of the Hanging of the "Butcher of Bagadad
I have posted the link here of the actual hanging of Hussein. It doesn't stop just before he falls through the trap door. It shows his broken neck and dead body afterwards.
Some people may be squeamish, and others may think that it is not proper to watch a person die. However, in certain cases, it is my opinion that it is therapeutic to see one's enemy get what they deserve. Let me give you two examples of what I am speaking about.It says in the Torah, parashat Beshalach 14:30
"...And Israel saw
the Egyptians dead
on the sea shore. (31)
Israel saw the great hand that HASHEM inflicted upon Egypt; and the people revered HASHEM, and they had faith in HASHEM and in Moses, His servant.15:1
Then Moses and the Children of israel chose to sing this song to Hashem, and they said the following: I shall sing to Hashem for He is exalted above the arrogant, having hurled the horses with its rider into the sea. .....
Here, we see the Children of Israel, former slaves to Pharoah, finally see justice meted out on their oppressors. It was therapeutic for them to see the bodies of the Egyptian soldiers washed up on the sea shore. Justice was done, and they merited seeing this with their own eyes.
Another more recent example, is my father, a survivor of the Holocaust. The Nazis came into Poland where my grandfather (his father) owned a factory that made material (textiles) and handkerchiefs. The Nazis threw my grandfather, grandmother, my father and his brother, out of their home. With only what they could carry, they forced them into a ghetto and caged them there, where starvation and death awaited them. To make a long story short, my father saw the Nazis come for his father, to take him away for 'questioning', where they beat him to death. Working as a slave laborer in the ghetto, he and his mother and brother were slowly starving to death. They witnessed beatings, hangings, torture, and genocide. Towards the end of the war, he himself was forced to board a train to Auschwitz, but escaped the trip by hiding under a pile of coal. I am sharing this with you because years later, when speaking with my father about this period of his life (he would not talk about the holocaust for years and years, it was too painful for him), he said that if he could have had seen the Nazis DEAD, he would have felt some closure for the suffering he went through. (not see them being killed per se, but seeing the bodies after the fact) Just to see, view, the dead bodies of these monsters who murdered his father, and most of his extended family, the monster-people who stole his childhood, his community, his world.
My father, and the many holocaust survivors, wanted to see JUSTICE. And the fact that many of these, no, most of these monsters escaped justice and were living a comfortable life in Argentina, or under another name in Germany, left a gaping wound in these survivors. They never got the 'closure' of seeing their enemies, these monsters, get what they deserved. And so, with this, I offer anyone who would want to see the complete video of the hanging of this monster, Saddam Hussein, the chance to see justice done. Saddam Hussein who tried to make a genocide against his own citizens, the Kurds. This man, 'SoDamn Insane' (Saddam Huseein)who sent dozens of missiles that slammed into Israeli cities in the first Gulf War, even though Israel had no dealings or contact with Iraq, and therefore no motive for Saddam Hussein to want to destroy Israel and the Jewish People here, except for his vile and evil hatred. This man, Saddam Hussein who paid at least $25,000 dollars to Arab families who had children that would volunteer to become suicide bombers, and murder as many Jews as possible here in Israel. I say, "Good riddance!. It's about time we saw some justice for the innocent victims of this evil, evil man". Watch video
