arabs kinda like the mass murderer. It is so embarrassing.

Vali Nasr summarizes the Iraqi Shia struggle under Saddam's rule:

"...Shias have never risen beyond the glass ceiling that separates them from the Sunni elite. A few, such as Saddam's last and highly colorful information minister, Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf, rose to prominence. But they were tokens in a world where Shia feet never trod the real halls of power. Saddam Hussein liked to make much of the second part of his name before his Shia subjects - especially during the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s - but he nevertheless characterized Shias as Iranian lackeys, and he periodically purged the Ba'th Party of its Shia members in order to make sure that the levers of state power and the banner of Arab nationalism remained firmly in Sunni hands. Shia privates filled the ragtag conscript ranks of Saddam's poorly equipped and ill-trained regular army, but the elite Republican Guards and Special Republican Guards were Sunnis almost to a man. "

I might add to this post later...

A murderous Arab dictator didn’t kill people simply for being Christian. Wow, what a great point.

I've never seen mass murder referred to as 'political process' before ;^)

vali nasr, an iranian was adviser to g.bush and the neocoons. that makes him credible in the eyes of this american doormat.

My impression is that Saddam was more tribal than sectarian. If you came from Tikrit, you were one of the boys.

Shiites were excluded from power for over 300 years. The Turks gave power to the Sunni Arab elite,and the Brits kept it there. Power stayed within the same elite circle after independence. Bush Sr. did his bit by giving into Saudi pressure and not forcing a regime change in '91.

Shia religeous parties got almost 50% of the vote in this election. Smaller numbers of Shia voted for Iraqiya. The Kurds got 20% of the vote. That's more than 70% of Iraqis who were excluded from power under Saddam.....and a few dozen leaders that preceded him.

Iraq has coalition governments now. No group has to be excluded from anything. Bruno might not like it,but the system is much fairer to EVERYONE than anything Sadman or his predecessers came up with.

Yeah for some reason Mojo posts stuff designed to validate the views of American morons

Stupid is upset because Layla Anwar is a real Iraqi, who knows her country, and speaks its language. Her post as usual speaks the truth about Iraq. All stupid can do is sit on his ass in California and vomit his sectarian nonsense to 3 Americans as stupid as he is.

For those of you who actually know Iraq and the Iraqi people, the Shia themselves will tell you that it is all lies what is said about Saddam. But that does not matter in California. Here in California it is American pop culture and the "news" that brainwash all of you idiots whether your ancestors are pigish pink and white or Arab. All of you are stupid.

Stupid is also upset because Layla Anwar is an internationally known blogger and journalist who's writings are quoted and translated into dozens of languages while stupid can only claim 3 American pigs for a readership. lol.

Did you think you were clever mentioning sirhan sirhan with Tony as the same time? What are you trying to say? A guy like Tony killed Kennedy? Anybody can see past this cheap attempt. Very dumb. Very dumb indeed. Saddam Hussein never persecuted the Shia. You can repeat these lies all you want but nobody believes you. Don't you get tired of it? People are tired of hearing about it.

Are you going to call me falastizi again? A falastini would wipe the floor with you.

It is so funny seeing how frustrated the stupid American eyeraki has become because nobody believes his boring drivel. Sorry asshole but we are not all stupid Americans here. Atleast you are a really cool dude. I'd bet you are not spending your saturday night on an island somewhere drinking a few cold beers (because you are a secular shia of course lol ) and hanging out with the hot Latin Women. What a cool dude! hahahahahahahahh

Dear Mojo, don't bother yourself with the shit called sunni jarabs.

It's very disgusting when they talk about justice and they are sectarian.

They are the most sectarian, racists creatures on this world. The image of Islam has been destroyed because of them. May Allah curse Omar and his followers.

In I was in charge of Iraq instead of Al-maliki, I will make Anbar, Ramadi...etc (the villages which are filled with illiterates and racists people) into ghost cities. kick them out of Iraq to the wahhabi state or jordon to live with their fellow animals (so called Palestinians).

They work for the Israels and they wanna have an independent state. The reality, they sold their countries and got the money.

I can see falastizi writing freely in ur blog while we can't express our opinion in their websites or blog.

I know why Mojo allows him because he got shia blood.

God bless you Man

Internatinally renowned Iraqi Journalist and Blogger Layla Anwar has another great post on the drillmaster Mooqdadie USAdr.

Poor mojo his entire readership consists of the same three American pigs, a couple of Arabs who only stop by to make fun of him.

Good thing this poor thing is a really cool dude who visits islands, drinks cold beer and partys with the hot latin women. roflmao

dear Maury,
Bush Sr.'s foolish '91 decision to leave Saddam in power, and leave the USA "holding the wolf by the ear" was not only influenced by the Saudis.There was long an analysis,famously expressed as Gen.Powell's "Pottery Barn Rule", that the removal of Saddam's iron fist would result in a ungovernable Iraq in which the US military would be STUCK dealing with the chaos ;That's pretty much what happened by'06.The USA & GWB hung in there until we finally lucked out,and the Iraqis stood up to claim their country.

Iraqi intelligence must have a number of informants inside AQI. The leadership of the Mosul area was decimated last month. Emir of operations,finance,diaper enforcement etc. Now,AQI's two top mongrels dead,and 16 mutts arrested. Why didn't these 16 go down fighting like their bosses?

I bet they're all gay. What good is 72 virgins to a homosexual jihadi? They're singing like canaries now. The few remaining Al Queda cells will be getting a knock on the door in the next week or so.

Hey "Iraqi" American,

Its funny, u prostituted urself yo maliki, saying u supported his shia ideology...NOW Allawi, another pig, is in office, and you bow your head to him in submission.

Just proves the shias will prostitute themselves to ANYONE, including a criminal and thief for power. It was never about ideology, it was always about the gold coin.
