    It is a laugh to read all this crap about the execution. It was the noble and respected son of the desert king, King Abdallah of Jordan who stated just two years ago, may a paraphrase.... The west is going to have to acept that democraqcy will be different in different countries... Yes it certainly will. As for Saddam, the hanging was what most folks in the middle east and the west wanted, but like eating chicken, nobody wants to know how they are killed. We would like to believe that chickens are sung and spoiled to death, and just like those who pretend to hate Saddam, we will continue to hear, "Oh yes he was a bad man..blah, blah blah...but to hang him? how awful." We are so far from the reality of the middle east. Murder is part of the honor game, as for Saddam showing how honourable he is, all I saw was a guy who looked at his hangers as if they were scum, to be spit upon and no more than that. He is Mark Lincoln's new John Wayne.

Israel's angry, bitter left must reclaim the language of hope

We leftists whine and complain, we only talk about how bleak and hopeless life is in Israel. We alienate all those Israelis whose support we need to bring political change.
