Last quote about Egypt

Emmanuel Macron
The debate during this G7 allowed us to advance, very clearly, in the struggle against terrorism. France has been hit in the last few years by terrorism as I will remind you the United Kingdom and Egypt in these past few days. The discussion was extremely rich on this subject and it allowed for the first time to sign a document resulting in a common commitment to fight terrorism on various fronts.feedback

All quotes about Egypt

Benjamin Netanyahu

Mr. President, Israel also shares the commitment to peace that you expressed yesterday. We've already made peace with Egypt and with Jordan, and Israel's hand is extended in peace to all our neighbors, including the Palestinians. The peace we seek is a genuine and durable one, in which the Jewish state is recognized, security remains in Israel's hands and the conflict ends once and for all. Mr. President, you just flew from Riyadh to Tel Aviv. I hope that one day an Israeli prime minister will be able to fly from Tel Aviv to Riyadh.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We've really been through a lot together positively. I will get to Egypt. We will absolutely be putting that on the list very soon. Our countries have a wonderful relationship together, but there has been a little strain, but there won't be strain with this administration. We're going to have a very, very long-term relationship. I look forward to it very much – many of the same things in common.feedback

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

Egypt is secure and stable and is going very well with the cooperation of the United States. You are a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible.feedback

Nicholas Burns

I think you're going to see a bigger effort by the United States to promote arms sales to Saudi Arabia, to the other Gulf states, [and] to help Egypt and Jordan cope with this as well as Israel. You're seeing the United States struggle with the instability and the violence produced by the Arab revolutions of 2011.feedback

Hisham Kassem

He wants to come across as the one who holds all the strings, solves everything, and the only one with ideas. It's a combination between authoritarianism and PR.feedback

Hisham Kassem

If the armed forces hadn't been an integral part of confronting this massive (economic) development, we would have probably not been able to achieve what we have.feedback

Negad Borai

It's clear that he has no trust in most state institutions. He sidesteps most institutions and deals directly with the people through these televised functions. The bottom line is, he and his preferred institutions, primarily the military, are doing everything themselves.feedback

Coretta Cornelius

How is that fair? We all know there's nowhere to use a voucher in Cairo. And what if people won't take us in neighboring cities either? I hate to say it, but Cairo has such a bad name, nobody wants people from Cairo.feedback

Ben Carson

Despite our best efforts, we know that some families, your students included, may have to move outside of Cairo. My hope would be that they never forget their Cairo roots and the inspiration you've provided.feedback

Nena Ellis

For sure they needed to fix this place up a long time ago. Are we all supposed to just scatter to other cities – to big cities? Our kids grew up in Cairo. Our memories are in Cairo. And if you take this place out, it's knocking everything else down in Cairo with it.feedback

Maren Kasper

That is the quandary that we face. You may hear from residents that they would rather stay here. But that is not safe and sanitary. We just cannot stand by that.feedback

Jerry Brown

The model for building public housing has changed over the years. If you look at rebuilding now, it's with a private partner, and we haven't been able to find any willing to commit for this.feedback

Barbara Alston

It's the just not knowing what's next that's hard. I'd like to try to relocate here in Cairo, my home, but I don't really know whether I can. Does anyone know?feedback

Daniel Byman - The Brookings Institution

Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Syria, and Pakistan have all reportedly penetrated Al Qaeda with human assets. In some cases, certain of these countries will 'run' the agent in cooperation with the United States.feedback

Friedrich Joussen - TUI

When you look at the performance in H1 and when you look at the underlying trends, I think it's very strong. Also we've had last year a profit increase of 14.5 percent and we guided for this year another profit increase of 10 percent – and the basis for that is a transformation story. We have been a [tour] operator only and now we are a hotel and cruise company, and when you see the profit contributions it is cruise and hotel profits which are driving the performance.feedback

Friedrich Joussen - TUI

We are very certain and very confident that we actually can achieve our guidance of at least 10 percent EBITA growth for the full year. I think when you look at the overall customers for H1, you can see that we had a roundabout 8 percent more customers than the year before. So yes it's true that we shift some demand away from Tunisia or Egypt or Turkey into other countries.feedback

Friedrich Joussen - TUI

However also in all fairness, I think as always the countries will come back, particularly right now Turkey, we see a very much increasing trends – so therefore I think it is some volatility but as long as we are more relevant to more customers, I think we are in a very healthy industry.feedback

Khaled al-Anani

It's the first human necropolis to be found here in Tuna al-Gabal. 2017 has been a historic year for archaeological discoveries.feedback

