Discrimination[edit]

From religion "The Coptic community, as well as several human rights activists and intellectuals, maintain that the number of Christians occupying government posts is not proportional to the number of Copts in Egypt. They are also the victims of discriminatory religious laws, anti-Christian judges, and anti-Christian state police. Anti-Christian laws include laws governing repairing old churches or constructing new ones, which are usually impossible tasks, requiring presidential permission to build a new church, and a governor’s permission to renovate even the bathroom in an already-built church" this is an emotional and not scientific writing either you SET A SOURCE or REMOVE IT till then>

I believe that having a Christian Minister of Finance, and a Christian Minister for Environmental Affairs, in addition to other positions and key roles in previous governments prove that no discrimination is present. As for the churches, it is clear that whoever wrote the article is either trying to ignite sectarian conflicts, or is writing out of ignorance. Please seek actual statistics to find out the actual number of churches currently in Egypt, and the number of churches under construction, then compare that number to the number of mosques and revisit the proportionality of the issue.

Please note that Muslims as well as Christians in Egypt respect Wikipedia, and therefore this comment is presented.

Some discussion on leadership and justice would remove some of the religious tensions. What were the leaders doing for Egypt? Were the policies fair? People recognize injustices and they are not related to the religion so I don't like seeing the Christian vs Muslim talk.

Whereabouts of the Prime Minister[edit]

Unfortunately, according to an article of the state-run al-Ahram Online, the Egyptian appeals court have dismissed Mr. Hisham Qandil as PM and sentenced him to one year in prison. I'm pretty sure the military may have arrested and detained Mr. Qandil already and the whole cabinet is basically de-facto dissolved. I'm pretty sure there will be a new Prime Minister and new cabinet starting tomorrow or soon. May need to update it as soon as possible. http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/1/64/75629/Egypt/Politics-/Court-upholds-verdict-sacking-Morsis-PM-Qandil,-se.aspx

REQ: IPA pronunciation for Arabic name[edit]

Could an established editor please add the IPA pronunciation for the Arabic name (both the short form and the long form)?

Vice-president and Prime Minister[edit]

Neither have Mohammed ElBaradei nor Ziad Bahaa El-Din been officially appointed for any positions. The positions of vice-president and prime minister are still vacant.

Smart Village?[edit]

What "Smart Village" ad is doing in the Telecommunications section? It looks like a blatant business advertisement randomly inserted in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.229.177.67 (talk) 12:09, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

in 2012 the population was just over 83 million. The longest river in the world is Nile and it runs though Egypt. Egypt is home to the great pyramid of Giza, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Cario is the capital and largest city in Egypt. Egypt is in Africa.

hope this information is useful for you — Preceding unsigned comment added by La1766 (talkcontribs) 06:07, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Copy-paste of large part of article removed

Semi-protected edit request on 9 May 2014[edit]

Please change the phrase "officially: the Heba's Arab Republic of Egypt" from the article's first sentence to "officially: the Arab Republic of Egypt" as the former is incorrect. The word "Heba" is a name in the Middle East given to women; the addition of it to the country's full name is factually incorrect and was probably added in as a prank or a means to impress someone with the same name.

Please remove the entire "Smart Village" subsection from "Telecommunications". It doesn't describe any separate kind of telecommunications (e.g., mobile, post, etc., like other subsections), doesn't explain what its significance is, and seems to be just an advertisement for "Smart Village" company. 178.216.76.99 (talk) 18:57, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, you were right about that. Fitzcarmalan (talk) 00:29, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
