Saddam Hussein's execution worries Arab-American leaders in Westchester
Arab-American leaders in Westchester warned Friday Saddam Hussein's execution will likely bring increased violence.Majed Samarneh, president of the Arab-American Council in Westchester, says Hussein may have been a brutal dictator, but many in Iraq still love him. Samarneh added that he struggles with whether executing Hussein is really doing justice when the punishment will likely bring violence for years to come. Others, like Andrew Rajwani, of White Plains, says Hussein deserves to be hanged.Last month, Hussein was found guilty of killing 148 Shiites in 1982. He was hanged at approximately 6 a.m. local Baghdad time Saturday.