Eric Trappier

After a contract signed in India, regarding the delivery of 36 Rafale jets, and the order of 24 of these aircraft by Egypt and 24 other by Qatar, we should soon conclude a fourth contract abroad, but it will rather be in 2018.feedback

Shao Jingyang - Sinopec

We see a bright future here. We want to make full-spectrum cooperation with Egypt.feedback

Gamal Gomaa

We're living now on fava beans and falafel and even those are expensive. We used to buy fava beans for a pound and it was enough for breakfast for my family and now breakfast costs two or three pounds.feedback

Mohamed Abu Basha

In light of current conditions, the investment incentives are needed. The incentives will give a push to investors to come to Egypt.feedback

Reham El-Desouki

A large number of investors were waiting impatiently for the law in order to understand the investment environment in Egypt and its incentives, especially with regards to the cost of starting a project and incentives for land.feedback

Millie Kendall

It is widely accepted now that the presence of such elements can benefit one's psyche and uplift you spiritually.feedback

Millie Kendall

Rubies can be used to exfoliate, and rose quartz buffs away dead skin cells and impurities, and was used as a face mask in ancient Egypt.feedback

Frank B. Stewart Jr

I ask you, Mitch, should the Pyramids in Egypt be destroyed since they were built entirely from slave labor? What about the Roman Coliseum? It was built by slaves, who lived horrible lives under Roman oppression, but it still stands today and we learn so much from seeing it.feedback

Alicia Keys

My most recent success is continuing to bring the family closer. To help us all learn how to express ourselves, our emotions and what we are going through as a family.feedback

Penelope Lively

I have six grandchildren, in their early 20s, , and I look at them now and think they're making the sort of decisions that are going to determine the rest of their lives. It's quite alarming. But mercifully you don't know that at the time. Some of that must have come from growing up in Egypt, which is the most extraordinary place, where visible times are all juxtaposed – Pharaonic, Roman, Mamluke. It's all a jumble of time, and it's all visible. We went to the pyramids every Wednesday, and I just thought a pyramid was a normal thing and most places had them.feedback

Margaret Huang - Amnesty International USA

Reporters play a critical role in holding governments accountable for human rights abuses. Whether they are working in Turkey, Egypt, Mexico, the United States or anywhere else in the world, the press must be able to do their job.feedback

Antony Mason

There are great chunks of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome here. But there is also plenty of local talent, including medieval Brussels tapestries, retables (sculptured altarpieces), and Art Nouveau objets d'art.feedback

Pope Francis

History does not forgive those who preach justice, but then practice injustice.feedback

Grant Rumley

One of the more important things in this document is what's not in it, and that's any mention of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas released this now out of realization that Sisi is here to stay and that his war on the [Muslim] Brothers has hit them hard–not only at Rafah, but in the tunnels and in access to Egypt and the ability to get out of the Gaza Strip. It's really hamstrung the organization.feedback

Fayez Abu Shamala

The P.A. and Hamas compete to get embraced by Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab states, but it seems the Arab embrace is not enough for two women. Hamas will be an influential political body in the next phase.feedback

Pope Francis

The only fanaticism believers can have is that of charity! Any other fanaticism does not come from God and is not pleasing to him! The Church needs to know and believe that Jesus lives within her and gives her life in the Eucharist, the scriptures and the sacraments. The disciples on the way to Emmaus realized this, and returned to Jerusalem in order to share their experience with the others. It is of no use to pray if our prayer to God does not turn into love for our brothers and sisters. All our religiosity means nothing unless it is inspired by deep faith and charity.feedback

Pope Francis

As religious leaders, we are called to unmask violence that masquerades as purported sanctity. Let us say once more a firm and clear 'No' to every form of violence, vengeance and hatred carried out in the name of religion or in the name of God. To counter effectively the barbarity of those who foment hatred with violence, we need to accompany young people, helping them on the path to maturity and teaching them to respond to the incendiary logic of evil by patiently working for the growth of goodness.feedback

H.A. Helleyer

This is probably the worst it has ever been. But that's not to say things were necessarily rosy before.feedback

Mariam Fayek

I think he is a man of peace and I think he will be like John Paul II, he will be a saint.feedback

Amgad Eskandr

He is a messenger of peace, he is really a messenger of peace. All his words talk about peace, call for peace, push for peace which is great.feedback

