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.

Some suggestions for you :

I have a lot of interests in global issues, as you know, humanity, inequity, arms control, and I continue to be active on all these issues.

I'm not a grassroots organizer; that is clear. I believe in a division of labor. I'm not trained to organize the grassroots, and grassroots has to come from the grassroots.

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

Democracy is not an instant coffee.

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

Threat is in the eye of the beholder.

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

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

Well, first of all, we now have everybody with the exception of India, Pakistan, and Israel, and I don't think these three countries are going to join by simply providing them an incentive, in terms of technology.

The U.S. is not the holder of truth.

Even with the best intentions, you can have a nuclear war, a nuclear holocaust, through miscalculation, through accidents.

I think we still have a chance if we continue with our work, if Iraq provides full cooperation, we should still be able to avoid a war.

The international community must do a better job of controlling the risks of nuclear proliferation. Sensitive parts of the nuclear fuel cycle - the production of new fuel, the processing of weapon-usable material, the disposal of spent fuel and radioactive waste - would be less vulnerable to proliferation if brought under multinational control.

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