Following are excerpts from a TV show featuring Lebanese New Age guru Maryam Nour and Ali Haydar, an expert on natural disasters. The show aired on LBC TV on June 10, 2012.
Interviewer: "Some said these were comets and others called them UFOs in the Lebanese skies, but then, the USSR… or rather, Russia said that it had conducted a missile test, which strayed from its planned course. This missile was visible in the skies, and people began to think that they were seeing UFOs, flying saucers, or aliens." […]
Maryam Nour: "Let's cut to the chase. There is no smoke without fire. In 1946 [sic], they made the film 'Cocoon.' The [aliens] came to America. About 20 years ago, the 'Other Side' was living with me, in my home in America. […]
"Listen, this is not religion. This is the truth. The human body dies. Ashes to ashes…"
Ali Haydar: "That's right, and nothing is left of us. We are eating by bacteria. End of story."
Maryam Nour: "End of story?! Where does your soul go?"
Ali Haydar: "There is no soul according to science."
Maryam Nour gets up and collects her papers
Ali Haydar: "Many people have bowed down to science. You're not the first one."
Maryam Nour: "With your permission, I’ll take my leave. I don't want to sit with ignoramuses."
Ali Haydar: "You shouldn't be allowed to sit here before you change your mentality."
Maryam Nour: "Enough. You are all ignoramuses. This is what the world has come to. 14 million Jews have the world under their boot because of people like you…"
Ali Haydar: "The only boot here is your tongue. You should enroll in first year at university."
Maryam Nour: "You say the Prophet's nocturnal journey never happened? Shame on you!"
Ali Haydar: "Shame on you yourself."
Maryam Nour walks out of the studio
Maryam Nour: "Please let me go…"
Interviewer: "Maryam, do you want me to come and calm you down?"
Maryam Nour: "No, I want to speak with you alone. What kind of people do you bring here? Ignoramuses."
Ali Haydar: "You should enroll in first year at university before you become worthy of sitting here next to me." […]
