Only if you empower the liberals, if you empower the moderate socialists, if you empower all factions of society, only then will extremists be marginalised.

Some suggestions for you :

You can't, in the 21st century, continue to live in a system where people live under martial law for 30 years.

If Egypt were going to change, it is going to change through the young people.

I feel relieved that we discovered that Iraq did not have nuclear weapons.

As much as we Egyptians treasure our military, acting alone it cannot provide the legitimacy to lay the foundations for democracy.

I grew up in a conservative household. That was the life of the time in Egypt: a conservative, middle-class household.

If you have nothing to hide, there is no reason not to be transparent.

Countries that perceive themselves to be vulnerable can be expected to try to redress that vulnerability - and in some cases, they will pursue clandestine weapons programs.

The sooner we put Egypt on the right track, the sooner we would be able to have an Egypt that is modern, that is moderate, and that is acting as a beacon for freedom and liberty across the Arab world.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a religiously conservative group. They are a minority in Egypt. They are not a majority of the Egyptian people, but they have a lot of credibility because all the other liberal parties have been smothered for 30 years.

Historically, Islam was hijacked about 20 or 30 years after the Prophet and interpreted in such a way that the ruler has absolute power and is accountable only to God. That, of course, was a very convenient interpretation for whoever was the ruler.

I couldn't have imagined that I would live long enough to see Egypt emancipated from decades of repression.

Iran has the technology to produce the highly enriched uranium, which is not automatically meaning nuclear weapon.

Whether one believes in evolution, intelligent design, or Divine Creation, one thing is certain. Since the beginning of history, human beings have been at war with each other, under the pretext of religion, ideology, ethnicity and other reasons. And no civilization has ever willingly given up its most powerful weapons.

Nobody wants any country to have nuclear weapons.
