Egypt is an African country, not a Middle Eastern country. Most don’t realize that. The Middle East ties Europe to Asia. Egypt connects the Middle East to Africa. It has the Suez Canal, which allows transportation of goods from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea, so you don’t have to go around Africa to get to Europe from India and China. Egypt has the Nile River, which connects to most of the African continent, through lakes. The Nile flows north into Egypt. It runs through Sudan and other ancient cities. Africa’s history flows into Egypt from these places. Silt from the rivers from all over Africa made the Great Pyramids. Egypt is the Center of the World for history, religion, and commerce. Think of the importance of Egypt geographically, socially, economically, ethnically and religiously.
A simple thought.
