Last quote about Egypt

Maya Foa
Today's verdict is long overdue. Ibrahim was arrested as a child for the 'crime' of attending a protest, tortured, and tried facing the death penalty alongside adults in an unfair mass trial. For years, these court proceedings – which were designed to punish political dissent – made a mockery of justice. The Irish government and others, like the UK, must now not rest until Ibrahim is at home in Ireland. The wider international community – including the EU, which helps to fund Egypt's courts – must also call urgently on Egypt to end its use of patently illegal mass trials.feedback

All quotes about Egypt

Mostafa Waziri

We are not sure if these mummies belong to Amenemhat and his family. Others have clearly reused this tomb and poked around in ancient times. That's probably why their heads are uncovered.feedback

Khaled el-Anani

We want tomorrow's newspapers to speak about Egypt and make people want to come to Egypt.feedback

Gianluca Petrachi

[President Urbano] Cairo gave me the all-clear to negotiate with the Rossoneri, but they tried to use Niang as part of their bid for Belotti. The offer was unsuitable.feedback

Khaled Alnani

It has significance in all fields. The work is not finished. We hope to be making a new announcement next month.feedback

Mostafa Waziry

This is a good sign. It means if we keep digging in this area we're going to find four more tombs.feedback

Zahi Hawass

Modern Egypt is built on top of ancient Egypt. Sometimes you excavate in your courtyard like in Aswan or Heliopolis and find monuments. Until now we've only found 30% of the Egyptian monuments; 70% is still buried.feedback

Zahi Hawass

You need to maintain these monuments. I used to spend 1.3bn Egyptian pounds a year in the construction of museums and restoring the monuments. You don't have this money now and the ministry is in a very critical condition.feedback

Habiba Shebita

It all started in the summer of 2013, when I had just finished high school and started to become politically aware. The whole transition there post-revolution scared me. It was frightening to see how the military had gained back control. I came up with this crazy idea to speak on the protest stage, as an Egyptian-American citizen. Mind you, this is very much out of my character. I'm never outspoken like that. Our bond developed from there. Within 10 months of his release, our relationship merged from professional to personal.feedback

Hanaa Soltan

I saw him in the prison, dying. He couldn't keep his own head up. Now he has a life.feedback

Omar Malek

When Mohamed heard my sentence, he was shaking the bars in the prison. I looked into his eyes and they had tears in them. He cried and screamed for me. I told him, Don't worry, my friend. I will not die. One day you will be married and I will come to your wedding.feedback

Habiba Shebita

We had been waiting to celebrate this moment for two years, but basically one of the first things he said to us when we got to Falls Church was, There are still people languishing in prison in Egypt. We have to help them.feedback

Habiba Shebita

I was traumatized over everything that had happened that summer in Egypt, and I didn't know how to deal with all the emotions. Mohamed's family created a Facebook page and I reached out to see what I could do to help.feedback

Peter Morris - David Wilson Homes

Qatar Airways has been particularly hit on markets to Saudi, Egypt, Bahrain, UAE, and Emirates on routes to the US.feedback

DJ Pandian - The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank

Investing in clean, renewable energy is a big part of our strategy to promote a sustainable and low-carbon future for Asia. We are supporting this project because it contributes to Egypt's renewable energy capacity, and it will help position the country as a regional energy hub, which will have economic benefits for the entire region.feedback

Khaled Ali

Sissi is using terrorism as an excuse to do whatever he wants. Now, he's trying to control the political scene in the name of fighting terrorism.feedback

Asmaa Naem

The arrest campaigns have become fiercer, and the numbers of people and groups being targeted are scary. This is reaching even apolitical people, not just those who are politically active.feedback

Asmaa Naem

There used to be harassment against us. Now, it's much more violent and apparent.feedback

Lina Attalah

Before the revolution, there was little margin in which we could operate as independent journalists or human rights defenders or women's rights activists. Right now, this margin is becoming tighter like no other time.feedback

Lina Attalah

Egypt was never a country that used to block websites. It was never like China or Syria.feedback

