Imam Khomeini mentioned Egypt in many speeches. He praised the revolutionaries of this country, especially those who took part in the assassination of Anwar Sadat

  “I am hopeful that other countries will pay attention; will follow the Iranian nation. Egypt, do not be satisfied with your oppressive government which states that it will destroy anyone who uses the name of Islam. Know that Islam is in danger in Egypt. It is obligatory for Egyptian men and women to rise and destroy this government who has announced that it is at war with Islam.” (Sahifah-i Imam, v.15, p.318)

“This second president that has been forced on the nation [Hosni Mubarak] imagines that he will reign in Egypt as the other one [Anwar Sadat] did. Before he became president he announced his solidarity with Israel and America. He overlooked that the people threw his predecessor into hell; they will do the same to him. Egypt must know that if they rise as Iran rose they will be successful. The Egyptian nation should not fear martial law; should disregard it just as Iran broke the martial law and came into the streets. The Egyptian scholars should stand up and defend Islam.” (Sahifah-i Imam, v.15, p.285)
