PA Leader: Bush is the Head of the Snake

In the June 3 edition of the Palestinian Authority daily newspaper al-Hayat al-Jadida, a senior PA official, 'Adli Sadeq, described U.S. President George W. Bush as "the head of the snake of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and the head of the snake of the American oppression against both the Palestinians and the Arabs."
He wrote the article, the latest of his regular columns in al-Hayat al-Jadida, in response to the convening of the summit of Arab leaders with Bush at Sharm el-Sheikh, which preceded the Aqaba summit with PA leader Abu Mazen and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Again repeating a phrase that he seems to have a fondness for, Sadeq writes, "...the arrival of the head of the snake will become an additional opportunity for the [representatives] of the Arab regimes who are present, to realize that appeasing the U.S. and acquiescing to it will not benefit them or their peoples..."
The PA official goes on to declare that the Bush-led victory in the just-completed war against the Iraqi regime was not a "'victory of the brave '.... he is not among the courageous victors in true battles between equals." The relative ease with which the U.S.-led coalition dispatched the Baathist regime, claims Sadeq, was "only due to the treachery... of those Saddam had allowed to rule Iraq with an iron fist..." However, he warns, "the Arabs still have accounts to settle... they still have resistance [forces] hidden in the heart of Iraqi society, whose aim is to expel the defeated invaders..." Again, calling on his well-worn catch phrase, the PA official concludes his analysis of the Iraq war by saying that President Bush "is [the] head of the snake of the despicable invasion snake in Iraq..."
On the matter of the American war on terrorism, 'Adli Sadeq writes that it is, in fact, "the building of an American empire, with imperialistic goals disguised as a war on terrorism...." At the Sharm el-Sheikh summit, the Palestinian Authority official laments, "Bush will find no one to tell him openly that the American policy will lead to disaster and that it is the source of vengeance which led some young Arabs and Muslims to explode. As long as the Arab regimes obey Washington for no good reason, and as long as Washington endorses criminal acts and aggression against [other] nations' honor and resources - the terror will not cease and America will not be able to eradicate it...."
At the conclusion of his al-Hayat al-Jadida column, Palestinian Authority official 'Adli Sadeq suggests an alternative Arab approach: "It would have been better and more rational for the Arab representatives in Sharm el-Sheikh to make an effort to convince [Bush] that he is the one who should fear, and that they are the ones who should frighten him. It is he who should fear the future, because his experience in Iraq is not bright and America is sinking deeper and deeper in a putrid swamp, and will extricate itself from it only as a defeated, stinking loser..."