Nour Khalil

It means the death of civil society. But now our biggest hope is to find that person alive.feedback

Gamal Eid

The visit has emboldened the Arab rulers that whatever violations they commit against their people are going to be accepted by the Trump administration. This gave Sissi the green light to increase the repression. He's been empowered.feedback

Ahlam Saad

Given how expensive the cost of living has become and the increase in prices, people have started becoming more aware. They know they can afford to have one or two children, but no more.feedback

Hamad Kalkaba Malboum

We are talking with Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco – those countries have the facilities. I have very positive sounds from some of them. People said that Africa could not host the World Cup in football, but we did it very successfully.feedback

Jared Genser

The Trump administration should maintain its principled position and develop human rights benchmarks for Egypt to follow.feedback

Ashraf Ismail

Ancient Egypt meant many things for us; it meant cities, but also wilderness, and we wanted to show the diversity of this wilderness. And people, as they play the game and get into hours and hours of it, they're constantly seeing new stuff from the world and the environment.feedback

Ashraf Ismail

In terms of the granularity of the details, the experiences that you can have, the things you can run into, the NPCs, the animals, the fauna, it's much, much more dense. This is definitely, in terms of content, the biggest world we've ever built.feedback

Maxime Durand

When you compare the game's map to the real-world map, when you look at it very quickly, you feel like this is Egypt. The proportions make sense. You have the Nile to the east, you have the deserts down south and west, you have the Libyan Plateau out west of Alexandria. … But wherever you are in the world, you know where you're located. You have landmarks to look at and orient yourself. You can see some of the mountains to help you understand where you are. You can use the pyramids to know where you're at or the Lighthouse in Alexandria.feedback

Essam al-Marzouq

At our next meeting at the end of November...the most important items will concern the fate of the agreement to extend or terminate the production cut.feedback

Mona Prince

It reminds me of the women accused of being witches in Arthur Miller's The Crucible. I feel like I should be burned now. Paradise Lost is beautiful, it's a masterpiece, and I tried to compare it with Arabic literature so it would feel closer to my students. I asked them to read about the image of God and the image of Satan as presented in literary work. We weren't talking about religion, I made this clear to the students, we don't discuss religion in the classroom, we are talking about the representation of religious figures in literary works.feedback

Robert Satloff

It is unusual that the Trump administration would take a punitive measure against Egypt, given the president's outreach to President Sisi and his general embrace of this Egyptian government. I would not say reports of difficulties with Egypt's human rights situation or its connection with North Korea are new.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-Sisi. He's done a fantastic job in a very difficult situation. We are very much behind Egypt and the people of Egypt. The United States has, believe me, backing, and we have strong backing.feedback

Omar Abdelrasoul

We're trying to get people used to the idea of bitcoin, to ready the market so that in a couple of years we will reach a greater number of users. But for now we are trying to let people know what cryptocurrency is.feedback

Nitzan Chen

These remarks call into question the ability of Karram, the representative of a foreign network, to cover -- as a professional journalist -- the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in which, according to his own words, he is taking an active part.feedback

Angelino Alfano

In the light of developments made in cooperation between Italian and Egyptian investigators ... the government has decided to send ambassador Giampaolo Cantini to the Egyptian capital. The Italian government remains committed to shedding full light on the tragic disappearance of Giulio, by sending to Cairo an authoritative figure tasked with helping in seeking the truth.feedback

Waleed Al Hosani

The PLC aims to achieve several objectives by holding the Arabian Gulf Super Cup outside the country, Expanding the fan base of UAE football abroad, providing a platform for Emirati teams and players to showcase their skills abroad to reflect the progress of UAE football. These matches also contribute to attracting larger numbers of football fans in Egypt to learn more about UAE football and follow the PLC competitions.feedback

Lana Alamat

Legal problems only matter because there is a dollar value assigned to them. The first thing a startup thinks is not, Oh, I'm going to set up a company in Egypt to work in Egypt. It's, How can I get to work'?feedback

