The Saudi-based religious television channel, Iqra TV, interviewed the Sunni Iraqi cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Al-Kubeisi, who discussed the situation in Iraq. Following are excerpts from the interview:
Ahmad Al-Qubeisi: (This nation's) armies, leaders, its press, its media, its teachers, and its universities are all created privately.
Moderator: Who created them?
Al-Qubeisi: You know who created them, the Jews created them with the West.
Moderator: The Jews created all this?!
Al- Qubeisi: Yes, the Jews created it All of it, all of it. King Faisal I, 16 days after his coronation, flew from Baghdad to Paris and signed Palestine over to the Jews. Every single one of them is the same...
The Nation is unstable?! This Nation that begets courageous and brave girls, this amazing steadfastness, this commendable return to this great religion and this awareness the like of which you cannot find anywhere in the world. An unstable nation?! How could this nation be unstable when it has a girl who, in the spring of her life, with two children blows herself up, and she is in the height of her happiness. The nation is not unstable. It is the regime that is unstable.
