Shimon Peres said Iran’s president will suffer the same fate as Saddam Hussein. Israel’s elder statesman spoke out Saturday after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in a Tehran conference, repeated calls for the Jewish state’s elimination and questioned the Holocaust. “His remarks recall those voiced by Saddam Hussein. Ahmadinejad will end up like Saddam Hussein,” Peres said in a statement read by Israel Radio.