Angelino Alfano

The Italian government's commitment remains to clarify the tragic disappearance of Giulio. Sending an authoritative liaison (ambassador) will help, through contacts with the Egyptian authorities, to reinforce judicial cooperation and as a consequence the search for the truth.feedback

Giuseppe Pignatone

Both sides agreed that the investigative activity and collaboration will continue until the truth about all of the circumstances that led to the kidnapping and death of Giulio Regeni is discovered.feedback

Abdelrahman al-Habrouk

The idea is that I'm trying to make the art live longer. I wanted to make something good out of something that is considered harmful.feedback

Fahmy Ragab Mohamed

The Grand Sheikh … encouraged scholars and preachers to go out to where the youth are, in coffee shops, forums and institutions. Young scholars sat with them … and corrected some of their opinions and thoughts and that is a very good thing.feedback

Yasmin Minutallah

She doesn't know whether to believe in god or not. She is asking god for things and some happen and some don't, even though god is supposed to answer prayers.feedback

Emad Abdel Nabi Mahmoud

Imagine liquor, it is banned by Islamic law … but is acceptable when it belongs to non-Muslims. This is just one of many examples where Islam is building a correct and cohesive society … despite people's differences and background.feedback

Ali Mostafa

They would be afraid of saying anything. The aim is to get closer to the people … gaining confidence, gaining trust. We try to mend the problem by coming to where the people are, to correct their understanding. Our offices are far away [but] here we are accessible to people. We reached the people.feedback

Michael Saad

By using this programme, our main goal is to show that the disabled are proactive individuals in society, that the disabled are in need of some support in order for them to become proactive and productive.feedback

Nady Helmy

Disability is psychological not physical. When you begin working on your career you will feel like you were dead and that you came back to life.feedback

Mohsen Adel

A committee will be set up in the stock market within a few days to work on attracting new companies ... by informing them of the benefits of registering. I expect the listing of three to five new companies in the stock market before the end of this year, between medium and large-sized ones.feedback

Ayoub Kara

Lately, almost all countries in our region have determined that Al Jazeera supports terrorism – supports religious radicalisation. Gulf States, including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt. We also intend to join them at a summit focused on regional, political, economic and even defence agreements.feedback

James M. Wilce

Be prepared for something that is not stereotypical, modern, Protestant or dry-eyed. Be prepared to be overcome.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.feedback

William Jackson - Capital Economics

The concern I would have is that it will be costly to develop the area in terms of building the infrastructure, etc. yet the hurdles to making it successful are quite high – including improving access to visas and relaxing more conservative social laws in the country. That depends on how far the authorities are willing to go, and the extent to which they face a backlash. Moreover, tourism in this region will face strong competition from Dubai and – depending on the security situation – Egypt too.feedback

Ali Alwaleed al-Thani - World Trade Organization

Obviously all options are available. But we have not raised a consultation request with Egypt yet.feedback

Ali Alwaleed al-Thani - World Trade Organization

If it is self-regulating, that is a danger to the entire multilateral trading system itself. And we believe the WTO will take that into consideration.feedback

Ali Alwaleed al-Thani - World Trade Organization

The consultation request is to discuss and clarify the legality of these measures and find a way to bring them into conformity with their commitments. We have always called for dialogue, for negotiations, and this is part of our strategy to talk to the members concerned and to gain more information on these measures, the legality of these measures, and to find a solution to resolve the dispute.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

We call on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt to ease the blockade against Qatar. There are humanitarian consequences to this blockade.feedback

Fawwaz Khan

Not happy at all! What is going on with my sisters flight? Evacuation, stranded, no info!feedback

Wendy Derek - Twitter

This was not a controlled evacuation, it was an emergency one with people getting injured. They then left people standing by the plane.feedback

Claire McIlroy

Sister's family stuck, brother-in-law injured during evacuation! More information on twitter than your rep is telling them!feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

We blocked the border not only in Egypt but in the Golan Heights. We built the wall because there was a problem with ISIS [Islamic State/IS] and Iran trying to build a terror front there. I told [Russian President] Putin, when we see them [Iran/IS] transferring weapons to Hezbollah, we will hurt them. We did it dozens of times. It's not about my interest. I'm talking about Europe's interest.feedback