Pope Francis

It is our duty to proclaim together that history does not forgive those who preach justice, but then practice injustice. History does not forgive those who talk about equality but then discard those who are different.feedback

Pope Francis

As religious leaders, we are called to unmask violence that masquerades as purported sanctity. Egypt, in the days of Joseph, saved other peoples from famine; today it is called to save this beloved region from a famine of love and fraternity, . It is called to condemn and vanquish all violence and terrorism. ... Egypt, in building peace and at the same time combating terrorism, is called to give proof that religion belongs to God and the nation to all. Their innocent blood unites us.feedback

Pope Francis

Their innocent blood unites us. We are not alone. We are accompanied by a great host of saints and martyrs who, already fully one, impel us here below to be a living image of the Jerusalem above. There are even few people who can raise it, and above all few who can answer it with the joy of knowing Jesus, that same joy with which we have the grace of confessing him together. Thus, by building communion in the concreteness of a daily lived witness, the Spirit will surely open providential and unexpected paths to unity.feedback

Pietro Parolin

The fundamental issue is education, and educating those of different religious beliefs and especially the young, to have great respect for those of other faiths. The question of language is fundamental: when you use a violent language, there is the danger that it can result in violent acts.feedback

Pope Francis

Demagogic forms of populism are on the rise. These certainly do not help to consolidate peace and stability. No incitement to violence will guarantee peace, and every unilateral action that does not promote constructive and shared processes is in reality a gift to the proponents of radicalism.feedback

Ahmed Ramzy el Sabbagh

This was more than just a meeting between two people. It was a meeting of religions.feedback

Pope Francis

How many martyrs in this land, from the first centuries of Christianity, have lived their faith heroically to the end, shedding their blood rather than denying the Lord and yielding to the enticements of evil, or merely to the temptation of repaying evil with evil! Their innocent blood unites us. We are not alone. We are accompanied by a great host of saints and martyrs who, already fully one, impel us here below to be a living image of the Jerusalem above.feedback

Pope Francis

Peace alone... is holy and no act of violence can be perpetrated in the name of God, for it would profane his name. Together let us affirm the incompatibility of violence and faith, belief and hatred.feedback

Boulos Halim

After all the pain we have experienced ... we are satisfied and confident that the state is taking strong security measures to prevent terrorism and protect churches. It's in the state's interests to protect its nationals and the Copts are not an independent people, they are part and parcel of the nation itself.feedback

Greg Burke

We're in the world of 'new normal'. But we go forward with serenity.feedback

Leonardo Sandri

It's an encounter of consolation, promotion and communion with the small Catholic community. But it's of great importance from an ecumenical point of view. And, of course, it is very important for dialogue with Islam, for the meeting with the sheikh of Al-Ahzar. It is necessary to have a very strong protection of Christians – they are citizens with religious rights. Especially from a point of view of religious freedom, we must consider all citizens the same.feedback

Samir Khalil Samir

So he simply passed to other things. His knowledge of Islam is limited to the nice discussions he had with the imam.feedback

Rafik Grish

This visit comes where Egyptians are wounded because of what happens, wounded in their hearts and when a Pope comes is to consolidate and give his solidarity to all the people.feedback

Catherine Ghazal

We are very happy that the Pope is coming to visit Egypt. It's a message of love and peace from him and he is trying to prove to the world that Egypt is still safe no matter what terrorism is trying to do in our country.feedback

Ashraf Bakry - Unilever

Egypt makes absolute sense because there is very low skilled labour cost and very low utilities cost as well very attractive logistics cost because the location is close to many markets.feedback

Ashraf Bakry - Unilever

Everyone is squeezed on dollars so you start looking at your import list to knock off some dollar imports.feedback

Ahmed El Sheikh

Localising raw materials is extremely important at this time. We cannot depend on a dollar-based cost structure with an Egyptian pound revenue streamline. Right now with the new cost structure, the labour cost, is considered to be low so you will have much bigger opportunities to be competitive in terms of pricing versus other relative PepsiCo entities across the region so we see this as an opportunity.feedback

Boris Johnson

We have a crisis in Yemen that is intractable and a burgeoning crisis on Egypt, and those are to my mind far more important than any obiter dicta you may have disinterred from 30 years of journalism.feedback

Ishak Ibrahim

There is a difference between the statements released by the institution and its conduct on the ground.feedback

Pope Francis

I hope that it may also offer a valid contribution to inter-religious dialogue with the Islamic world, and to ecumenical dialogue with the venerated and beloved Coptic Orthodox Church. Our world, torn by blind violence, which has also afflicted the heart of your dear land – needs peace, love and mercy.feedback

