Saddam Hussein sparks outrage in Lebanese Restaurant

Share:

lebanese restaurant saddam husseinA Lebanese restaurant owner has placed a giant poster of Saddam Hussein in his eatery’s window.

Ayyad Al-Hamdan, 43, the owner of This Is It in Harrow, north-west London, has sparked outrage among local residents by placing the picture of the ruthless Iraqi dictator on display.

He has refused a request from council chiefs to remove the ‘offensive’ photograph, saying it is a political protest. Several people have left angry comments about it on the TripAdvisor review website.

One Harrow resident said: ‘We live in a society where a cabbie can be told not to fly the St George flag in his car or people can’t display them in offices. And yet this guy gets away with posting a picture of Saddam Hussain in his window. It is utterly barmy.’

Another added: ‘I will never go there again as they now have a huge poster of a smiling Saddam Hussein in their window. Are they completely mad or just total morons? I think this place should be boycotted. How dare they?’

Harrow Council leader Susan Hall went to the restaurant with an enforcement officer and asked the owner to take the picture down. She said the owner was ‘polite but defiant’ and said it was not a council issue and it was his freedom to display the picture.

‘Public images of dictators be it Saddam Hussain, Hitler, or the leader of North Korea for that matter, have no place in Harrow. This is a restaurant promotion that leaves a nasty taste in my mouth.’

But defiant restaurant owner Mr Al-Hamdan vowed to fight efforts to remove the offending photo.

He said: ‘The council and police have come here and asked me to take it out of the window and put it in the restaurant. But I won’t, there is no point. I want people to see it. I told them I will take it to the court.’

Mr Al-Hamdan admitted angry passers-by had stormed into the restaurant and hurled abuse at him – and that he risked offending the families of British soldiers killed in the Gulf wars.

However, he added: ‘If people are upset about it then they can come and speak to me.

‘Go back to 1990. The British soldiers when they tried to kick Saddam from Kuwait, think about how may soldiers they lost there, how many went mad. Now we in Kuwait need help again.’

The asylum seeker, who said he came to Britain in 1997, explained that he forked out £60 for the print of the tyrant in protest over the Government in his native country.

He said: ‘The British and Americans said that Saddam was a dictator, and they removed him to give freedom for the people of Iraq.

‘But now we in Kuwait are dying slowly. No-one cares about them because the British government has a good relationship with the Kuwait government.’

      Of course a Iranian wouldn’t like saddam.

      1. Don’t try and turn this into a Sunni/Shiite thing. Saddam was as ruthless as they come. Speak to the Iraqis that fled and now live in Australia. Not one I have spoken had anything nice to say about him. His sons were just bad.

          You mean his was like Assad. Iran did not liberate Iraq. The U.S. liberated Iraq. The Iraqi Shias and Iran benefited the most from this. Now it’s Syria’s turn.

      but putting Iranian flag like you have is okay for you? there shouldn’t Saddam, Khomeini or iranian or syrian flags period. not because i am anti freedom, its not cause any problems since most of the lebanese are pro somebody except Lebanon lol.

        Of course its okay for me since i’m iranian,but you don’t see me having a banner of khamenei or hassan nasrallah,killers are killers,if you start displaying them in public then your just asking for it.

          I think we need to admit, Shirdel, that the name of the business really says it all – aside from whatever he thinks is happening in Kuwait. The guy managed to escape the Middle East and set up a business in a country that allows him to post any silly crap he wants to in his shop – even if potential customers shy away from it.
          He landed on firm soil, and exclaimed: ‘THIS IS IT’. :-))

      But here the guy defends his rights and no-one made him take it down yet. The best ‘protest’ would be a large picture of one of the comelier ‘Femmes’ across the street in a British Pub window. :-))

      Good point Barabie, but atleast there have not been any crazy riots you have to give them credit they are upset but not hysterical. I think it’s a good example of respecting this guys opinion he hasn’t put up a cowerdly graffiti on a public structure it’s his property and he’s backing himself. I don’t agree with him but I can see his motive.