Timothy Kaldas

A lack of popularity will always have some effect on stability. But Mubarak was unpopular for well over a decade and stayed in power with little meaningful challenge until 2011.feedback

Tony Pulis

We're pleased he's here, he's a good addition. He's got good pedigree and has played for some good clubs. Hopefully he'll be a good signing for us. With it being a loan and, if he does well, we've already agreed a final deal. It's really, really good for us.feedback

John Williams - Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco

We're delighted to add Ahmed to the squad. He caught our eye at the African championships and we've been tracking him ever since.feedback

Atef Asker

Allah, peace be upon him, has ordered us to have the prayer led by a man and not a woman. It's not about being strict or not, it's about following an order.feedback

Ahmed Abu Zeid

It is unacceptable for the coalition to have amongst its members states that support terrorism or advocate for it in their media. The decision by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain to boycott Qatar – a coalition member – is in accordance with that principle.feedback

Cambrie Schroder

The world of fashion has changed. The most in-demand models have a famous last name.feedback

Ghazi Hamad - Hamas

What is happening now among Arab countries is that someone is trying to change the political dynamic in the region, and this instability is not good for us and other countries although it benefits Israel. There are countries that want Gaza to be part of the regional equation, others that want to shut gates or punish Hamas. We understand the contradictions. If you have good relations with Qatar, Egypt will be angry. If you have good relations with Iran, Saudi will be angry.feedback

Mokhtar Awad

If this continues, they will single-handedly guarantee that no one will take [the Egyptian government's] claims seriously ever again.feedback

Michele Dunne

The state of human rights in Egypt is so egregious that it becomes very difficult to work with the government without in some way being complicit.feedback

Michael Wahid Hanna

Let us unite and be hand in hand in the face of terrorism.feedback

Daniel Benjamin

I think it would be an incredibly stupid thing to do … the top reason being that it's not a terrorist group.feedback

Michele Dunne

It's an impoverished country, and to throw that kind of money at public relations is severely misguided. They are the scum of the Earth. And if there is ever a hell, I hope there is a special place there reserved just for them.feedback

Lucia Parrucci

This is all because of the recent cooperation that is taking place between Egypt and China. We believe that 90 per cent of them left since then.feedback

Muhammed Emin Nurmuhammed

They were scared because the Chinese government told everyone who is studying Islamic studies to come back. They were worried about getting arrested in Cairo but they decided because they knew that if they go to China, they will definitely get arrested.feedback

Muhammed Emin Nurmuhammed

I spoke to one wife who said she was hiding on the roof of their home because she doesn't know where to go. And I spoke to another one who was just walking around the neighbourhood. They are panicking.feedback

Fawzi Barhoum - Hamas

We considers it a criminal, terrorist, and cowardly attack that doesn't target Egypt only, but the security and stability of the entire Arab nation.feedback

Jason Hall-Spencer

The primary cause of the invasion of jellyfish is the Suez Canal. Other ecosystem stressors have allowed them to thrive and become a plague.feedback

Mostafa Fouda

It is not the first time it appears on Egypt's north coast. This time the number was just larger than previous years.feedback

Sigmar Gabriel

We now have this opportunity to reach good results for the benefit of the whole region. The matter is not related only to the sovereignty of Qatar. We have to come back to common work at the GCC and for the Europeans this is a very important matter. For us, the GCC is the guarantor of stability and security in the region.feedback

Akram Attallah

I believe relations between Egypt and Hamas have taken a big move. For the first time, we can say there is joint action between the two sides, a joint cooperation. That has never been official since the Hamas movement was founded 30 years ago.feedback

Denys Johnson-Davies

Arab writing? There ain't such a thing! For them, it was the Arabian Nights and that was it.feedback

Tawfiq Abu Naeem

These measures serve as a message of assurance to the Egyptian side.feedback

Akram Attallah

Dahlan employed this moment to present himself as the most efficient party in the Palestinian arena and a saviour for Hamas.feedback

