The New York Times has called for a deferral in implementing Saddam Hussein's sentence - namely, death by hanging - Israel Radio reported on Monday. An article in the US newspaper said that Saddam must take responsibility for his crimes, but that the Iraqi nation had to concentrate on rebuilding itself at present in order to reclaim the justice and fairness it deserves. The writers of the article expressed sorrow over the fact that Shi'ite and Kurdish politicians in Iraq took advantage of Saddam's verdict to promote their own political aims.
