A Palestinian city showed its gratitude to Saddam Hussein by unveiling a memorial and naming a street after the late Iraqi dictator, the Middle East Media Research Institute reported on Friday.
Rafi’ Rawajba, district governor of the West Bank city of Qalqilya, presented the memorial depicting an image of Saddam, who was known for supporting the Palestinians, saluting in military garb sandwiched between the Iraqi and Palestinian flags. The other side of the monument shows Saddam in a suit wielding a rifle.
The memorial also has the slogan “Saddam Hussein – The Master of the Martyrs in Our Age,” inscribed on it and the phrase “Arab Palestine from the River to the Sea,” which Saddam often repeated.
The ceremony was attended by local officials and Rakad Salem, the secretary-general of the Arab Liberation Front (ALF), a Palestinian faction that had ties with Saddam’s Ba’ath party in Iraq.