Ahmed Abu Zeid

At the invitation of (Egyptian) Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, there will be a quartet meeting of the foreign ministers of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in Cairo on Wednesday July 5 to follow up on the developing situation regarding relations with Qatar.feedback

Sinisa Mihajlovic

What I always say to him – and what I told [Christian] Vieri – is don't lose your head; sacrifice, keep improving, don't lose than hunger that made you the player you've been recently.feedback

Sinisa Mihajlovic

Will he stay? I hope so and so does [president Urbano] Cairo who isn't thinking of selling him. Then there's the €100m release clause. If someone pays it then a flood of money will arrive, but then we'd have to change the way we play.feedback

Mokhtar Awad

It is very likely that in Egypt, as in other countries targeting Isis sympathisers, the wide net cast may have caught people who either had little to do with the charges or were simply expressing radical views – or what the government sees as radical views – online. The wider the net is cast, the more difficult the process gets, because there would be simply too many people to properly assess. As a result, some fall through the cracks and leave from prison straight to Isis.feedback

Amani Othman

Last Eid, state security stormed our house at 2am, long after the arrest of our two sons. The police officer asked me where are your sons. I replied – where are my sons? One you took a year ago and the other last week!feedback

Amani Othman

He still gets his pocket money from me, so I don't know how he has the money to be funding Isis.feedback

Fareed Zakaria

I've been stunned by the outpouring of hate over the last year. My Twitter feed was probably 2 percent racist or bigoted: go back to India, or they don't know where I'm from, so India, Egypt, Indonesia, whatever. And often very colorful language. In the last year it's gone up to 20 percent, 25 percent.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Qatar has begun its careful review and consideration of a series of requests presented by Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and UAE. While some of the elements will be very difficult for Qatar to meet, there are significant areas which provide a basis for on-going dialogue leading to resolution. We believe our allies and partners are stronger when they are working together towards one goal which we all agree is stopping terrorism and countering extremism. Each country involved has something to contribute to that effort. A lowering of rhetoric would also help ease the tension.feedback

Sasha Toperich

With ISIS branches operating in Sinai, I think it's about time for the U.S. to extend its support to [Egyptian] President Sissi's efforts to fight these destabilizing elements.feedback

Amr Kotb

The reality is that much more must happen ... in order to combat sectarianism in the country, and it is important that United States officials continue to insist on this fact publicly and in private.feedback

Allison McManus

The average monthly rate of terror attacks nationwide more than doubled from 2013 to 2016, with increased sectarian attacks and targeting of civilians.feedback

Amr Kotb

The U.S. relies on a stable Egypt for a wide range of priorities, as Egypt is a fulcrum for regional stability given its strategic location and size. As far as many U.S. policymakers are concerned, continued U.S. engagement in Egypt today is a byproduct of the belief that if Egypt falls, so will the rest of the region. A re-examination of America's relationship with Egypt, particularly with regard to funding, is long overdue ... the country is dealing with a real insurgency in North Sinai, one which the security assistance package has failed to properly equip the Egyptians to combat.feedback

Bob Bradley

When I went to Egypt my assistant and right hand man, Diaa, had told me about the young players he had just taken the team to Colombia for the Under 20 World Cup. After the Port Said massacre, the league had been stopped and players were not being paid. There was a lot of turmoil. So we started to hold some camps and organise friendly matches so we could look closely at the players. It gave us a chance to look at some of the youngsters Diaa thought so highly of. Salah was among them.feedback

Bob Bradley

Salah played for Arab Contractors in Cairo at that time. When I first saw him play for his club you could see his ability to get away from defenders, but in a young team the results were not there.feedback

Daoud Kuttab

The best response to content that is unfavorable is to produce content with an opposing view, not to punish the media.feedback

Avigdor Lieberman

Hurt Hamas and drag it to war with Israel. Abbas is doing this unilaterally, without having coordinated with Israel or Egypt.feedback

Khalil al-Hayya

We in Hamas do not initiate wars and we do not expect one; this is our political assessment. We do not expect war because we are not interested and the occupation [Israel] also say they are not interested.feedback