Hisham El Demery

One of the many challenges, actually, that the country has been facing over the past few years, is to have the right image about the country, to correct and portray the image of our country.feedback

Al Mahrouqi - Ministry of Tourism

We have segmented different types of tourism so we have focused as well on family-oriented tourism, cultural tourism and adventure tourism.feedback

Issam Kazim

Twenty million by 2020 is the first milestone. And of course we are building a lot of infrastructure, theme parks, amusement parks, hotels, roads and transport and the networking within the airport, all of it will be leveraged to really benefit Expo 2020.feedback

Pope Francis

I hope that this visit will be an embrace of consolation and of encouragement to all Christians in the Middle East; a message of friendship and esteem to all inhabitants of Egypt and the region; a message of fraternity and reconciliation to all children of Abraham, particularly in the Islamic world. I hope that it may also offer a valid contribution to interreligious dialogue with the Islamic world and to ecumenical dialogue with the venerated and beloved Coptic Orthodox Church.feedback

Shania Twain

My favorite music video that I've ever done is 'The Woman in Me'. I went to Egypt to film that video and I got to ride a horse between the pyramids. It was incredible.feedback

Sean Spicer

The national security team, in particular, was working through diplomatic channels to folks in the el-Sisi government. Most of this was directly tied to his staff and his actions.feedback

Wade McMullen

First and foremost, there have been countless number of people advocating for Aya Hijazi's freedom. I think Trump and his team deserve credit for making this a priority at the most critical time in her case. The prosecution quickly realized they didn't have enough evidence to substantiate [the charges]. Just talking with them tonight, their spark is still there to make the world a better place. Whether it's street children in Egypt or for any causes, once they're back on their feet, they'll be committed and working to make the world a better place.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We are very happy to have Aya Hijazi back home, and it's a great honor to have her in the Oval Office with her brother and thank you very much.feedback

Paolo Gentiloni

Now is the moment for the US and Italy to work together to stabilise the situation and broaden the support for the Tripoli government to other actors. The division of Libya is not a good idea. It would be dangerous for Egypt, dangerous for Tunisia and for the interests of Europe.feedback

Sean Spicer

At the end of the day we're just pleased that she's back home … and that the president and the team successfully worked to bring her back home.feedback

Mattia Toaldo

You are in a situation where the US backs off from the political process, the UN is extremely weak, the French and the British are having elections, and the Italians were basically pushed aside. So who is left? Egypt, Russia, and Algeria.feedback

Kathleen Rivera

[Lomax] was poring over these punch cards and computing systems for entire days. His vision couldn't match the technology that he had at the time. Today, we have the system that can make it all very clear for people.feedback

Zack Gold

This helps Islamic State in its economic warfare against the state.feedback

Don Beyer

This wonderful news was a long time coming. I feel a deep sense of joy and relief for Aya, her husband, their colleagues at Belady who were imprisoned, Aya's mother Naglaa, and her sister Alaa and brother Basel. I offer my humble thanks and congratulations today to them and to her many friends who worked so hard to raise the profile of this case and pressure the Egyptian government to gain her freedom.feedback

Mohamed Hassanein

We promised them that we could come back. Children are wealth, and they were strong while we have been in prison. We want to go back to the streets.feedback

Taher Abol Nasr

Even the child and his mother testified at court in defense of Aya and the others.feedback

Joe Stork

Aya Hijazi, her husband, and their colleagues are finally free, but the system that subjected them to a travesty of justice for nearly three years remains unchanged. We promised the children they won't return to the streets again, and this promise was hindered for three years. We will return and meet that promise.feedback

Wake McMullen

There was no reason the case should have been brought in the first place.feedback

Dina el Ghamry

Three years is a long time. Too long. They waited two years before even coming to court.feedback

Wade McMullen

Their engagement was indeed key to helping ensure space for the judge to issue his acquittal free from the influence of larger political forces.feedback

Aya Hijazi

I feel like the mother of the bride. They have graduated with honours. They didn't give up on their dream of there being no more street children. It was worth it for their cause.feedback

Mohamed Hassanein

We were delayed for three years ... starting today, God willing, there won't be any children without shelter.feedback

Aya Hijazi

Humanity became free, and the dream doesn't die. On the contrary, the dream becomes stronger.feedback

