What's with Drudgereport in the last two days. Yesterday, he decided that the Grand mosque in Mecca is the site of the Saddam execution, and he put the picture of the Hajj to prove it. And now he is saying that Saddam told his executioners to go to hell. In fact, in the full video of the execution, voices can be heard declaring the name of Muhammad Baqir As-Sadr (who was killed by Saddam along with his sister and other members of his family), and then several of them told Saddam "Ila Jahannam." Jahannam is an Arabic word for hell, and it appears in the Qur'an (but etymologically the word Jahnnam is from the old Ethiopic language).
