Saddam Failed

This is a portion of a photo (cropped out), taken in my recent trip to the Creation Museum.  In case you are not able to read the card above, it says…

SNATCHED FROM SADDAM’S CLUTCHES…Before he was removed from power in 2003, the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein ordered all Torah scrolls destroyed throughout Iraq.  But several scrolls, such as this fragment, were saved from destruction. Efforts to destroy God’s Word have met similar resistance throughout history.This scroll, written on sheepskin, tells the entire story of Noah, from Genesis 4:21 to 10:13.  A Hebrew University scholar identified both the paper and the script as approximately 300 years old.
