    First of all, I find nothing more amusing than the opinions people have about Saddam, Iraq, America, Bush and so on and so forth but have no first hand understanding of both cultures. I am Arab-American, I have been to Iraq (Baghdad, Mosul, & Telkepi), my parents were born there, we still have homes and family there and Saddam's hanging was probably the most heartbreaking thing I have ever seen in my life. Before everyone jumps on President Bush's bandwagon of American pride let's not forget that the Bush family owns a great percentage of the gas industry and the puppet we have for a president is nothing more than momma's boy trying to finish what his daddy couldn't. I loved the headline on CNN when I landed in the Phoenix airport on Friday: "Saddam Executed after FAIR TRIAL" The United States so conveniently covered their ass with the "Fair Trial." What's fair about having 3 of your lawyers killed?? Defense attorneys had no access to evidence?? (Will continue later)

Sara Netanyahu's house of horrors

People who have the misfortune to work in the Prime Minister’s Residence live in a milieu of terror in its classic sense: a place in which fear and dread are imposed by means of violence, force and threats. This has now been established by a court ruling.
