Egypt, the mother of the world, the home of the Pharaohs and the pyramids, was colonized by Britain. Britain had the largest empire during the 1800’s and the 1900’s, controlling land in Southeast Asia and in the Americas. After WWI the Ottomans were forced to leave all of its land in Africa. The new countries in Africa, especially northern countries were an easy target for imperialism.
Throughout history, Egypt was one of the greatest societies for many reasons. The Egyptian society lasted from 3100 BCE to 30 BCE. It was ruled by multiple pharaohs, one of the most important being Queen Hatshepsut as she was the first female pharaoh in Ancient Egypt. In addition, the geography of the region helped the Egyptian people immensely as the Nile River provided a way of transportation improved soil conditions. Lastly, their architectural advancements made their society great as it created a way of spiritual life for all people.

Mesopotamia was a successful civilization because of it 's farming. I know this beause If they weren 't successful in farming, they couldn 't build up theire civilization. The text stated that the two rivers would bring in silt, which made rich farming land. This in turn, made them need less farmers, so people got other jobs.

Egypt is surrounded by barren desert, providing something Mesopotamia didn 't have a protective barrier from invaders.
I write this not as an Egyptian citizen, but rather as an individual that is worried about his homeland country’s future. Egypt is a nation that has many communities and therefore different cultures, beliefs and opinions. These different cultures form the final Egyptian culture with its traditions and customs. The citizens of Egypt are very proud of their culture and are trying to protect it from external modifications. Nevertheless, Egypt needs to integrate itself with diverse cultures as it is in the process of developing and needs to reshape and gain specific habits in order to advance. Immigrants shouldn’t fully assimilate themselves into the Egyptian culture. Instead they should consider themselves as multicultural. This in turn should
