Saddam Hussein, The Martyr of the Arab people

Dyab Abou JAhjah, Arab-European League

30 December, 2006

What a sad day , and what a humiliation to our Arab people and Arab masses when the enemy of our people, The American occupier and its puppets and collaborators execute the legitimate president of Iraq on the day of Eid.

Let me set one thing straight, I have never been a fan of Saddam Hussein nor of his regime and I always hoped that the Iraqi people would be able of ousting him and bringing him to justice like I wish he same for all dictators and war criminals around the world including Bush, Olmert and Blair. Nevertheless, not one hair on my head would envisage accepting foreign occupation and the ousting of an Arab leader by the enemy of our nation, no matter how bloodthirsty , oppressive or corrupted that leader can be.

And yes I understand the personal anger and emotions of the victims of Saddam’s ruthless rule especially among Shi’a Iraqi’s and Kurds, but this should by no means be a reason to put personal vendetta above the freedom and the sovereignty of our people as a whole.

Should the frustration against the ruthless rule of every Arab dictator be solved by inviting foreign occupation and collaborating with it? And how is that a constructive path towards the future of our people? Are we blind to the violent and chaotic situation in Iraq today and can’t we see that under Saddam the situation was much better for the average Iraqi citizen despite an embargo? And did we forget that before the embargo Iraq was one of the most prosperous and developed Arab states? And who is responsible for the death of millions of Iraqi’s by Embargo and by war afterwards? Saddam or the occupation?

But even if Iraq would be a paradise today, how can honorable men and women enjoy life under the boots of foreign occupation?

I am a Shi’a Arab and according to CNN and BBC I am supposed to be cheering the death of Saddam, but instead I am feeling a deep sense of sorrow and sympathy with him that I never had before.

Saddam might have been a dictator, but today he is the martyr of the Arab people and of the Arab resistance not only in Iraq, but also in Palestine and in Lebanon.

Yes Saddam died as a martyr to his Nation and as a resistance leader in captivity. He walked proudly towards his fate without compromising with the occupier and in my book this alone makes him a hero and this alone makes me forget anything he might have inflicted upon my people.

How can I cheer the death of a legal Arabic president who is ousted by force through an illegal invasion based upon false pretexts and lies. And how can I recognize anything based upon that occupation? Whether it is elections, governments, tribunal or any other products of the American rule? The government in Iraq is even less legitimate then the Vichy government that collaborated with the Nazi’s. The Vichy government was already in power by the sovereign decision of the French people and decided to collaborate and that was enough for general De Gaulle to consider it as a bunch of traitors and fight it. This Iraqi government is totally a result of occupation and collaboration and is therefore more to be condemned and less legal and legitimate than the Vichi government ever was. The only legal and legitimate representative of the Iraqi people is the National Iraqi resistance.

The martyrdom of Saddam was meant to be a poisoned present from Bush and his puppets in Iraq to the Arabs and the Muslims on this Eid Holliday, and they maybe missed the meaning of this Islamic Holliday. The Eid al Adha is the feast of Sacrifice where Muslims celebrate the sacrifice made by Abraham to save his Son Ismael. The symbolism of this is paramount, as Martyrdom is conceived as a sacrifice to save the Nation and its freedom. Saddam would have not wanted to die on any other day, and once again the blunders of the enemy will continue to feed the will of resistance and struggle.

On this day, I am no more willing to see Saddam as the dictator who must be brought to trial as even justice can be corrupted in the service of world forces of oppression and by double standards. A tribunal for Saddam and a Tribunal for the death of Hariri are very necessary even if they lead to destroy a country while a Tribunal for Sharon is to be prevented by all means. A corrupted and collaborating government in Lebanon is supported as the only legitimate government even when the majority of its people are demonstrating against it, while in Ukraine and Georgia these demonstrations are considered more legitimate than an elected government. In Palestine the elected government is being boycotted and the people is being punished for voting. Calling for early elections in Palestine is good and legitimate and a way to solve the problems while calling for early elections in Lebanon is unconstitutional and undemocratic and a coup. This is the world under the management of the United States and its lackeys in Europe, some sort of farm where only the farmer sets the rules of the game and decides to ride his animals or slaughter them at any time according to his own impulses and interests.

But we are no animals in a farm Mr Bush, and our only representatives are the resistance movements in Iraq, in Lebanon and in Palestine they represent our revival and the hope of liberating our land from foreign occupation and oppression.

Saddam Hussein might have lived as an oppressor and a dictator, but he died as a resistant and freedom fighter and this is how he will be remembered. God bless his soul.
