Arab and Israeli Press on Saddam Hussein Execution

The BBC has a roundup of Arab and Israeli commentators' views on the execution of Saddam Hussein. To me, one of the more interesting facts is that "Saddam was slaughtered on the day lambs are slaughtered," according to Hani Naqshabandi and referring to holiday of Eid al-Adha. Nahum Barnea, an Israeli, correctly notes: "Say what they like about him, he met his death with dignity, with an erect head, without asking for mercy." You can read the rest here.
