Quotes of the Day

“Israel and US’s friends are seeking to convince the whole world that what’s happening in Egypt is nothing but a humanitarian revolution. The truth is declared, however, by the protesters themselves through their slogans, blood, smiles, madness and stances. They obviously say that their revolution is actually all this. This means that we’re before a complete revolution for the poor, the free, the students, the freedom seekers, the people who reject subordination to the American and Israeli will. We’re before a humanitarian, social and political revolution against everything, against oppression and corruption but also against the regime’s policies towards the Arab-Israeli conflict.”

"The United States is trying to contain the revolution and improve its own ugly image in the Middle East and Islamic world ... after years of backing the worst dictatorships our region has ever seen. But be sure that regimes allied with the United States and Israel cannot stand long against the will of the people."

- Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah, speaking at length on Egypt's revolution

"This is the revolution of the youth of the Internet and now the revolution of all Egyptians..."

"I want to say to every mother and every father that lost his child, I am sorry, but this is not our fault. I swear to God, this is not our fault. It is the fault of everyone who was holding on to power greedily and would not let it go."

- Google exec Wael Ghonim, upon being released from 12 days in Egyptian detention
