Israel supports the decision of the Iraqi court in the sentencing of former dictator of Iraq Saddam Hussein to death by hanging.
Sources in the Israeli Foreign Ministry said, “Israel has faith in the independence of the Iraqi court. The court punished not only those who threatened the peace and security of Israel, but also those who attacked its [Iraqi] citizens. Hussein aided suicide terrorists against Israel. He also used violence against the world, attacked his neighbors, supported terror and weakened the perseverance of peace and stability in the entire Middle East.”
Political sources say that the decision of the court strengthens the moderates in Iraq specifically and in the entire Middle East as a whole. Sources in Israel estimate, that the decision will have no effect on Israel and Palestinian terrorism.
