Saddam Hussein’s fourth novel, reportedly completed the day before the U.S. invaded Iraq, is set to hit bookstores:
The novel revolves around a tribe living on the Euphrates River 1,500 years ago that succeeds in ousting an invading tribe through resistance. It tells the story of a man named Ezekiel who plots to overthrow a town’s sheik but is defeated by the sheik’s daughter and an Arab warrior. The story appears to be a metaphor for a Zionist-Christian plot against Arabs and Muslims. Ezekiel is meant to symbolize the Jews.
I’m guessing that Billy Zane already has first dibs on the movie rights.