Khalil al-Hayya

Securing borders is a joint interest. We are keen and we have the determination and the ability to prevent any harm to reach out for Egypt from Gaza.feedback

Osama Ghoneim

The tests showed traces of banned substances and the five were suspended temporarily until the completion of hearings. We are currently conducting the hearings and they have been summoned. But some of them failed to attend the investigation and we gave them 10 more days to attend or face the consequences.feedback

Mohamed Dayri

Help would come through a lifting of the embargo on weapons, so our army can receive material and weapons, so as to deal with this rampant terrorism.feedback

Martin Dempsey - US Army

I said, OK Cal, now that we've got this behind us, how about you stop worrying about that? We'll keep worrying about that, you go win us a gold medal.feedback

Peter Bergen

He was early to point out that the Muslim Brotherhood is a moderating force in the Middle East, and that, of course, is not how it's interpreted in Saudi Arabia, where it's banned, or in Egypt, where it's criminalized.feedback

Osama Sharshar

We are extremely sad and shocked. I think Sisi will formalize the transfer soon, and that is why it was rammed through the Parliament.feedback

Anissa Hassouna

The speaker of Parliament suddenly ended the discussion and announced it had been approved.feedback

Michael Wahid Hanna

This gives an assessment of opposition strength in Egypt and what it might become. The answer is, not much.feedback

Ashkan Afshin

Excess body weight is one of the most challenging public health problems of our time, affecting nearly one in every three people. Over the past decade, numerous interventions have been evaluated, but very little evidence exists about their long-term effectiveness.feedback

Martin Dempsey - US Army

So while we are very much aware of the challenges of security in Egypt, we have concluded that the venue – that is to say where the games will be played, the hotel, the transit zones – will be secured adequately and gives us confidence to send a team over there.feedback

John Calipari

I'm trying to figure out basketball, let alone trying to figure out security and so all I can say to the parents is I'm comfortable making this trip. And believe me, three or four weeks ago I was like, Come on now, talk to me, how are we going to do this?' And from that point when I was on the phone with Gen. Dempsey, I knew at the end of the day either he was going to feel real comfortable with what was going on or we wouldn't go.feedback

Kevin Durant

I'm sure they've been doing their work for years in advance on this thing and trying to make sure it's perfect for the players, so I have no concerns that USA Basketball won't get it done. So hopefully everybody's comfortable going and have a great time and win a gold.feedback

Boris Johnson

Qatar is a partner of the UK in the fight against terrorism but they urgently need to do more to address support for extremist groups, building on the steps they have already taken to tackle funding to those groups. I am also concerned by some of the strong actions which Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain have taken against an important partner, and urge them to ease the blockade on Qatar. I call on all states to take immediate steps to de-escalate the situation and to find a rapid resolution through mediation.feedback

Mudassir Sheikha - Careem

Military intelligence is a relevant stakeholder in this topic because government wants to ensure the service is being run in a secure manner. I am hearing this from you now.feedback

Claire Lauterbach - Privacy International

It's hard to imagine a legitimate reason for having this kind of extensive data on people's movements, unless it's part of a broader surveillance effort. And given Egypt's human rights record, that's not a very positive sign.feedback

Matt Kallman - Uber

We do not and have never provided any government with real-time access to riders' data, and we'll always fight to protect their privacy.feedback

Khaled Atraby

They wanted to know why I posted sympathetic comments about people who had disappeared into custody.feedback

Thomas Cochran

They didn't want to do it with the Russians and didn't want to do it while they were negotiating the Iran deal. It would provide energy and jobs and so forth for countries like Egypt and others in the region, so that these young men have got something more useful to do than go out and shoot each other.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

We call on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt to ease the blockade on Qatar. We're seeing shortages of food [in Qatar], families are being forcibly separated, and children pulled out of school - we believe these are unintended consequences, especially during this holy month of Ramadan, but they can be addressed immediately.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Our expectation is that these countries will immediately take steps to de-escalate the situation and put forth a good faith effort to resolve their grievances they have with each other. We call on the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt to ease the blockade against Qatar.feedback

