The struggling economy meant that many lower class Egyptians resorted to menial jobs and the dysfunctional government prevented any real change from taking place. These issues led to a slew of other problems, such as the exploitation of women and the growth of violent Islamist groups. While numbers do help show the dire state of Egypt, it takes a film like “The Yacoubian Building” to truly illustrate the pitiful nature of the country. It comes of no surprise then that Egypt saw a rise in emigration during this time period, as professionals saw no real positive future in Egypt. This outlook could be summed up in one exchange between Buthayna and Zaki. When asked about wanting to visit other countries and if she hates her homeland, she responded “I have no reason to love it”, and who could fault her? (“The Yacoubian
Egypt- The Five Themes of Geography Egypt is a land of rich culture, society, religion, customs, and prosperity. Tourists flock over in floods to marvel at the wonders of Egypt: the pyramids, the temples, the Sphinx, and the fortresses. But if the Egyptians hadn’t been lucky to stumble upon the land of Egypt, there would not be much left to see. Egypt’s unique geography separates it from other lands.

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

The debt reached 100 million pounds and the Egyptians had completely lost control of their country. Britain decided to colonize Egypt and control them as a protectorate. The protectorate allowed the British government to control Egypt's economic and political decisions without intervention from the Egyptians. In other words, Egypt was such a weak country at that time. Later, Egypt's finances were taken over by the foreign countries which is Britain and France. Through the colonization of Egypt, Britain gained control of the Suez Canal, a major part of the world's trade routes. With this advantage, Britain decided to heavily tax the ships which passed through. Egyptians thought that the taxes would be put into improvements of their nation or the Suez Canal itself, but the money went straight to the British government as profit. Finally, the news reached to the public that Britain had colonized Egypt. Immediately, the Egyptians began to leave the country. British had to act quickly, for they knew that without the Egyptians to maintain the land and canal, the profit would be lost. The British government decided to impose heavy public taxes on the Egyptians, forcing many to work the lands and never leave the country in order to pay them

While Dubai and Cairo continue to differ greatly, the two countries are nevertheless decades apart from each other. Cairo has been carving its mark in the Middle East for as much as 200 years, leaving its trademarks of humorous and colorful cultural activities. Dubai on the other hand, keeps its cultural activism shared with its citizens; this is a result from its never-ending amount of diversity and cultural competence. The word that can best describe the relation between these two is cultural diffusion, which defines itself as the scattering of one’s cultural beliefs to the standing grounds of the country’s own set points. Dubai is filled with nationalities that continue to share Dubai’s culture and tradition together that shows how Dubai is dedicated to celebrate its traditions and spread these celebrations along with the citizens even the expats who live in Dubai. On the other hand, Cairo manages to rely on its own activism and historical virtues, revoking entanglements with