      1. barabie Avatar

        True there r no riots but then again you can’t compare a pic of Saddam to videos or cartoons mocking the greatest person in history (according to Ghandi etc). Of course i disagree with Ghandi et al coz i think i am the greatest person in history 😛
        This is where u reply “of course u r barabie”. 🙂

    But displaying Khomeini pictures everywhere in the South along with Iranian flags is permitted under what law then? If Saddam was alive we would not have much of Al Qaada in Iraq.. Or the presence of the ayatollahs.. He was the lesser evil in my opinion..

        Really? Lets compare shall we? When did saddam torture and kill children? Iraq had the highest literacy rate amongst all Arab countries under saddam. Women had EQUAL rights under saddam. There WAS a Christian community that was thriving under saddam.
        Can u say the same for ur “inoffensive baby”??

            Sorry for u but saddam didn’t have that kind of nerve agent. The only ones who possessed that chemical at the time were Iranians. Yes u should do some real research instead of using mainstream media.

            “US Army War College: NO PROOF SADDAM GASSED THE KURDS!

            Memo to Jess Helms from InfoTimes. Note excerpt from US Army War College report that no evidence exists to support US claims that Iraq used gas on the Kurds.”

            This is like saying Hezbollah didn’t kill Hariri
            Sadam INVITED journalists to go to Kurdistan to document the killings.
            It wasn’t the US that claimed that Sadam gazed these people
            It was you hero Sadam who did!

            “. In March 1988, the Kurds at Halabjah were bombarded with chemical weapons, producing a great many deaths. Photographs of them Kurdish victims were widely disseminated in the international media. Iraq was blamed for the Halabjah attack, even though it was subsequently brought out that Iran too had used chemicals in this operation, and it seemed likely that it was the Iranian bombardment that had actually killed the Kurds.”

            These days kids can have even bigger or more techie weapons that everyone wants, go on-line, and single-handedly annihilate a world and the worst monsters imaginable – or reboot if they make an error – but still ‘feel’ the ‘heat of battle’.
            Mind you, there ARE adult ‘My Little Pony’ clubs too. It all depends on which way you feel is the best way to express yourself … at the time you are being shot at. 😉

            I have watched a couple of those cross-fit exhaustion shows … the looks on some faces, and the killer ‘moves’ they use and can express, almost tell you which ones in the crowd would not realize, or care, how much damage they could do to a human body if they used it. So I still prefer to watch belly-dancing. Not as many frowning faces either. 😉

          Highest literacy rate maybe, but also the highest brains flight of all Arabs.
          Christian community living under the sword (just like Christians in Syria)
          Your churches are safe as long as you bow your head to me before bowing it to your god…
          As for the most ridiculous of all statements: when did Sadam torture or kill children… Proves how blind you are and gives you an extra hypocrite star to add to your collection…

            Stop brandishing Abeer as if she was the only rape victim in the world. More importantly the actions of a few does not reflect the intentions of 300 millions. Before and after Abeer your Sunni leaders from morocco to the Philippines raped and killed MILLIONS of Abeer yet you completely refuse to see this and point only to one example because it was perpetrated by a sick sob that happened to be American. Your argument is not only invalid, it proves again and again what a hypocrite you are and how well aljazeera brainwashed you.

