Dear list members, What a disgusting title that was!! judging someones political opinion by where he lives or we he comes from. Hassan did not like at all, Ghazwan called it "tactics of a dictator". And for the second time, I find myself obliged to agree with Ghazwan. EVERY IRAQI IS A BA'ATHIST is a very famous saying by ... guess who? Yes it is Saddam Husein. (or as Ghazwan refers to him, SH) Does Ghazwan agree with what SH had said? And if he does not, did he make his feelings public? When Hassan was in Iraq, what did he do to express his disagreement? It seems that he can't even shout his disagreement from across high seas!! Hassan said that Saddam's Iraq supported every liberation movement in the world. Did that include Kuwaiti liberation movement from Saddam's occupation? Or does he agree with Saddam's government story (Kuwaitis invited Saddam to invade them to free them!! Yes that's the official story, ask Nermin), or was Saddam on his way to liberate Palestine but got lost in the desert? Bert, don't waste your time trying to convince the likes of Ghazwan ans Hassan who are defending a self confessed dictator. Saddam openly declared on TV in 1981: "A law is a piece of paper on which I write one or two lines and sign underneath it". One piece of paper that went out of Saddam's office was Decree Number 840 (published by the Official Gazette Number 3124 on 17/11/1986) saying that anyone publicly insulting the President or his regime would be imprisoned for life and have all their property confiscated. "Punishment shall be death", the decree added, "if the insult was flagrant and aimed to stir up public opinion against authorities". Is this why Ghazwan refers to Saddam as SH? Because sayying Saddam Husein without "his excellency the great leader" might be considered a bit of an insult and makes Ghazwan liable to face the shooting squad. Does any member on list still think that AI should have ignored Saddam's violations of human rights? ahmed Sent by Mail at easy.com, an easyGroup company. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
