Mohammad ElBaradei

“We must abandon the unworkable notion that it is morally reprehensible for some countries to pursue weapons of mass destruction, yet morally acceptable for others to rely on them for security—and indeed to continue to refine their capacities and postulate plans for their use.”

Mohamed ElBaradei was head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, during which time he earned the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize for his work in nuclear disarmament. He returned to his home country and protested the regime of Hosni Mubarak, and was a leading figure after the ouster of Mohamed Morsi. He was a Presidential candidate in post-Morsi Egypt and Vice President of the new government. He resigned his position as Vice President in response to human rights violations by the new regime.

He continues to be a voice of reason and democracy in the Arab world.