            Methods of torture used by Hussein’s regime included assault with brass knuckles and wooden bludgeons; electric shocks to the genitalia; scorched metal rods being forced into body orifices; the crushing of toes and removal of toenails; burning off limbs; lowering prisoners into vats of acid; poisoning with thallium; raping women in front of their family members; burning with cigarette butts; the crushing of bones; the amputation of ears, limbs, and tongues; and the gouging of eyes.[

            Contrary to yours truly I’m the first to recognize that historically and recently we did A LOT of things wrong. That is the power of the US and its people is that they realize their wrong in a matter of months and years and fix it – contrary to the rest of the world who keeps justifying and denying past and present mistakes. We did wrong by nuclear bombing Japan. We never did it again nor do we even think about doing it again. We did wrong in Vietnam and tons of other places, we were fighting a war much bigger than your brainwashed mind can ever imagine, much bigger than WWII. We won, at a high moral cost, like any war. And then we started another war, this time against despots and mass murders around the world and one by one we’re getting rid of them one way or another, and ALL will fall, be sure of that.
            Are we a nation of good? we support good for sure, it’s in our society, a just society based on the rule of law and not the rule of some camel riders or fish eaters who prophesized millennia ago.
            So yeah, allow me to say, we are a much better society than the rest of the world and proof of it is that we rank #1, it’s no coincidence that the USA among the other big ex-colonies is #1, it’s because we have the best model. Not a perfect one, but certainly the best.
            So you keep looking up for people like Saddam and his sons and I’ll look up to Obama and his family.

            As for doing it again, try telling that to the Iraqis when u used depleted uranium on their children. Try telling how their land will b contaminated for years to come. Now try telling us that u have admitted using it and are paying compensation for that vile action.
            Try telling the Vietnamese you won’t use napalm on unarmed civilians.
            Try telling the afghans u didn’t use depleted uranium and white phosphorous on their children. Of all countries you are truly one of the worst and also huge liars.

            A little bit of depleted uranium will remind you not to mess with the US for (a half-) life. Attack your own civilians, that’s you specialty. Dare and target ours and your cities will smell phosphor, which is an upgrade to how your cities smell.

            This is called advanced awareness
            There were 40 known cases out of 100k but as people started knowing better and recognizing that this is cancer rather than sorcery or a toothache the real numbers started appearing. The Iraqi were not immune to cancer before the “yanks” arrived as the likes of you love to portray. They just didn’t count right.
            Me and my loved ones have experienced worse if that makes you sleep better at night, not looking for anyone’s pity. I personally survived many wars and seen atrocities that you little baby have read about in articles years later. One thing I learned, never fight a battle you can’t win and if you do, don’t come crying that you lost. What Sadam fantasizes of doing to the US is a million times worse than what the US did in Iraq. The US won and you losers better stop whining.

            “. In March 1988, the Kurds at Halabjah were bombarded with chemical weapons, producing a great many deaths. Photographs of them Kurdish victims were widely disseminated in the international media. Iraq was blamed for the Halabjah attack, even though it was subsequently brought out that Iran too had used chemicals in this operation, and it seemed likely that it was the Iranian bombardment that had actually killed the Kurds.”

            Stop brandishing Abeer as if she was the only rape victim in the world. More importantly the actions of a few does not reflect the intentions of 300 millions. Before and after Abeer your Sunni leaders from morocco to the Philippines raped and killed MILLIONS of Abeer yet you completely refuse to see this and point only to one example because it was perpetrated by a sick sob that happened to be American. Your argument is not only invalid, it proves again and again what a hypocrite you are and how well aljazeera brainwashed you.

            Why would I quote numbers from wars of that time period?
            If you think the Japanese War is ‘ancient’, well … sorry. But it’s the same time period as WWII. Why quote ANYTHING from that time?

        “Shame even alqaeda”
        But yet Rumsfeld has been photographed hugging and kissing saddam. So Americans will work with and supply weapons to people worse than alqaeda? Speaks volumes about the Americans doesn’t it! Rhetorical question

        “Bashar is only an inoffensive baby” and what he his father did to Lebanon are called baby offense? you people are traitors and scums.. i am tired of hearing that the Syrian regime was and still friendly to Lebanon. Israel has less damage to Lebanon compared to the Assad regime. what about the lebanese who were tortured and dragged to syrian jails and now we’re told they are no signs of them..what Assad did and his father was no less than what Saddam did? what Iranian regime done to their own people for almost 2 years is more brutal than what Saddam did. It really amazes me hearing people defending this scum as he was a saint to Lebanon? I guess killing lebanese leaders and others means nothing to you because they don’t fit into your political agenda.. inoffensive boy my azzzzzzzzz

