Western Australia’s Ghali Hassan has his say on Saddam’s trial:
Saddam trial is a theatre. It is a Hollywood show to divert attention from the destruction of Iraq and the massive war crimes committed against the Iraqi people. Like the invasion, the “tribunal” is illegal and has no legitimacy in occupied Iraq. There is overwhelming prima facie evidence to convict George W. Bush and Tony Blair of crimes against humanity than to convict Saddam Hussein. Under the U.N Convention, Bush and Blair are guilty of crimes against humanity, torture, and guilty of wanton destruction of the Iraqi state.
The reality is; the U.S. and its allies are not interested in a trial per se; they are interested in the humiliation of all Arabs.
And so on, including condemnation of “Zionism and imperialism”, praise for Saddam’s “best education system and the best health care services in the Middle East”, and declarations of Saddam’s innocence (with this comical qualifier: “even if Saddam committed crimes, the crimes were committed with the full complicity and support of Western leaders, and Western media”). You’ll find Hassan at all the usual progressive online fever pods, despite his screaming anti-Semitism and frantic conspiracy theories:
Instead of saying; it is too early to say who is responsible for the 7/7 London bombing, Tony Blair immediately accused Muslims and Islam of the crimes. No evidence, no names and no documentation were provided to support his accusations.
People know full well that the overwhelming majority of Muslims stand four square with every other community in Britain. We were proud of your contribution to Britain before last Thursday. We remain proud of it today. Fanaticism is not a state of religion but a state of mind. We will work with you to make the moderate and true voice of Islam heard as it should be.
Speaking of “no evidence, no names and no documentation being provided to support his accusations”, check Hassan’s theory about the London attacks:
The 7/7 London bombing was next to impossible to conduct in the middle of high security without the intelligence and coordination of important people in Britain. Like the 9/11 attacks, the 7/7 London bombing remains a mystery …
Here’s another mystery:
