Egyptian Society: Traditional Middle Eastern Values Blended with Western Beliefs Amongst the turbid and dysfunction that is the Middle East lies the nation of Egypt. Egypt, a major country of the Middle East, is habitually considered stereotypical of Middle Eastern civilization, but further research guides one to the conclusion that Egypt is far from a generic Middle Eastern country. Egypt has a strong tradition of nationalism that has been formed during its history, giving it a national unity that is often non-existent in other Middle Eastern nations (1). This, as well as other advantages that Egypt has gained during its past, has allowed it to rise above the problems plaguing the rest of the Middle East and to form basically its

are citizens (Aaiusaorg, 2016). Arab Americans origins can be traced back to several continents. Essentially, they descended from twenty different countries (Sue & Sue, 2015, p. 575). Their main language is Arabic with a variance of regional or colloquial Arabic, which is spoken in different areas. To be more specific, even though the main language is Arabic, with the dialect there is a change of several forms within the language: vocabulary can be completely different from region to region, grammar also, and of course the change of accent dealing with vocalization and pronunciation parameters. A Moroccan could understand a Syrian; on the other hand the reversal of a Syrian trying to listen to a Moroccan’s long story would be impossible. The following are the different dialects: Egyptian, North African, Khalijji or Gulf and Levantine. The Levantine dialect comprises Jordan, Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Israel. Some dialects are better known and understood for their popular use in films (Egyptian) and songs (Levantine) (Lingualy, 2015). There is a formal standardized Arabic language called Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) used for literary writing of books, newspapers and formal letters. There is an older version of Arabic, Classical Arabic known as Quranic Arabic is still being spoken today; it is also used for literary writing and
Ancient Egypt and modern day America hold many similarities. In terms of roots in society, both Egypt and America started out as simple agrarian societies. America was rooted in agricultural success in its early life before it advanced towards a more industrialized one in the 1760s to the 1820-40s. Both Egypt and America also, alongside the agrarian heritage, were multiracial and multicultural in essence. Due to Egypt being situated in Africa, it supplied America with slaves as much as the rest of the continent did. Egypt’s African roots also added to the heritage and ultimate inhabitants of the nation, but the rulers and royalty always held
In Syria, Arabic is the most widely spoken language. Language is also based on where they live. For example: in the mountains, Jabal al-Druze is spoken; Bedawi Arabic is spoken by the nomads; and in Damascus Palestinian and Iraqi Arabic is spoken. Also, Aramaic was spoken before Arabic, and Arabic is not native to anyone in Syria. -> -> -> America is a very diverse country. There are many types of languages spoken there. There is no official language in America, but some states consider it to be English. But the most common languages are Spanish and English. Compared to America, Syria has an official language, but different types of it. America has a lot of different languages spoken because of its great diversity.

Out of all the countries in Africa, Egypt is one of the countries that stands out the most because of its cultural significance. Egypt has been around for about 30 centuries and it was one of the most prominent civilization in the Mediterranean world. Ancient Egypt also being one of the earliest civilizations, greatly influenced later cultures in Africa. The culture of Egypt has been labeled as “enigmatic” because of its rich ideas of how they pursue their cultural preferences. Throughout the years, Egypt has spread its cultural propensity and values through the development of cultural appearance, religion, and art.
Ancient Egypt is memorialized for its opulent history and culture along with the unique and defining burial practices. Ancient Egyptian religion was a very intricate yet complex way of belief. Egyptian religion was based on the worship and fellowship of many God’s who were believed to have a constant and ever being control of all earthly elements. The legends of these gods were to foretell and explain the influences of the forces they represented. The actual practice of Egyptian religion was an effort by both Pharaoh and nobles to provide both offerings and rule for the gods and gain their favor in hopes that their soul would live on in the afterlife. A piece of Egyptian religion are the Ancient Pyramids, these tombs were just the
Egypt is one of the oldest civilizations to exist, originating back to about 8000 BCE, and it is currently the second most populated country in Africa. Almost all of those who live in Egypt live near the Nile River, due to the harsh environment within the Sahara Desert which was
In ancient Egypt, scarabs (a sacred large dung beetle from the Mediterranean area) first appeared in the late Old Kingdom (c. 2575–c. 2130 BCE) and were used for the living, as a sign of good luck. Then when they evolved from the so-called button seals scarabs, they remained rare until Middle Kingdom times (1938–c. 1630 BCE). This was because they were now being associated with the afterlife and death. Some were used simply as ornaments and decoration, while others were purely sacred in purpose, such as the large basalt “heart scarabs” of the New Kingdom (1539–1075 BCE). Later they were also placed in the bandages of mummies and were symbolically identified with the heart of the deceased. (Lace, William. Mummification and Death Rituals of Ancient
As the Islamic empire spread so did their laws. They made Arabic the spoken language. So it was easier to communicate.
To be considered Arab, you or your ancestors live or lived in the Arab world and speak Arabic. The “Arab world” is made up of 22 states and territories whom are part of the Arab League. However many people in these states do not consider themselves Arab, thus the Arabic language is the unifying factor among the Arabic people. A lot of the individuals who speak Arabic today are very diverse. There is a myriad of dialects of Arabic and over 150 million people speak it. Twenty-five countries consider Arabic an official language (even if few are fluent in it). They vary from African to West Asian countries, however Arabs also live as minorities in many other nations. For example, the United States (Banks, 2009).
