Saddam’s Victims, Continued


From Rita Katz, talking to NRO in 2003 :

My father was tried in one of Saddam’s kangaroo courts and hanged in broad daylight, in Baghdad’s central square, to the cheers of a half a million spectators. My family and I we were held under house arrest in a small hut in Baghdad, and we suffered additional abuse and other tragedies, until my mother was finally able to orchestrate a daring escape. My father was hanged in 1969, and we escaped two years later, through Iran, to Israel.
