In a democracy, when you get 20 million people in the street, you resign.

Some suggestions for you :

Unilateral preemption should not in any way be the model for how we conduct international relations.

Challenging the integrity of the non-proliferation regime is a matter which can affect international peace and security.

Every country has the right to nuclear technology as long as they use it safely, peacefully and in a secure way.

If a huge number of people call for change, the government will have to react. If you want to avoid uprisings, or demonstrations, you need to respond to the people's desperate need for change.

It's up to any government to decide how to react to the denial of basic human rights anywhere in the world, including Egypt.

The dream of democracy has long been enshrined in the hearts of the Egyptian people. It only needed awakening.

We have lived for thousands of years together, Muslims and Christians; we are part of the same society.

We must abandon the unworkable notion that it is morally reprehensible for some countries to pursue weapons of mass destruction, yet morally acceptable for others to rely on them for security - and indeed to continue to refine their capacities and postulate plans for their use.

I do not want to see the whole Egyptian people feel protected by my presence. They really have to fight for their freedom whether I'm there or not.

Democracy is not an instant coffee.

What I see in the Arab world, in Egypt, everywhere is increasing radicalization.

You either have a civil society or you don't.

Your economic and social development is linked to the kind of regime you have.

Everyone in the Middle East pretty much wants to come and be an American citizen, but pretty much everybody is angry with the U. S. foreign policy.