            I have serious problems with assholes supporting Assad against Lebanon. I have serious problems with people accusing us of being israeli spies while we are merely seeking peace in Lebanon and in trying not to get them involved in other countries war? i have serious problems with people who are trying to force us to believe that Bashar is God’s gift to earth while they forgot what he did to Lebanon. yes i have serious problems allright.. where did you graduate from Iranian mullahs school of Law?

            Dude, stop ridiculing yourself and jamhour. Everyone knows it’s a shitty school but now you proved that it teaches close to nothing to its students. Where in hell did I say that Assad is a gift from the sky.
            Read English!
            I said bashar looks like a baby compared to Sadam and his atrocities. It means that bashar is a monster, but a baby monster compared to Sadam which you seem to mysteriously prefer simply because he killed hundred of thousand if not millions of people but that’s ok if they’re not Lebanese…

            First Dude I never heard of Jamhour in the first place. i didn’t graduate from any lebanese College. so stop trying to show your above me. Bashar is a butcher and not a baby. its baby minds like you who thinks of him this way. trying to make him look like nothing of the butcher he has been and downplaying all his crazy and thug mentality. I am not saying either that Saddam was a saint. But let’s be honest Saddam would been better staying put instead of Al Qaada and Iran now. Saddam would have help the west get rid of them while we also push him toward submission. look what happened to Iraq. Many americans and iraqis lost their lives and for what? to be handed in 3 ways one to Iran, another to Kurds and the third to Al Qaada. Bashar continued his father path instead of mend relations in lebanon. He would been much loved if he had done so.. he would have helped create a strong goverment instead of thug militia like hezbollah. who pretends to be protecting Lebanon from Israel. and who is Protecting Lebanese from Hezbollah and Syria and Iran? if you think i graduated from Jamhour then you must have came from Bab AL Tabenah.

            get your meds and take a couple of English classes you need them wherever you graduated from.
            I never said bashar is not what you’re calling him, I just told you to tone down your love and appreciation of Saddam because he is 10 times worse than bashar.

    ‘But now we in Kuwait are dying slowly. No-one cares about them because the British government has a good relationship with the Kuwait government.’ I think by ‘dying’ he means the spirit … and business in general. The Dictator ‘EMIR’ there is not exactly running around shooting the citizens.
    Sort of sounds like El Supremo ….
    ————-
    “We are very lucky that we are financially very comfortable,” said Maha al-Baghli, president of the association of business and professional women in Kuwait and an advocate for female entrepreneurs.
    “On the other hand, it is not encouraging entrepreneurs and hard work,” Baghli told Reuters.

    Kuwait’s parliament is the oldest and most influential in the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council. The assembly can block legislation and interrogate ministers, who are selected by a prime minister chosen by the Emir.
    Relations between the elected assembly and government have often been fraught, however, with six parliamentary elections since 2006 and more than ten different governments, resulting more in political stasis than dynamism.
    In addition, members of the ruling family tend to hold the top government posts, while 84-year-old Sheikh Sabah has the final say on state affairs.

    One thing that infuriates young Kuwaitis on a day-to-day level is how much easier it can be to do business in other Gulf countries – even next door in deeply conservative Saudi Arabia.
    When Shawaf al-Shawaf wanted to register his kitchen tools business in Kuwait, the bureaucratic process took six months. In Saudi Arabia, it took him less than a day.
    “If I need to go to a government department, I cancel my whole day because I know I will spend the whole time there,” said Shawaf, 24, who set up his company Dolsten in late 2012.

    None of this is a fault of Saddam OR Britain NOW.