Najla Hosni

I told Aya that she graduated from their trial with honor.feedback

Ruben Enaje

As long as we trust in the Lord, praying fervently, it's never too far that the Lord won't listen.feedback

Karem Mahmoud

The boards in their current form are dominated by executive authority representatives, to guarantee its control over state-owned and private media. This isn't the law the committee proposed.feedback

Ann Coulter

We want the president of America back, not the president of the world. As awful as it was to see those dead children, Trump knew that America's first duty is to our own children. We have never succeeded at turning a Third World dictatorship into a paradise. The history of these things is that removing a Middle Eastern strongman always makes things worse – for example, in Iran, Iraq, Libya and Egypt. The Washington establishment is determined to manipulate the president into launching counterproductive military strikes.feedback

Angelo Becciu

There is no doubt that the pope will carry out his intention to go.feedback

Blair Levin

And then arose a Pharaoh who knew not Jefferson, whose tiny hands had never touched the soil. As far as I can tell, the Seder is always political. One of the things about the Passover story is: How do you deal with a powerful autocrat? There are many different messages that one can take from it. But one of them is: Do not oppress the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. I don't know how you read the news without thinking about that message. This is a moment that it struck me that the parallels are pretty obvious.feedback

Sayed Badreya

Now there's going to be less freedom to say whatever we want. We must do something different. We must find a way to educate people. There are people walking in the street without any hope or dream. The anger of the young people is that we're going to forget. It happens every day. Everybody is fighting and is not listening to each other.feedback

David Frommer

I looked at the flier advertising my upcoming Seders at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan: “Commemorate The Miracle that The LORD Redeemed Our Forefathers and Us from Egypt, praising the LORD for all the Miracles HE continues to do for us.” As a summary of how Southern Baptists, like its author, the command chaplain, understand the [].feedback

Dawn Fitzpatrickstarted

Julia gives me hope that my children and their peers will grow up in a world where autism is normalized, rather than stigmatized.feedback

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

Today, a decision was taken to form a higher committee for combating terrorism and extremism in Egypt. It will be formed by a law, allowing this committee to take control of the whole situation.feedback

Mokhtar Awad

There's a significant propaganda factor to this. ISIS wants to show that it can attack one of the Arab world's most populous countries. I think it was a calculated escalation.feedback

Mai El-Sadany

We're likely to see people who tweet or use Facebook for political purposes, or to call for protests, being tried in these courts.feedback

Pope Tawadros II

Christians are in a state of shock. Attacks are recurrent, victims are falling in bigger numbers, and people live in fear and these groups are growing in power, number, and resources.feedback

Mina Thabet

We are seeing simultaneous attacks, based on strong information, targeting big churches across the country. This is a very dangerous development.feedback

Anba Angaelos

The world we live in now means there is always a risk. Someone of the profile of Pope Francis – both the head of a church and a head of state – means there will be security protocols in place to protect and safeguard him.feedback

Anba Angaelos

At the highest level, a lot of attention and care is given to this issue. But the problem is at the local security level. Reports [of attacks] are not taken seriously or investigated robustly. There are a lack of prosecutions and people not being held to account. That almost reinforces a sense of impunity. It's a wonderful chance for Francis to practically show support for Christians in Egypt and in the Middle East.feedback

Abdel Masih Fawzy

It was horrible; I saw the intestines and stomach of some of the dead outside the bodies. But we are not sad, we are happy because they are martyrs for Jesus.feedback

Mark Botrous

The police say that the metal detector was broken. If it's broken, why they didn't inspect people if there was no machine to alert?feedback

Jantzen Garnett

It was not until December 2016 when the Islamic State began a systematic campaign to target Coptic Christians in Egypt. As the Islamic State is squeezed in Iraq and Syria it often conducts spectacular attacks elsewhere in an attempt to regain the narrative, boost morale and win recruits. The Islamic State has struggled, with constant setbacks, to establish a sizable presence on the Egyptian mainland over the preceding years. These church bombings indicate they have a growing presence on the mainland.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

The aim of the perpetrators, to drive a wedge between people of different faiths living peacefully side-by-side, mustn't be allowed to happen.feedback

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

What are you talking about, ten years?' He turned to his housing minister. I'm serious. We don't work that way. Not ten years, not seven years. No way.feedback

Rachel Aviv

The next day, a doctor inserted a feeding tube through Georgi's nostril. He showed no resistance,' Soslan said. Nothing.' Georgi was given a diagnosis of uppgivenhetssyndrom, or resignation syndrome, an illness that is said to exist only in Sweden, and only among refugees. The patients have no underlying physical or neurological disease, but they seem to have lost the will to live. The Swedish refer to them as de apatiska, the apathetic. I think it is a form of protection, this coma they are in,' Hultcrantz said. They are like Snow White. They just fall away from the world.feedback

