The WHOLE VIDEO - The Hanging of Saddam Hussein

Warning: May be offensive to some viewers.
FULL VIDEO 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: (warning: may be offensive to some viewers).

    This version is better in that it shows the monster falling, but it is marred by a most incompetent filmer. It still leaves questions that a more professional pressman could have answered with a steadier hand. Of course, I can't just go over there and complain, if I want to live.

    Dearest Tamar,

    Thanks so much for posting the full video, but even more for sharing your father's experience !! I have a deep and abiding respect for the survivors that words can not describe!!!
    I weep for your father and his family and for the millions of other victims of the Nazi monsters of WWII. I agree, the victims have a right (and a need) to see these animals destroyed !! That's what I didn't like about the way the Saddam hanging was done. It should have been in public view for his victims to witness, and not in secret, but thanks to video and cameras, the victims can view, and hopefully find some closure. Ironically, I was just watching the successful 1982 destruction of Saddam's nuclear reactor, by the eight brave Israeli fighter pilots, on the military channel, with my husband, only a few minutes ago !! Saddam was threatening to "wipe Israel off the map" at that time and Israel took out the reactor before his threats could become a reality. Now, another nut is making the same threats and attempting to become nuclear !! This one must be stopped too !! Iran must be dealt with before they become nuclear capable !! At a meeting of the US joint chiefs of staff, shortly following the successful strike, according to the documentary, Alexander Haig, was quoted as saying, "We should all drop to our knees and thank Israel for taking out the Iraqi reactor". Saddam was a madman, (who finally paid for his crimes), and so is this newest threat in Iran !! This is another good that I think can come from showing the video of Saddam's hanging, to serve as a warning to all those other madmen who would foolishly want to follow in his footsteps. Justice will ALWAYS come, either in this world or in the next !! My deepest respect to your father !! He DID see the defeat of his enemies, the murderers of his family, their defeat WAS his SURVIVAL !! He lived to tell the world what had been done to the Jews and others by the Nazis, and then he lived to father a daughter, who is so dedicated to the cause of the good and the ultimate defeat of the evil in this world, this is his legacy !!
    This is VICTORY, and it's SWEET !!

    All MY Love,
    Elaine

    P. S.

    I loved the "SoDamn Insane" line !!! I wish I'd thought of it first !!!

    I really didn't expect you to post the link Tamar. I hated the man and his deeds too yet I would have liked those around him at the time of his execution to have given him the kind of respect all of us should have for any soul going to his/her maker, be it Jewish, Christian, Muslim etc. They should have remained silent. After all he was a creation of G-d just like you and me. His tormentors are just as hateful as Saddam himself.

    Dear Tamar,

    You may not want to post this comment, and if not, I understand, but I just had to get this off my chest. In a comment to this article dated Jan. 03, by Anonymous, he/she remarked, and I quote, "I really didn't expect you to post the link Tamar. I hated the man and his deeds too yet I would have liked those around him at the time of his execution to have given him the kind of respect all of us should have for any soul going to his/her maker, be it Jewish, Christian, Muslim etc. They should have remained silent. After all he was a creation of G-d just like you and me. His tormentors are just as hateful as Saddam himself." To compare the two, Saddam and his executioners, and say that they are "just as hateful as Saddam himself", is to one, know nothing of the magnitude of Saddam's hidious and cruel deeds, and two, to call evil, good, and good, evil, a much to common practice nowadays !! When will we learn that this world is turned up-side-down and inside-out ??? Where have people gotten the idea that it is somehow righteous to defend evildoers, while ignoring, or worse, blaming the victims of these monsters ??? Are we to mourn when the wicked fall ?? This is NOT what the Tanakh teaches !! Somehow we have allowed ourselves to be doopted by the politically correct, tolerance teaching, left-wing, humanists, who have invented their own brand of ethics and morality, devoid of G-D or His Word, and based upon their own twisted and perverted ideas of right and wrong, according to their own standards and NOT determined by G-D and His Holy Word !!! This will only bring disaster !!! My answer to Anonymous is, read the Tanakh, from cover to cover, and then see if your opinion is based on G-D's Word, or on politically correct, man inspired, secular humanism. Where do we get-off thinking we can somehow be more tolerant, more merciful, more righteous than G-D ??? G-D's tolerance in Scripture has limits, His mercy, has limits, His Righteousness is above all and we cannot even come close !! When a monster, like Saddam, of his own free-will, goes beyond that which G-D's mercy and His tolerance can allow, then his destruction is a cause for the righteous to rejoice, because this evil person
    can no longer bring pain, suffering, and death to others. Do NOT waste your tears on a man like Saddam, instead, we should cry for ourselves, because this world is headed for insanity if we don't wake-up, and begin to cry out to G-D for guidance, instead of letting the world determine what our attitudes and opinions should be !!! Cry for the world, NOT for Saddam !! He's out-of-here and his fate is already determined, but our's is not !!!
