Saddam’s Chair

by Kelly from the Path on December 5, 2010

…For Arwel, a bit of Palace History! (recent history, not exactly from the cradle of civilization, but still interesting). The following description copied from a palace brochure, no author listed to credit:

“…Throne given to Saddam by Yassir Arafat. Emblem in middle is representation of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, also know as the Dome of the Rock. The inlay says “Holiness to us” on the sides and on the Top it says “victory from God and success is near.” The book at the top has a verse from the chapter of the Koran Entitled “The Israelites”…”

Kelly and Libby catch a break on Saddam's chair

…and yes, everyone has their picture taken in it. (Seriously, how can one resist?)