Ishaq Ibrahim

What happened is a dangerous indicator that shows how easy it is to attack a large gathering of people in different places. There is a complete government failure in taking the IS (Daesh) threat seriously.feedback

Jacob Alperin-Sheriff

I do think it's important to make it relevant to the current situation. You're supposed to view yourself as if you were in the situation of the Jews coming out of Egypt. And that's I guess hard to do if you don't find it relevant to yourself.feedback

Margaret Yang - CMC Markets

Volatility was substantially higher last week, and safe-haven asset prices soared as geopolitical tensions and financial uncertainties rose. Therefore, a 'risk-off' sentiment will probably continue to overshadow stock markets in the near term.feedback

Mehmet Gormez

The immunity of a place of worship, no matter the religion it belongs to, cannot be violated and the bloodthirsty killing of innocent worshippers cannot ever be forgiven.feedback

Alec Baldwin

We all love Trump don't we? We do, we do. I just had an amazing week, folks. I met with leaders from China, Egypt and Jordan. Gorsuch was confirmed and the media is saying nice things and no one is talking about Russia. Well, what a difference just 59 Tomahawk missiles can make. You mean Paul Ryan couldn't. It's Susan Rice. My wife doesn't want to move either. So you asked her, point blank, and she said – ? OK, but when she said no, what was her vibe? Yeah, like when she said no, did her eyes say yes? Sometimes they'll do that.feedback

Fawzi Barhoum - Hamas

Hamas strongly condemns the heinous crimes against churches and places of worship in Egypt, which targeted unarmed civilians and led to the death and injury of dozens. Hamas wishes safety, security, stability and prosperity for Egypt and its people.feedback

Ed Rogers

I don’t want to jinx anything, but President Trump may be experiencing the best sequence of events since he became president. Just this week, he received bipartisan support for his military strike in Syria, secured Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Senate confirmation to the Supreme Court, had impressive meetings with both King Abdullah II of Jordan and President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi of Egypt, caught a break with the Susan Rice scandal, and it appears he has walked away from a successful encounter with Chinese President Xi Jinping - all without knocking it off the rails with a wayward tweet. And it’s not just me saying that, no less than Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass wrote that this was “arguably [the] best of Donald Trump’s still young presidency, from [a] successful strike in Syria to confirmation of his Supreme Court nominee.” Imagine that, decisive and poised presidential action from the president himself.feedback

Emily Reeve

Unfortunately atherosclerosis and greying hair are just a part of the ageing process and some people are more susceptible than others. But while a few grey hairs are easily fixed, we need to fund more medical research to find a way to stop your arteries from narrowing and cut your risk of heart disease.feedback

Emily Reeve

A much larger study is needed before we start using hair colour as a measure of heart disease risk. If you're over 40 and worried about your heart health you should ask your GP for a free health check.feedback

Nicolas Baretzki - Montblanc

When you see that around 59 million kids around the world are not even learning to write, or that more than 92 million kids are dropping out of school before the age of 10, it's clear there is still something really meaningful we can do. When you talk about writing and the power of words, about how they pass from generation to generation you realise that writing is what helps to communicate. Without that carved stone we would never have been able to understand the rich culture of Ancient Egypt.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We had a very, very fine delegation come over from Egypt, and also from Iraq. And they said more has been done in the last six weeks than has been done in years with the previous administration, and believe me, we're going to keep it that way.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

The Post reports on the visit of Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I just want to let everybody know, in case there was any doubt, that we are very much behind President el-Sissi. He's done a fantastic job in a very difficult situation. We are very much behind Egypt and the people of Egypt. We have strong backing. Hopefully, you liked me a lot more. Together, we will fight terrorism and other things and we're going to be friends for a very, very long time.feedback

