ĎThe impression of fear, itís good for me... I like ití

Walk the Talk

You wrote an editorial recently in Samna praising Saddam Hussein.

Yes I did, because I did not like it when Bush attacked Iraq.

How does that square with your suspicion of the Muslims?

I don't blame all Muslims, but it is difficult to make out which Muslim loves this country and which doesn't.

You don't regret having praised Hitler?

I condemn Hitler because of the massacre of Jews. But I love artists, painters.

... as you have picked up your wine glass, let me wish you a happy 80th birthday. Do you drink wine in the afternoon everyday?

Yes... and in the evening, after nine.

You have it as wine or medicine?

Actually medicine. I have constipation. The doctor advised me to drink red wine, but I don't like the taste of it. I like white.

Red wine is good for the heart...

But I don't have a heart, I am a heartless person. So white is good for me.
