Idi Amin, Murderous and Erratic Ruler of Uganda in the 70’s, Dies in Exile
By MICHAEL T. KAUFMAN
Published: August 17, 2003
 
Idi Amin, whose eight-year reign of terror in Uganda encompassed widespread killing, torture and dispossession of multitudes and left the country pauperized, died yesterday in Jidda, Saudi Arabia, where he had lived for years in exile. He was believed to have been about 78 years old, though some reports said he was as old as 80.


Mr. Amin had been hospitalized and on life support since mid-July. He died from multiple organ failure, Reuters reported.


For much of the 1970’s, the beefy, sadistic and telegenic despot had reveled in the spotlight of world attention as he flaunted his tyrannical power, hurled outlandish insults at world leaders and staged pompous displays of majesty.


By contrast, his later years were spent in enforced isolation as the Saudi Arabian authorities made sure he maintained a low profile. Mr. Amin, a convert to Islam, his four wives and more than 30 children fled Uganda just ahead of an invading force of Ugandan exiles and Tanzanian troops that overthrew his government. They went first to Libya, and eventually to Saudi Arabia.


By the time he had escaped with his life, the devastation he had wreaked lay fully exposed in the scarred ruins of Uganda. The number of people he caused to be killed has been tabulated by exiles and international human rights groups as close to 300,000 out of a total population of 12 million.


Those murdered were mostly anonymous people: farmers, students, clerks and shopkeepers who were shot or forced to bludgeon one another to death by members of death squads, including the chillingly named Public Safety Unit and the State Research Bureau. Along with the military police, these forces numbering 18,000 men were recruited largely from Mr. Amin’s home region. They often chose their victims because they wanted their money, houses or women, or because the tribal groups the victims belonged to were marked for humiliation.


But there were also many hundreds of prominent men and women among the dead. Their killings were public affairs carried out in ways that were meant to attract attention, terrorize the living and convey the message that it was Mr. Amin who wanted them killed. They included cabinet ministers, Supreme Court judges, diplomats, university rectors, educators, prominent Catholic and Anglican churchmen, hospital directors, surgeons, bankers, tribal leaders and business executives.

Idi Amin’s Exile Dream
By RICCARDO ORIZIO
August 21, 2003
Op-Ed article by Riccardo Orizio says Idi Amin he met in exile in 1997 was unchanged from ‘Big Daddy’ of Uganda who, in 1970’s, was proud of being most feared leader in Africa; says he expressed no regrets about 300,000 Ugandans he had killed; says he knew that luxury and quiet death in foreign city could not match real prize given dictator who manages to hang on; says such men know that time heals and world tends to forget; says surprising number of Ugandans were in favor of allowing him back …

[ISLAMIC] FASCISM – ADMIRING HITLER


Muslim Attitudes to Jews and Israel: The Ambivalences of Rejection, Antagonism, Tolerance and Cooperation, Moshe Ma’oz, Sussex Academic Press, 2009, Page 253

February 1972, the Muslim president of Uganda, Idi Amin, visited Qadhafi in Tripoli and received promises of military and financial assistance if he cut off relations with the “Zionist entity.” In a joint statement, both presidents emphasized their desire to base their regimes on Islam and expressed their support for “the Arab struggle against Zionism and Imperialism.” One month later, Idi Amin severed Uganda’s diplomatic relations with Israel and called on all Israelis to leave Uganada.
Since then, Amin became a sworn enemy of Israel and the Jews… Amin’s anti-Semitism reached a peak when, in September 1972, he sent a telegram to UN secretary-General Kurt Waldheim in which he applauded the massacre of Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich and added that Germany was the most appropriate for this because it was where Hitler burned more than six million Jews…


… Amin’s “Hitler telegram” elicited angry reactions in the world at large and many African laeders, including Muslims, denounced it. In September 1972, Amin declared the black Jewish community of Uganda, known as the Abayudaya (Jews), to be illegal and their synagogues were destroyed…

Idi Amin… earned himself a place in history for his atrocities and buffooneries… An eccentric and bizarre character, he admired Hitler and tried to emulate him. He even wanted to build a monumenty to the Fuhrer…


And through the yeas, he also targeted assorted groups, including real and [p. 65] perceived enemies, across the spectrum, and praised Hitler as a true nationalist for persecuting and exterminating Jews. He even expelled almost all Asians from Uganda in 1972, including Ugandan citizens of Asian – mostly Indian and Pakistani – origin, and gave them only three weeks to leave the country. About 70,000 left Uganda…
President Julius Myerere of Tanzania condemned Idi Amin for expelling the Asians and called him a racist.
