Life Under Saddam Was Good for Us

An Iraqi Christian tells those gathered something that is hard for us in the United States, mostly Christians ourselves, to hear.

Life in Iraq under Saddam was better for them, for the Iraqi Christians.  Much better.

I don’t know why Saddam chose not to oppress Christians.  But he didn’t.

The implications of the statement of my fellow Christian born in Iraq are sobering.

“He was a murderous dictator, with nothing good to say about him, but life under Saddam was good for us.”

That’s what the man said.

And he is not the first one I’ve heard that from.

“Saddam was good for us.”
