Chess king cheers attacks on U.S.

LONDON (Sunday Telegraph) Bobby Fischer, the reclusive American chess grandmaster, has broken years of silence to support the terrorist attacks on the United States.

Mr Fischer gave an interview to an obscure radio station in the Philippines hours after the events on September 11.

Mr. Fischer is wanted for questioning by the FBI for breaking sanctions by participating in a chess match in Serbia against Boris Spassky in 1992 his first for 20 years.

In his interview on September 11 with Radio Bombo in Baguio City, Mr. Fischer said: "This is all wonderful news. It is time to finish off the U.S. once and for all. I was happy and could not believe what was happening. All the crimes the U.S. has committed in the world. This just shows, what goes around comes around, even to the U.S. I applaud the act. The U.S. and Israel have been slaughtering the Palestinians for years. Now it is coming back at the U.S."

He gave the interview because he is a friend of Pablo Mercado, the station manager. They met through mutual friend Eugene Torre, the Philippine chess grandmaster. Mr. Mercado confirmed yesterday that he took a call from Mr. Fischer and then interviewed him live on air. Mr. Fischer now lives in Japan.

Funny thing for a Jewish guy to say.

Actually Fischer is half Jewish. His father was German, his mother Jewish. They separated when he was 2. Somehow he morphed into a virulent Jew-hater and all around crank.
