Saddam Hussein sentenced to death by hanging
POSTED: 1102 GMT (1902 HKT), November 5, 2006

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- The Iraqi High Tribunal on Sunday sentenced a combative Saddam Hussein and two other defendants to death by hanging for a brutal crackdown in 1982 in the Shiite town of Dujail.

Iraqis under a curfew in Baghdad spilled out into the streets in celebration of the verdict, news footage showed. But protests were held in Saddam Hussein's hometown.

Along with Hussein, his half-brother and former intelligence chief Barzan Hassan, and former chief judge of the Revolutionary Court Awad Bandar also got death. (Watch Hussein shout protests during sentencing -- 4:05 )

Taha Yassin Ramadan, a former vice president of Iraq, was sentenced to life in prison.

"The verdict was predetermined and has nothing to do with court proceedings," Ramadan said.

Mohammed Azzawi Ali, a former Dujail Baath Party official, was acquitted because of insufficient evidence against him, the court said.

The three others -- Abdullah Kadhem Ruwaid, Ali Dayem Ali, and Misher Abdullah Ruwaid -- were sentenced to 15 years each.

There will be automatic appeals for the four who were sentenced to death and life in prison.

The 50-minute session was dramatic. Hussein entered with a Quran in hand, as he had in the past. He began screaming Allahu Akhbar -- God is great -- as the verdict and sentencing was read.

He also argued with the chief judge and shouted, "Damn you and your court."

As the judge ordered him taken away, Hussein said, "Don't push me, boy."

Bandar also screamed Allahu Akhbar as he was taken out of court.

Defense attorney Ramsey Clark, a former U.S. attorney general, was ousted by judges early in the session. The court asked him to leave, saying he had come here from the United States to mock the Iraqi people and the court.

Another defense attorney, Ziad al-Najdawi, angrily told reporters as he left the courtroom, "That's the American justice."

The Dujail case stemmed from a crackdown against townspeople after a 1982 assassination attempt against Hussein in the town. The crackdown involved the ordered executions of 148 males.

Before Sunday's verdicts were announced, a curfew was imposed in Baghdad and two provinces -- Diyala and Salaheddin -- with large Sunni populations ahead of expected violence.

Predominantly Shiite and Kurdish provinces were not under curfew.

About 2,000 protesters in Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit on Sunday defied the curfew and demonstrated in support of the former leader.

A witness said the protesters carried posters of the former president and were shooting into the air.

The numbers of demonstrators grew after the sentence was announced. A complete movement ban -- both people and vehicles -- was imposed on Sunday in the provinces of Baghdad, Diyala and Salaheddin -- where Tikrit is located.

The Baghdad International Airport also shut down until further notice.

This verdicts come nearly three years after U.S.-led forces plucked Hussein out of hiding and just a few days before U.S. midterm elections, with the Iraqi war at center stage.

The U.S. ambassador in Iraq praised the verdicts and sentencing as "an important milestone for Iraq."

"Although the Iraqis may face difficult days in the coming weeks, closing the book on Saddam and his regime is an opportunity to unite and build a better future," Zalmay Khalilzad said in a statement issued shortly after the verdicts were rendered.

Outbursts and walkouts
The Dujail trial, the first in what is a series of proceedings against former regime officials, began October 19, 2005, and ended July 27. It was a turbulent courtroom battle witnessed on TV across the globe.

It was marked by outbursts and harangues from Hussein and his co-defendants, lawyer walkouts, much-criticized court actions, and complaints from lawyers about poor security. There were grave concerns about security for legal teams and their families; three defense lawyers were killed.

2Cor.3:18) But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.
If your face is truly unveiled you will accept what happened at the cross and see by faith the finished work of Christ in the mirror. Only in this walk of faith are we “transformed into the same image”.

I wonder what this means and l wonder when the sentence will be carried out.

Now l remember.


Quote

As Raouf Abdul Rahman, the chief judge spoke, Saddam, hands clenched behind his back, almost succeeded in drowning him out, yelling the Muslim battle cry of "Allahu Akbar!" (God is Greatest) and "Long Live Iraq!". "

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one.
John 10: 27-30

The following is what is on the homepage of my website for the past several years. The bible code was found before the war. I have been patiently waiting its fulfillment, unsure if it was (in full) fulfilled by the death of Saddams sons --- but reasonably confident that it should include Saddam himself since he is the focus of much of the rest of the code.



