Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon delivered in Beirut by Lebanese Shiite leader Muhammad Hussein Fadhlallah, which aired on Al-'Alam TV on September 8, 2006.
Muhammad Hussein Fadhlallah: We say to President Bush: You have succeeded in becoming the most barbaric model of tyranny, because you and your despicable, extremist administration continue to threaten the Middle East, and to indiscriminately accuse those who oppose your policy, using ludicrous logic when talking about the danger Iran poses to America. All the while, everybody knows that the [real] danger is to the entire world, and comes from the imperialistic American power, with its plans for more than just a preemptive war. This is especially true now, with the commemoration of the events of 9/11, which were exploited by the American administration in order to impose its domination over the world, while everyone can see that these events were not subjected to any legal process. It's been said that the Jews and some American powers may be behind this. But they concealed this very well. Everybody can see that these events were not subjected to any legal process in America, which would determine clearly who is responsible.
