It is an honor and I am proud to be an Egyptian and blessed with belonging to this immaculate land, the land of peace and love and the great masses of the Egyptian youth who made a great revolution in the twenty-fifth of January 2011 against corruption by their peaceful and civilized manners joins me in this sense. I am happy in this context to mention some of the expressions of admiration that came out of the international community toward the Egyptian People's Revolution:

"Because for the first time we see people erupts and then clean up the streets after that," - CNN U.S...Not something new happens in Egypt, Egyptians as usual always make history - Silvion Berlusconi - the former Italian Prime Minister
It was from the early results of that revolution, the selection of university leadership election, was the late Mr. Alaa Fayez first elected president of Ain Shams University, which we lost him after a tragic accident.