Mene-Tekel Bible-Code

Bible Prophecy Encoded
about Saddam

In part, it reads...

"The One putting him to death
is the One that encrypted the words."


"Is it the hand of Jehovah?
He Himself goes to war against Babylon (Iraq).
He will put him to death!"



http://www.bible-cod...ylon-Saddam.htm

This code is a contrast between Saddam (a type of antichrist) and Jesus Christ. Unless one understands this one will not understand the code.

The code also hinted that the execution would be by hanging --- like Haman of old --- and like Christ in the sense that "cursed is he that hangeth upon a tree."

http://www.bible-cod...ylon-Saddam.htm

(Note: Iraq is ancient Babylon and Saddam likened himself to the ancient king of Babylon)
A small part of the hand (that wrote on the wall in Babylon) bible code reads:

"Jehovah?

Is it the hand of Jehovah?
He Himself goes to war. He put him to death!

Jehovah goes to war against her (i.e., 'Babylon'),
and the arrogant one! (or, 'succulent one')

Jehovah goes to war against her,
and the rebellious one!

Jehovah goes to war against her,
and the one being removed!"


There is no joy in his death, but there is a satisfaction that every detail of this astounding code has come to pass ---- and there were dozens of paticulars to this prophecy, --- death by hanging being but one.

It also looks like he will hang at the time expected, that is, 3.5 years after the death of his son, which was 3.5 years after the writing-on-the-wall mene-code was found. (Feb. 4, 2000, which was just after the world-wide millennial celebrations ---Belshazzar's party if you would!)

This is what I wrote several years ago about Saddam's sons. I was therefore expecting that the death of Saddam would likely occur between Dec. 2006 to Feb. 2007, with Jan. 28, 2007 as my first choice and Dec. 29, 2006 my second choice, being 1260 to the death of Saddam's sons, and 1260 more (or 1290, Dan. 12) to Saddam's death in his 70th year. (1260 + 1260/1290 days are seven years on the 360 calendar.) This numeric pattern, based in the book of Revelation, has to do with the fall of Babylon and her king and the antichrist system. Remember that Babylon fell the night the hand first wrote on the wall back in 539 BC, and that very night the king of Babylon was slain. The book of Revelation much alludes to this event.

The following is a quote from my website. It was written about 3.5 years ago.

http://www.bible-cod...on-Saddam-3.htm

===========
"For He is risen and is taking revenge!"

[They (Saddam's sons) died exactly 1260 plus 3½ days from the day when this very bible code first began to be revealed. These numbers are symbolic of Christ's 3½-year ministry (1260 days), and 3(½) days in tomb. When Jesus rose, his enemies fell! These same timeframes also have to do with the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11, (who, in turn, are patterned ultimately after Christ). Saddam's sons are the very antithesis of the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11. (Just as the Twin Towers were.) Just like the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11, Saddam's "two" sons also "spread terror;" and when they were "killed," likewise the "whole world" "gazed upon their dead bodies"; moreover, they likewise did this for "3½-days"! And this 3½-days followed upon "1260 days" of "prophesying," (the same period that the Spirit of Christ by this "oracle"/code prophesied, starting back in Feb. 4, 2000)! And what is more, the world "rejoiced at their deaths." Moreover, in 'Babylon' (Iraq) there was even "the giving of gifts"---just as it again says in Revelation 11!

In contrast to the godly Two Witnesses, the code pronounced the deaths of Saddam's two sons as final. "Mene, mene: Their days were numbers! The code elsewhere refers to their deaths as "warning signs" to all others that would wickedly walk in their footsteps of rebellion.

As for this being Saddam's 70th year of his life, it is interesting that Jeremiah the prophet declared:
"And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon," (Jer. 25:12, cf., Daniel 9).

And it's the hand of God...

Does it tie in with the kingdoms of this world (Babylon) falling with Saddam? Or is it simply a symbolic warning? God warns first...but he's warned and warned and warned. When is the final warning?

What else should we bring into play here? Or better said, who else... :ph34r:

That's a good question Miki. I can only say that the signs that God are giving are increasingly more clear and powerful... and this may be indicative of how close we are to the final end and fulfillment of all things about which these events are only symbolic.
