From CNN, thanks to Bruce Wolman:

[1] Saudi King Abdullah called Mubarak and “was reassured” about the situation in Egypt, the state-run Saudi Press Agency reported.

“During the call, the king said, ‘Egypt is a country of Arabism and Islam. No Arab and Muslim human being can bear that some infiltrators, in the name of freedom of expression, have infiltrated into the brotherly people of Egypt, to destabilize its security and stability and they have been exploited to spew out their hatred in destruction, intimidation, burning, looting and inciting a malicious sedition,'” the news agency said…

[2] Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas called Mubarak and “affirmed his solidarity with Egypt and his commitment to its security and stability,” according to the official Palestinian news agency, Wafa.

[3] In Iran, meanwhile, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Egyptian authorities should respect the demonstrators.

“Iran expects Egyptian officials to listen to the voice of their Muslim people, respond to their rightful demands and refrain from exerting violence by security forces and police against an Islamic wave of awareness that has spread through the country in form of a popular movement,” the state-run Press TV quoted Mehmanparast as saying.
