Following are excerpts from an interview with Swedish-Algerian TV host Yahya Abu Zakariya, which aired on Syrian TV on January 4, 2013.
Yahya Abu Zakariya: "Why do they want us to speak Hebrew? Why do they want us to sell our horses, our swords, our pens, our honor, our dignity, and our Koran to George Bush? When he came to the Arab world, some people danced with him, and exposed their daughters’ genitals to him. They danced before him as if he were the Roman Emperor Charlemagne, who came to the Arab fortresses to raze them to the ground.
"Syria is the sole exception to this rule in this whorish Arab world. Syria alone said, loud and clear: 'No to the Israeli entity. No to America.'
"Why is [Bashar] under attack? Because he pulverized those [Gulf] Bedouin, who party in Tiberias and in Tel Aviv, and who have become used to [drinking] Tzipi Livni’s milk.
"We live in whorish Arab times, my dear sir.
"Those sheep and calves waster our time with their TV channels. What do the talented Arab youths perform? Songs by Elton John and Lady Gaga. They show Western performers, calling on Arab youth to engage in prostitution and drug abuse.
"Count how many slavesgirls these Emirs have. Count their escapades with singers, dancers, and prostitutes…"
Interviewer: "And the steamy nights…"
Yahya Abu Zakariya: "An Italian actress was asked about a notable Arab Emir in the Italian La Stampa newspaper. She said: “He was very generous with me. He sent me his private plane.” If only he had sent it to Gaza, or to a devastated country in Africa, where millions of children are dying.
"She went to that Gulf state and left the next morning. She said to La Stampa: 'He was very generous. He gave me a million dollars.'
"As our [Syrian poet] Nizar Qabbani said: 'The Arab Emir spends the nation’s oil on his two testicles.'
"Once I said [on Al-Jazeera TV] that the Emir of Qatar sleeps during the day, while his wife governs, because he is addicted to Viagra. He 'wages war' all night long, and then he rests during the day, in preparation for the battle to come.
"Have you heard me speaking to the Syrian media before? I let many analysts speak, and I came at a strategic moment, which I picked carefully."
Interviewer: "It’s an honor for us…"
Yahya Abu Zakariya: "Let me stand up and salute Syria!"
Yahya Abu Zakariya stands up for a moment and then sits down again
Interviewer: "This is fabulous. You are a fabulous man."
