President Putin to Israeli Prime Minister:

"Say hello to your president. He really surprised us. We did not know he could deal with 10 women. He raped 10 women. I never expected it from him. He surprised all of us. We all envy him..."

President Bush's verdict on President Putin:

"I looked the man in the eye. I was able to get a sense of his soul. We share a lot of values..."
