More indication that radical Islamic views are quite widespread in the Islamic world: “Several Islamist Web sites and message boards are encouraging visitors to send holiday greetings to Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden.” (So says CNN. Thanks to LGF.)
The report says that “the Web sites, which reflect radical Islamic opinion, opened their message forums for Eid greetings and urged people to send messages to the former Iraqi president and the al Qaeda leader. An Islamist is a supporter of Islamic political rule.
“On one site a message addresses Saddam as a ‘great leader’ who refused to be humiliated by the Americans. ‘Brave Saddam Hussein, God protect him and give him victory over the Jews and those who worship the cross,’ the message states. . . .
“Some messages on this and other Web sites consisted of poems written to bin Laden asking God to help them die for Islam by joining jihad, the fight against non-Muslims.”
