Congratulations to the People of Egypt - May the Transition Be Peaceful and Fruitful

A Personal message to the people of Egypt

I would like to congratulate the people of Egypt for their determination to bring about peaceful change to their country and to begin what we all hope will be a more prosperous future for all Egyptians. This revolution would have made even the Founding Fathers of US proud. A truly historic moment in Middle Eastern political history, which has echoed the fall of the Berlin Wall that led to a seismic shift throughout vast swathes of central and eastern Europe.

Already your actions have propelled others into action in countries like Yemen, Algeria & Jordan who seek a more equal, fair and democratic society.

Also I would like to take this moment to praise al-Jazeera's coverage of the events in Egypt that have taken place over the last 18 days. The network has provided unrivalled coverage of this historic moment in the countries proud history and continues in my opinion to be the leader in the field of providing international affairs news.
