Following are excerpts from a demonstration opposite a KFC restaurant in Damascus, aired on Al-Jazeera TV on January 28, 2006.

Crowd: This generation and the next are against America and Israel.

Oh, Arab, wherever you are - destroy the army of the Americans.

Oh, Arab, wherever you are - destroy the army of the Americans.

George Bush, listen, listen - the Arab people will not kneel down.

Beware, oh America - this darkness will not last for ever.


Oh American, do not be hasty – go ask De Gaulle and then think.

We've buried many a French soldier, we've buried many a Turkish soldier.

We've hammered the first nail in the coffin of colonialism.


Neither Kentucky nor the dollar will enter the land of Syria.
