The executioner said that he was ordered to seize two 19-year-old students and take them to a farm of Uday Hussein, Saddam’s oldest son. As soon as they arrived the students were dragged to a cage containing the lions and forced inside. “I saw the head of the first student literally come off his body with the first bite,” he said. He then had to stand and watch the animals devour the two young men.

He was told later that the two young men “had competed with Uday where some young ladies were concerned”.

Anybody who puts a stop to this kind of stuff deserves to have shoes thrown at him. Of course the Arab world applauded the shoe-throwing, which tells you about the cultural level of that world:

[The cheers] tell you something about the intellectual impoverishment of Arab culture. Zaidi is a hero in the view of these men for his childish, impotent and potentially (though not actually) harmful expression of unreasoning rage.

It's a good thing that I'm a multiculturalist, or I might think less of Arab culture for this.
