JUSTICE DAY

The Age on Saddam Hussein’s judicial lengthening:

If justice was done, it wasn’t seen to be done.

Really? Could’ve sworn I saw justice being done right here. More from the Age:

The last thing the US needs is another anti-American Middle East martyr. But that was what we got yesterday.

Sydney’s Iraqis don’t seem too enraged:

Sydney’s Iraqi community erupted into celebration in Auburn the moment news broke that Saddam Hussein was dead.

Taxi driver Ayad Laftah, 37, of Yagoona, whose father and brother were killed under the dictator’s regime, burst into cries of “Allah Akbar”, waved his arms and threw sweets into the air.

Holding back tears he cried: “At last, justice for my father and brother.”

Car horns rang out across Auburn as news spread.

“I had to grow up without my father because, one day in 1981, he just disappeared,” Mr Laftah said. “The same with my brother, Jewaad. He was just 21 ... To hear Saddam has been executed makes this the happiest day of my life.”

Mr Laftah has been in Australia for 16 years after arriving as a refugee.

Fairfield Heights pharmacist Abdul Hamady described yesterday as “justice day”.
