He wants a "vacation from war"

Bassam Jarrar, manager of FAL residential compound in Riyadh, and a Palestinian, is planning to watch the inauguration tonight. And he is pleased about the transition:

"It is a change. I think the world needs a break. Everybody gets vacation. I'm talking from Middle East, we Middle East, we need a vacation, we need a vacation from war. This is what we need. I think it's time for a break. And we're optimistic that whoever comes will never, ever be like George Bush! Whoever [it is]! So I'm very optimistic."