Christophe Salmon

The developments in Qatar have so far not impacted at all our trading business. It's much too early to say if there could be a disruption. We generally see any geopolitical event as an opportunity for trading rather than a threat. The LNG market is an oversupplied market ... the main focus is to secure customers. Egypt has been a very good business for us - both on the gas and products side. Last year we had a very significant market share in Egypt. It is lower this year. It's a profitable business but not without a risk, credit risk.feedback

Nikolai von Stieglitz

With fewer than 10 minutes remaining in the game we were astonished by the introduction of the fabulously miniature Arnaud Séka, replacing Nouhoum Kobéna. Listed at just 5ft 1in, the remarkably tricksy attacking player had little time to influence the result in a rather humdrum 1-0 loss to the Super Eagles, courtesy of a Yakubu penalty, but he was majestic to watch. Séka went on to play a further 20 minutes as a substitute during the 2-0 loss to Egypt, taking the place of Mickaël Poté. Surely he deserves an honourable mention on your list (here's a video – featuring a wonderful dinked goal)?feedback

Mohamed Hasehm

Cutting relations is a must because Qatar, Turkey and Iran support the terrorism that we face. It is a given. Relations must be ended.feedback

Mohammed al-Iraqi

Egyptians are scared. They have jobs and a stable life here with their families. There is a state of panic.feedback

Johannes Krause

There was no detectable change for those 1,800 years of Egyptian history. The big change happened between then and now.feedback

Oliver Dlouhý

Ticket prices are always fluctuating for different reasons. Some of the changes from one year to the next can be attributed to factors from fuel prices to socio-political shifts such as Brexit and general elections. Egypt and Turkey, for example, saw a decrease in ticket prices because of a decrease in demand as a result of regional turmoil.feedback

George Soros

Most Europeans of my generation were supporters of further integration. Subsequent generations came to regard the EU as an enemy that deprives them of a secure and promising future. Externally, the EU is surrounded by hostile powers – Putin's Russia, Erdogan's Turkey, Sisi's Egypt and the America that Trump would like to create but can't. Internally, the European Union has been governed by outdated treaties ever since the financial crisis of 2008. These treaties have become less and less relevant to prevailing conditions.feedback

George Soros

Externally, the EU is surrounded by hostile powers – [Vladimir] Putin's Russia, [Recep Tayyip] Erdoğan's Turkey, [Abdel-Fatah al-] Sisi's Egypt and the America that [Donald] Trump would like to create if he could, but can't.feedback

Johannes Krause

There has been much discussion about the genetic ancestry of ancient Egyptians. Are modern Egyptians direct descendants of ancient Egyptians? Was there genetic continuity in Egypt through time? Did foreign invaders change the genetic make-up: for example, did Egyptians become more 'European' after Alexander the Great conquered Egypt? Ancient DNA can address those questions. The big change happened between then and now.feedback

Ahmad Messmari

The air strikes are joint ones between the Libyan National Army and Egyptian army.feedback

Johannes Krause

The other big surprise, was we didn't find much sub-Saharan African ancestry. We see exactly the opposite. In the last 1,500 years, Egypt became more African, if you want. The other big question is, Where did the ancient Egyptians come from?feedback

David O'Brien - Ryanair

Given the terrorist attacks and a big shift in capacity from North Africa Egypt and Turkey into Spain creating overcapacity, it was a good year.feedback

Mohammed Zaree

This is a complete disaster. They have taken away everything. It's over. It's not just human rights organizations – they are also going after charities and any organized group they do not already control.feedback

Amy Hawthorne

Egypt and other regimes like Bahrain definitely feel they have a green light from Trump to undertake repressive actions in the name of counterterrorism and to anticipate that the Trump administration will not issue a word of criticism. We have a terrible experience of seeing what happens when authoritarian regimes crush that space between citizens and the state. It's what happened under Qaddafi in Libya, and it's what happened under Saddam Hussein in Iraq. And it never leads to stability.feedback

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
