Palestinians mourn their friend Saddam
They have always been close friends. Now the Palestinians mourn one of their most generous donors. These people should really receive a peaceful, viable state of their own.
JENIN, West Bank (AFP) - Carrying a symbolic coffin for Saddam Hussein, more than 1,000 Palestinians have demonstrated in Jenin in the northern West Bank, in response to the ex-Iraqi president's execution.Of course, it was Ariel Sharon who defeated the second Intifada and Palestinian terrorism. But it is also clear that Saddam's elimination by the Americans has helped a lot, too. The operation Iraqi Freedom especially cut this precious source of funds. For instance, groups like Islamic Jihad have always been grateful receivers of Iraqi money paid in order sponsor terrorsim against Israel. Eliminating both the funds and the leaders (through targeted killings) has proven the most efficient way to overcome terrorism.
