Saddam's Thoughts On The "Palestinian Issue" Just to highlight how "out of touch" the West is, I'm reproducing a certain speech from one Saddam Hussein. I know I've posted it before on this Forum, but it's VERY RELEVANT now! From; https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=10217&highlight=Saddam “The Palestinian Issue Q. What are your concepts as regards the question of peace between the Arabs and Israel? Saddam: “The war of June 5, 1967, had been an effect not a cause. The problem therefore, started before that date. What then is the problem? Here, we would ask the whole world to answer this question, clearly. We demand that the answer be related to right human principles in general and the right of nations to self-determination. The root of the problem, we believe, lies in the fact that there were people living securely on their land, a people coexisting with their different religions. These people were driven out of their homeland and were replaced by others emigrating from Japan, the U.S.A., the Soviet Union and every other place. They come and gather in this land at the expense of a people who were rendered homeless and living in the open air. This is the root of the problem. This is the essence of the basic political differences between what is being posed by Iraq and by many others. Arabs or non-Arabs. Hence, the 5th of June and 6th of October, are effects not causes. Why? Let us find out. Solutions could be reached if the causes are pointed out courageously and impartially. We therefore believe that all subsequent plans are not dealing with the causes. Rather, effects associated with causes are dealt with, while the causes themselves are being neglected. In consequence, all these solutions will certainly be temporary, and will continue to be inconsistent with justice and fairness.” No wonder he'll never see trial, imagine the Admin having to deal with an intellect like Saddam's! Geez, they would be overwhelmed..
