From a WaPo article: Arabs Rage at Bush's America
U.S. offers of financial compensation for the victims are "sickening," say the editors of the Egyptian Gazette, a state-controlled daily in Cairo.After this, it is certain that more Americans are going to die, probably soon, in terrorist attacks. In a very, very real sense, George W. Bush bears moral responsibility for their deaths.
"It seems that those in power in Washington are unaware of the fact that the Arab pride and dignity are something very precious and that only bloody revenge will bring the victims peace. Accordingly, the day of reckoning will be a hard one... the US must brace itself for more violent acts of retaliation. Families and relatives of the humiliated victims will not rest until they get their revenge on the culprits and their associates."
"The Crusaders are back. Where are you Saladin?" Khaled Hammam from Chechnya asked on the site al-ansar, referring to the 12th century Iraqi Kurdish warrior who defeated Europe's Christian invaders.
News24 reported these sites are displaying the photos from Abu Ghraib with "fiery remarks calling for 'cleansing the honour' of Muslims."
"The new conservatives, and particularly the gang of Bush, are enjoying the humiliation of the Muslims," wrote Kuwaiti Islamist Sheikh Hamed ben Abdallah Ali on the Castle (in Arabic).
One Internet user, presenting himself on Alsaha (in Arabic), as a "resistance" fighter in Iraq, said "our anger and revenge will not be appeased until we pierce the eyes which saw the sexual organs of the Iraqis and until the Americans, British and Israelis are castrated on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers."
