Well! If Hosni Mubarak says it....

Hide your heads in shame everyone: Hosni Mubarak, the president of Egypt, says that images of Saddam Hussein's execution were "revolting and barbaric."

Really? I have noticed over the last couple of days that the political left and the Muslim world have worked themselves up into a bit of a tizzy over the conditions and timing of Saddam's execution.

The last time I checked, hanging has historically been a pretty common way to execute people. I think it is still an accepted method in a couple of U.S. states, such as Washington. Of course, Saddam was taunted by his executioners moments before his demise. Was that "revolting and barbaric"? Let us never forget why Saddam was hanged in the first place.

Do you want to see "revolting and barbaric"? Here is revolting and barbaric:

Here is "revolting and barbaric":

Here is "revolting and barbaric"; copy and paste the following link to your browser:

In case you don't have the stomach to watch, or you can't get the video to work, here is a description of the short video given by the website: Executing dissidents: 100 grs of explosives put into the shirt front pocket. The wires are attached to a car battery and...

I think what Hosni Mubarak should do is sit down, take a breath, and have a nice hot cup of shut the f*** up. I also see in the article that Mubarak brought up this already-tired Muslim bromide about how terrible it is that Saddam Hussein was executed at the start of the Muslim holiday of Eid, saying,
"People are executed all over the world, but what happened in Baghdad on the first day of Eid al-Adha was unthinkable. I didn’t believe it was happening. Why did they have to hurry? Why hang him when people are reciting their holiday prayers?"
Now now, let's have the whole story; apparently during Eid, people aren't just praying, they are also slaughtering animals like it's going out of style. You wanna see "revolting and barbaric" again? Click here (if you have the stomach) to see what was going on as many Muslims were complaining about Saddam being executed during their holiday. I will post my favorite photo from the bunch:

How I wish that we could just keep out of that part of the world all together. The problem is that even if we aren't interested in the Islamic world, the Islamic world is always interested in us. There are millions upon millions of Muslims out there who will not rest until we all submit to Allah (the very definition of Islam). If we don't submit, they would do the very same thing to us that that guy is doing to the camel.


Good Day to You, Sir