Nikki Haley

But there are friends you can work with, while at the same time saying we do not like what you are doing with respect to human rights. The White House is very supportive of me talking about human rights – but that doesn't mean we are not going to speak to Egypt, to Saudi Arabia. We are going to play with who we need to play with. It is not intended to in any way call out certain countries or blast them or use this as a gotcha game. We are a strong group. We are working as a team. And I am honoured to be part of that team.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I just want to let everybody know in case there was any doubt, that we are very much behind President Sissi. He's done a fantastic job in a very difficult situation. We are very much behind Egypt and the people of Egypt. I just want to say to, you, Mr. President, that you have a great friend and ally in the United States, and in me.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I have been close to him since the first time we met. Hopefully now you like me more. We agree on so many things. We are very much behind President Sisi – he has done a fantastic job in a very difficult situation. We are building up our military to the highest level we have probably ever had. We are rejuvenating our military to a highest ever level. I just want to say to you, Mr President, you have a great ally in the US and in me.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're having great discussions with representatives of Egypt and with the president. We have many things in common. We have a few things that we don't agree on. This is going to be a very productive day and it's a great honour.feedback

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

Since we met last September I have had a deep appreciation and admiration of your unique personality, especially since you are standing so strong against terrorism. Very strongly and openly you will find Egypt and myself beside you.feedback

Tom Malinowski

We've given Egypt $70 billion over the years, and last I checked there are no Egyptian F-16s helping us fight ISIS over Raqqa or Mosul. All we get from the Egyptians is political repression that radicalizes its youth and gives terrorist groups new life.feedback

Sarah Margon - Human Rights Watch

Inviting al-Sisi for an official visit to Washington as tens of thousands of Egyptians rot in jail and when torture is again the order of the day is a strange way to build a stable strategic relationship.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We agree on so many things. I just want to let everybody know in case there was any doubt that we are very much behind President al-Sisi. We will fight terrorism and other things. We're going to be friends for a long, long period of time. We have a great bond with the people of Egypt ... I look forward to a very long and strong relationship.feedback

Sissi's brutal repression has made Egypt a mass-production facility for violent extremism. Sissi supports the regime of Assad … and has offered unqualified endorsement of Russia's increasing military presence throughout the Middle East. … His state-manipulated media is filled with anti-Western diatribes, and Americans working in Egypt, and Egyptians who work with Western organizations, have faced trumped-up charges under increasingly harsh laws criminalizing not only funding but even contacts between Egyptians and foreigners.feedback

Zeinab Abul-Magd

The riots reveal that, underneath this tranquility, a war is raging between the country's domineering army and its civilian poor. The stability of Egypt's military regime is not guaranteed to last.feedback

Eric Trager

Mr. Trump's best chance to cut a 'good deal' with Mr. Sissi may be on Monday, when the Egyptian leader receives the Washington welcome he has long desired. But if Mr. Sissi pockets that victory without conceding anything on his country's deepening relationship with Russia, prosecution of Americans or aid priorities, Mr. Trump will have wasted Washington's best hand in years.feedback

If Trump is really interested in getting the Egyptians to fight radical Islam, giving them more tanks will not help our goals.feedback

Eric Trager

It wants to see the White House legitimate it, and set it on a new course.feedback

Amy Hawthorne

The authoritarian bargain the U.S. has struck with Egypt might seem to be the right thing, but it never pays off in the long run. It's not just about being on the wrong side of history, but about over-investing in a regime that is fueling radicalization that will ultimately harm U.S. interests.feedback

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

To counter this evil ideology that is claiming innocent lives, that is bringing devastation to communities and nations, and that is terrorizing the innocent people -- your excellency, very strongly and very openly you will find Egypt and myself always behind you in this, in bringing about an effective strategy in the counterterrorism.feedback

Paola Regeni

We're certain that the pope won't forget about Giulio during this trip, joining our concrete request for the truth to finally have peace.feedback

Robert Kagan

Trump should ask Egyptian President Sissi some tough questions during his Washington visit.feedback

Jackson Diehl

The president should apply his ‘America First’ principles to the case of Aya Hijazi.feedback

Nabil Fahmy

If the U.S. aims to counter terrorism, it is natural they cooperate with us.feedback

Sarah Margon - Human Rights Watch

If Trump is committed to an 'America first' foreign policy . . . he should make sure Americans get out of prison. Giving more money to the Sissi government is to the detriment of U.S. and Egyptian interests. Neither side in this relationship seems interested in promoting human rights, but the gross abuses being committed by Egyptian authorities should compel Congress to keep limiting support.feedback

Mohamed el-Menshawy

The weakness of the Egyptian economy and the continuing predicament over terrorism in Sinai don't leave in Egypt's hands many important cards.feedback

Raghida Dergham

What the American president wants from Egypt is to remove the Palestinian question from Arab priorities and marginalize the Arab initiative, which cannot be delivered by el-Sissi.feedback

