Whether weapons exist in Iraq, Saddam Hussein or post-Saddam Hussein, it is a serious enough issue that require that we continue to go and make sure that Iraq does not have weapons.

Some suggestions for you :

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

You need to form a grand coalition, and you need to put your ideological differences aside and work together to focus on people's basic needs. You can't eat sharia.

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

The Israelis should understand that it is in their long-term interest to have a democratic Egypt as a neighbor, and that it is prudent to acknowledge the legitimate interests of the Palestinians and to grant them their own state.

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

America is always a good target for a populist. In many countries, particularly authoritarian systems, if you want to get an extra bonus, you bash the Americans.

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

The time is right for a political solution and the way is negotiations.

I hope everybody will go back to the negotiating table. I've always said this is the only way forward.

I'm a lawyer. I go for due process; I go for fairness and equity - these values mean a lot to me.

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.

Once in a while, I have to pinch myself to remind myself I am Nobel laureate, but that is not part of my work plan every day.

We now have the right to have immediate, unfettered access to any site in Iraq and we have the right to interview people, both inside and outside Iraq.

The Nobel Peace Prize is a powerful message. A durable peace is not a single achievement, but an environment, a process and a commitment.
