The name Egypt appears hundreds of times in the Old Testament and, with one exception, is always a translation of the word Mizraim — e.g. Genesis 50:11 says at the burial of Jacob the Canaanites observed the mourning of the Egyptians and so called the place Abel Mizraim. —Harold Hunt and Russell Grigg
2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom. —Isaiah 19
10 Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia. —Ezekiel 29

The Moslem Brotherhood means Egypt is a fanatic Sunni country. Anwar Sadat was a Nazi who legalised the Moslem Brotherhood in Egypt. After Sadat’s assassination, Mubarak banned the Muslim Brotherhood for 30 years. The US-allied Egyptian army clashed with Mubarak but more recently with, and overthrew, Morsi (of the Moslem Brotherhood). Flashback to the Dallas Council on World Affairs (1991) and the role of the petrodollar. Tomorrow, the 5-10% Christian Egyptians (Copts) will be forced to convert to Islam, flee, or be killed.
Global Firepower has Egypt with the 18th strongest military in the world, just below Pakistan (if Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal is not counted).
See “Egypt is the largest non-OPEC oil producer in Africa and the second-largest dry natural gas producer on the continent. The country also serves as a major transit route for oil shipped from the Persian Gulf to Europe and to the United States.”
