Bye 2006, Bye Saddam

Lots of things happened in 2006.

Personally, I started my blog site. What a way to end the year, too. It's Aidil Adha tomorrow, when my parents wont be around as they're performing the haj.

Another sad story to close the year - Saddam Hussein was hang today.

It was reported that he was clutching a Quran and refusing a hood before being executed by vengeful countrymen. It was quoted, before the rope was put around his neck, Saddam shouted: "God is great. The nation will be victorious and Palestine is Arab."

In a farewell message to Iraqis posted Wednesday on the Internet, Saddam said he was giving his life for his country as part of the struggle against the U.S. "Here, I offer my soul to God as a sacrifice, and if he wants, he will send it to heaven with the martyrs," he said.

"The president, the leader Saddam Hussein is a martyr and God will put him along with other martyrs. Do not be sad nor complain because he has died the death of a holy warrior," said Sheik Yahya al-Attawi, a cleric at the Saddam Big Mosque.
