When you visited Crawford, Texas, what was the message that you were carrying for President Bush?
I carried to President Bush all esteem and respect and friendship to the people of America. When I saw President Bush I was convinced by his wise leadership, and I wish him all success for the next step.
You also brought newspapers and video tapes. What was the purpose?
Yes, some. I wanted to show the President what was going on in Palestine. That's it.
Did he respond appropriately?
I believe so.
I have one last question. If your father King Abd al-Aziz were here today, what would he think of the country as it is today?
Well, King Abd al-Aziz had a wide long-term vision. I believe without any doubt that he would be pleased.
…What would he think of Al Qaeda, the fundamentalists, extremists?
Do you think there is a similarity between your struggle and his?
No, the Ikhwan's objective was power-sharing but these are criminals. They have no objective or goal but to harm human beings. And unfortunately, they have tainted the reputation of Muslims in the whole world. That is the thing that we need people to know about Islam, its history, its principles and Muslims. The truth is that those people only represent the devil.
Thank you. My regards to the American people, our friends.
