On the Anniversary of Saddam Hussein's Execution
In San Diego County, California
Ladies and gentlemen,
Friends and supporters of the Iraqi resistance,
The story of Abraham's attempt to sacrifice his son in obedience to
his God, according to Jewish and non-Jewish contemporary
archeologists and historians, is a myth, one of the many Jewish
Nevertheless, Saddam Hussein's sacrifice of his two sons, grandson,
family members, and his own life in the Mother of all Battles that
the United States, with all its destructive power, cannot end, is
real not fiction. Hundreds of millions throughout the world saw him
walking to the gallows, calm, composed, with his head up high and
defiant. That day was and is the true Eid of Sacrifice. We
Palestinians honor and celebrate his great memory on this day. It
gave us pride and hope, and strengthened our determination to
continue the march. Victory is on the horizon.
Saddam loved Palestine and we loved Saddam. Had he betrayed
Palestine and the Palestinians, Saddam would have been alive today.
He would be joining President Mubarak of Egypt, King Abdallah of
Saudi Arabia, and King Abdallah II of Jordan in the American Zionist
conspiracy and attempt to crush the Palestinians.
I wish I am with you in person as you gather to commemorate the life
of Saddam Hussein. It is a great honor. Unfortunately, I cannot. I
have been pinned down day and night to satellite TV. Jewish
controlled American media, which blame the victims, would not dare
bring the terrifying picture that I have been seeing. I have been
watching live the bloodbath and the holocaust being inflicted on the
helpless people of Gaza. I have been watching American weapons of
mass destruction in action. I have been watching the F16's, the
Apache helicopters, and gun boats dropping the most destructive
bombs, Israel's Christmas and New Year's fireworks, on people who
have no means to reach them. I have been watching body parts of men,
women and children scattered in the streets and pulled from
underneath the rubble. I have been watching Israeli rockets
targeting apartment buildings, homes, schools, universities, mosques,
clinics, and even ambulances. The Islamic University, the oldest and
largest scientific complex in Gaza, was hit and destroyed a couple
days ago. Today, Dar al-Arqam, a highly respected private school,
received the same fate. Arab educational institutions, according to
American and Israeli leaders, are legitimate targets. They
One of the most moving experiences that made me cry was a "speech"
delivered by a 5 year old Palestinian girl standing in her destroyed
bedroom in the midst of her shattered dolls, and torn and burned
clothes. "Where are we going to sleep?", she wondered. "EVEN I was
terrified," she added. The word, EVEN, coming from an innocent
pretty little girl, who thinks of herself to be strong and brave, is
making my heart traumatized with pain. I am certain, this girl, if
she survives the massacre carried out by the "fourth-military-power"
in the world, will, in a few years, become a "terrorist" leader.
Seriously, her speech, her logic, her tone of voice, and her hands'
gesture, were more effective than those of Barak Obama, who inspired
millions of people worldwide. Of course, unlike the U.S. President-
elect, it is doubtful that Westerners will ever hear her, since she
is a Palestinian, an Arab and a Muslim.
What hurts me the most is the fact that I can only watch the
bloodbath, the genocide and the holocaust the helpless and
defenseless Palestinians are subjected to. Bush designated
Palestinian charitable institutions which assist orphans and widows
as terrorist organizations. Aiding those institutions is punishable
by long term jail sentences. Gaza has been under Israeli military
siege for many months. Civilians are denied all basic requirements
of life, food, drinking water, medicine, electricity and fuel.
Ironically, President-elect Obama has been having a good time in
Hawaii. He pretends to be deaf and blind. Those who expected change
from Obama may soon be disappointed. Unless he speaks out and take
positive and courageous steps against occupation, oppression and
genocide, Obama will soon be next to Bush, a mass murderer and war
criminal, in history books. Silence is complicity.
Five days have passed and none of Israel's objectives have been
realized. Palestinian will to resist will not be broken.
Palestinian resistance has made it clear; no negotiations will be
considered until aggression is completely stopped; unless the siege
of Gaza is fully lifted; and unless the people of Gaza exercise their
right to move, travel and trade freely and have communication with
the outside world. Gaza is the most densely area in the world. One
and a half million Palestinians live in 150 square miles. More than
500 targets were indiscriminately hit and destroyed. All-out-
starvation has not worked. All-out-war will also fail. Palestinians
are fighting back. Their homemade rockets, though small and
primitive, have forced almost one million Jewish settlers to hide in
shelters. Remember that the settlements Palestinians hit, are towns
and villages from which they were forcefully evicted by Jewish gangs,
robbers and bandits.
Israel was defeated in Southern Lebanon in July of 2006. Certainly,
Israel will be defeated in Gaza. Victory of the oppressed will
prevail. We see it now in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Saddam is satisfied, contented and at peace in his grave.
