Egypt

The Egyptian scales of justice are not reversible. There is no justice in Egypt. ~ Mohammed Abu Hurira
No reason. Logic committed suicide a while ago. Egypt went crazy. Egypt is ruled by a bunch of lunatics. ~ Mohammed Abu Hurira

Egypt (Arabic: مِصر‎), officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a country mainly in North Africa, with the Sinai Peninsula forming a land bridge in Southwest Asia. Egypt is one of the most populous countries in Africa and the Middle East. The great majority of its estimated 80 million people live near the banks of the Nile River, in an area of about 40,000 square kilometers (15,000 sq mi), where the only arable land is found.

We will not forget moments of silence and days of mourning in Australia and Africa...

Quotes reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 218.
  • Egypt! from whose all dateless tombs arose
    Forgotten Pharaohs from their long repose,
    And shook within their pyramids to hear
    A new Cambyses thundering in their ear;
    While the dark shades of forty ages stood
    Like startled giants by Nile's famous flood.
  • And they spoiled the Egyptians.
    • Exodus, XII. 36.
