  • Responding to a question regarding whether or not Egyptian men who marry Israeli women should have their Egyptian citizenship revoked, Amin stated "Everything should be taken from them, not just their citizenship."
  • In response to a question about the right of homosexuals to marry and adopt children, Amin stated "All their rights should be shattered to pieces".
  • Amin expressed support for Egypt and Iran acquiring nuclear weapons, arguing that "As a deterrent. I support Egypt's policy of turning the Middle East into a nuclear-free zone. But if a country like Israel has nuclear weapons, it has a deterrent, and all of us Arabs are afraid of it."[1]
