  2. We hope that the firing [on hotels in Iraq] will be more precise and efficient (next time), so we can get rid of this microbe [Paul Wolfowitz] and people like like him in Washington who are spreading disorder in Arab lands, Iraq and Palestine.
  3. When I saw the Iraqi people voting, it was the start of a new Arab world…The Syrian people, the Egyptian people, all say that something is changing. The Berlin Wall has fallen. We can see it.
  4. The oil axis is present in most of the U.S. administration, beginning with its president, vice-president and top advisers, including (Condoleezza) Rice, who is oil-colored, while the axis of Jews is present with Paul Wolfowitz, the leading hawk who is inciting (America) to occupy and destroy Iraq.
