Legendary chess player Bobby Fischer was allowed to leave Japan for Iceland, where he will be given citizenship there. Fischer had some harsh words for the President Bush, stating, "Bush does not respect law." This is coming from the guy who is accepting Iceland citizenship to attempt to avoid criminal charges he faces in the U.S. (though Iceland does have an extradition treaty with the U.S.). Read more of his quotes here. He offers many more, I guess you could say, insightful comments about the U.S. and Israel.
