Famous words at Arab summits: 'We will work... we will strive... we will struggle... we will resist... we will... we will... we will...' Tamam Darwish in Al-Bayan of the UAE

"One should not expect much excitement out of the summit since this meeting does not intend to address any controversial issues." -- Al-Nour Ahmed Al-Nour, Al-Sahafa

"If the Arab summit really cared to make a difference it should [among other things] call on all Arab leaders who have been in office for more than eight years to retire." -- Al-Zoheir Al-Seraj, Al-Sudani

"The best that could be expected of this summit is for it to decide to leave the viewers' bench and get engaged in the affairs of the Arab region." -- Ahmed Shamouti, Al-Rai Al-Aam

"If the 1967 summit was remembered for the three famous "Nos" and the complete support for the occupied Arab states, the 2006 summit should witness strong decisive and unified resolutions." -- Osama Ayoub, Al-Osbou

"Khartoum was considered the Arab capital that rekindled the sense of unity and joint work among all Arab states in 1967, although Sudan was far from the field of battle." -- Mohsen Mohamed, Al-Wafd

"Bird flu has caused a loss of LE18 billion." -- Osama Dawoud, Al-Arabi
