Egypt's president warns against hanging Saddam

According to an Associated Press article updated November 9, 2006 on the msnbc web site, Egypt's president, Hosni Mubarak, was quoted by state-run Egyptian newspapers as saying in reference to Saddam Hussein's death sentence, "Carrying out this verdict will explode violence like waterfalls in Iraq."

Mubarak is also quoted as saying that hanging Saddam "will transform (Iraq) into blood pools and lead to a deepening of the sectarian and ethnic conflicts."

Certainly this warning coincides with the warning given by Jeremiah: "I am against you, O arrogant one... For your day has come, the time when I shall punish you. And the arrogant one will stumble and fall with no one to raise him up; and I shall set fire to his cities, and it will devour all his environs" (Jer. 50:31-32).
