Tailor-made UN Security Council resolutions to Israel's interests. By Amgad Rasmi in Al-Sharq Al-Awsat

"Egypt needed to bow to the demands of the 25 January Revolution and dissolve the NDP which was a black spot in the lives of all Egyptians for the last 35 years." -- Mohamed Mustafa Sherdi, Al-Wafd

"The 25 January Revolution is trying the country's former rulers by law, allowing them to hire lawyers, detaining them in air conditioned cells that has newspapers and plasma TV sets." -- Mohamed El-Shabba, Nahdet Masr

"Many voices are calling for quick solutions to chronic problems and looking for a magician government that can miraculously resolve all the problems." -- Anis Mansour , Al-Ahram

Bahrain does not require a foreign invasion to sort its present problems out. Political reform is possible and the regime can survive the current protests if it produces a framework for peace." -- Abdel-Bari Atwan , Al-Quds Al-Arabi

"Iran wants to use its influence and networks as much as possible to incite disturbances in Bahrain and Kuwait as part of its campaign to destabilise the entire region." -- Hoda Al-Husseini , Asharq Al-Awsat

"The current changes taking place in the Arab world are not temporary or incidental as some seem to believe, but structural and transformational and therefore, permanent. They won't go away as time goes by. On the contrary, they are developing fast, albeit to the contempt of some." -- Hamid Alkifaei, Al-Hayat