Daniel Benaim

Trump would rather stand with a strongman against terrorism and Islamism than concern himself with Egypt's domestic challenges – or US values at stake. He praised Sisi for forcefully taking control of Egypt, essentially blessing the crackdown that President Obama had condemned.feedback

Robert Springborg

The US military has long been pushing Egypt to 'go light and mobile'. The counter-terrorism campaign in the Sinai and in Egypt proper has not achieved its objectives, due largely to harsh methods, poor intelligence and the drivers of discontent intensifying. New military equipment will not impact these shortcomings.feedback

Mohamed Soltan

The very real human cost of embracing authoritarians is felt not only by so many Egyptians, but right here at home.feedback

Laura Massaro

The theory used to be that you couldn't win major titles until the age of 28. But El Sherbini won the world championships at 20, and now it feels like the tour is moving at the speed of light. After I lost to Gohar in Chicago the other week, I had to sit down with my coach for a serious chat about the way forward. These girls are so feisty, so physical, and they have no fear. If you don't keep raising your own intensity, you get left behind.feedback

Mohamed Soltan

Mohamed Soltan is a human rights advocate and founder of theFreedomi.org. He was imprisoned in Egypt for 22 months.feedback

Rick Levin - Coursera

In Pakistan, Egypt, Mongolia, Malaysia, Kazakhstan and Singapore we have relationships with the governments, where we're actually using our courses to help them develop their workforce and 'upskill'. We have one such example in the state of Maine. There's a tremendous opportunity in the United States through state workforce development programs … and there should be some opportunities in the upcoming tax-reform bill, should it happen.feedback

Steffen Dyck - Moody's

The implementation of the targets of the IMF programme–including reductions in fiscal deficits and government debt levels, as well as improvements in Egypt's external liquidity position–will help address Egypt's key credit challenges. However, ambitious fiscal consolidation targets will be challenging to achieve and could face implementation risks in a scenario of mounting public discontent.feedback

Nick Varney - Merlin Entertainments

It definitely does have an effect. As I look at the bookings for this year, we're in the second year of a massive German staycation boom. All our parks are full – in Denmark, Germany and Italy – because the Germans decided to stay home because they weren't going to Tunisia, Egypt or any of their traditional locations. If you get a big hit in a market like London, then it's difficult. I don't think they want to. I think what they would say is that the current arrangement is one that they like as they found to their own cost that they're not theme park operators.feedback

Tarek el Khatib

I'm neither sad nor disappointed. This is a clear message to all Egyptians that no one will be held accountable for any corruption or oppression in this country – the state is loyal to its men and will continue to be. Don't dream of any revolution again.feedback

El Massry

I think that Mubarak's release was something expected as his students are ruling the country. The same regime, the same corruption, the same brutality.feedback

Mai el Sedany

The Mubarak acquittal is of significant symbolic value in that it reflects an absolute failure of Egyptian judicial and legal institutions to hold a single official accountable for the killing of almost 900 protesters during the January 25 Revolution. It is indicative of a deeper, compounded crisis of transitional justice.feedback

El Massry

Mubarak might be released, but in the eyes of those who believe in the revolution he will always be a criminal killer and the godfather of corruption. This might be another round that we have lost, but we will keep on fighting to change the inhuman regime that releases criminals and imprisons innocent people.feedback

Ahmed Harara

At this point, I really don't care. At least we have that. Politically it failed, but socially we won. Freedom is not just about walking down the street. It's about being free in your mind.feedback

Mohammed Shaikhibrahim - Euronews

Many ruins from ancient Egypt are still buried underground. One of the most successful civilisations known to humankind utilise symbols and secrets that remain a mystery.feedback

Khaled Abu Alela

The size of this statue shows the magnitude of the temple in ancient Egypt, because the statues length is about 8 meters, which means that the temple gate was at least 15 meters high.feedback

Samantha Bee

Think of them as passengers on a bus that's now being driven by a feral, paranoid monkey. They're not trying to kick him out of the driver's seat – they know we chose the monkey to be the bus driver because Hillary Clinton used e-mail and was a woman, and they respect that. They're just trying to turn the wheel slightly while the monkey is masturbating so we don't run over a cliff.feedback

Samantha Bee

But perhaps we should consider these leaks the phlegm of democracy. They're a sign that something is very wrong, yes, but also that your system is fighting it – like it's supposed to.feedback

Ahmed Nashaat

It is ridiculous how this keeps on happening. It is not hard to store biscuits and look at the expiration date.feedback
