Apparently, nothing makes Palestinians happier than the death of Americans and Israelis, as a whopping 80% of Palestinians back Saddam in a war against the U.S., according to a Palestinian research poll.

The Iraqi ruler, for his part, has been supporting the Palestinians in their current conflict with Israel, notably by sending up to $25,000 to the families of suicide bombers.
