„We affirm our position again against terror and violence. We will continue to fight the scourge of terrorism against humanity and reject the culture of extremism and violence in any form or shape, from whatever source or place, regardless of justifications or motives, being fully aware of their danger as a plague that threatens the peace and stability of the whole world.
We will use all the power of the law to prevent support reaching illegal organizations, including terrorist groups.“
— Hosni Mubarak
