A friend (who is both Arab and Muslim) notes that at this morning’s trial, some of the defendants were ostentatiously holding Korans and Saddam was reciting quotes from Muhammad. In other words, they were attempting to appeal to the Arab/Muslim masses.
Saddam’s daughter appeared on an Arab TV station, saying that she is proud of her father, calling him: “This Defiant Lion.”
No family members of Saddam’s victims appeared on the station. (Have any appeared in the U.S. media?)
