By Walter Pincus Ban Ki-moon, the U.N. secretary-general, and Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's president, delivered surprisingly effective messages at the recent summit of Non-Aligned Movement nations in Tehran - despite Washington's unease at their even attending the Iran-hosted event. Washington's initial reaction was to praise Morsi for speaking strongly against Iran's ally, Syrian President Bashir al-Assad. Ban also won praise for calling on Tehran to adhere to Security Council resolutions limiting its nuclear program.

Family disputes are settled differently in Egypt than they are in the United States, a key government informant said yesterday while testifying for the fifth day in the Fort Dix terrorism trial. "When two families are in a dispute, they shoot each other," Egyptian native Mahmoud Omar told a U.S. District Court jury during a day of cross-examination by the lawyer for the lead defendant in the case. Omar, 39, was attempting to explain two recorded conversations in which he discussed a business dispute between his family and another back home.

After watching horrifying images of four recent bloody suicide bombings, many Americans must be wondering: Is it even safe for President Clinton to travel to Egypt and Israel? But precautions for the most heavily protected world leader will be extraordinary at tomorrow's antiterrorism summit in Egypt, as well as in Jerusalem, which Clinton will visit tomorrow night and Thursday. Security experts say that while there are risks, it's unlikely the President faces undue danger.

They want to go topless in Egypt - not the country, the nightclub. The Delaware Avenue disco has applied for an adult-cabaret permit in a case that is upsetting neighborhood groups and placing a spotlight on campaign contributions received by Mayor Street. Egypt, on the ground floor of an eight-story building that also houses city offices, applied once before, in 1993, to host adult entertainment - including the display of "uncovered buttocks" and bare breasts - but withdrew the application.

Owners of the Egypt nightclub on Delaware Avenue hope this weekend brings the smell of success. That would be a nice change from the stink-bomb stench that has soured the place every weekend since it opened Nov. 17. Hope for change comes from allegations filed with the district attorney's office yesterday charging an ex-worker at a rival nightclub with harassment, a misdemeanor. Peter Holtan, 25, of Green Street near 18th, is accused in a private criminal complaint. Egypt co-owner Joseph Grasso said security guards caught Holtan red-handed Saturday night as he poured vile-smelling liquid from a Coors Light beer bottle onto the carpeting.

Thursday's court referrals escalate the unfolding standoff between Egypt's new Islamist president and his opponents in the media.
