Following are excerpts from an archival video featuring Egyptian presidential candidate Hamadeen Sabahi, which aired on Dream 2 TV on July 17,
: When a weapon is pointed at the Americans, it is good. Any weapon that kills an American is good. Any gun pointed at the Marines is good. Any
kidnapping or slaughtering of an American in Iraq is good.
One must salute this organization [Al-Qaeda] when it kills any American soldiers – a soldier, not a civilian. The presence of Al-Qaeda in Iraq as part
of the resistance is a positive phenomenon that should be supported. I support Al-Qaeda when it kills Americans.
