Egypt: the land of Mizraim
Egypt, also known by the names Musuru, Musru, Misir or Masri in other languages is where the story of the Israelite nations started. It is a transcontinental country found in North Africa. With the land bridge, Sinai Peninsula connecting to the Southwest Asia, it had great influence in Africa, the Mediterranean Basin, the Middle East, and other Muslim countries. Its boundary is defined by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Sudan to the south, Libya on the west, and the Red Sea on the east. The Gaza Strip and Israel can also be found bordering on the northeast.
It was declared a Republic country since 1953 but is under Emergency Law starting in 1967, so it has been governed autocratically by Mohamed Hosni Mubarak from 1981 to 2011. On February 2011, the country’s revolution ended the almost 30 years of Mubarak’s authority giving way to the ruling of a military council.
