The source for much of this article`s content is the US State Department... it needs to be edited to comply with NPOV.

"Nasser's domestic policies were arbitrary and frequently oppressive, yet generally popular. All opposition was stamped out, and opponents of the regime frequently were imprisoned without trial. Nasser's foreign and military policies helped provoke the Israeli attack of June 1967 that virtually destroyed Egypt's armed forces along with those of Jordan and Syria. Israel also occupied the Sinai Peninsula and the Gaza Strip. Nasser, nonetheless, was revered by the masses in Egypt and elsewhere in the Arab world until his death in 1970."

This passage in particular must be revised. --Ce garcon 12:37, 11 Nov 2004 (UTC)

I agree


The edits made here are confirmed in Wikipedia's articles about Hosni Mubarak and his sons,Alaa Mubarakand Gamal Mubarak see mentioned articles for reference.


There is no mention of the 1919 revolution. --Schwael 17:34, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Needs Refocusing[edit]

Right now this reads like a History of the Politics of Modern Egypt. Much more could be added in terms of economic history, land reform, cultural change, etc. Let's get to work. --Carwil 20:21, 11 November 2005 (UTC)----

Carwil, sounds good! It would be helpful to me to have something to work towards... are there any country history articles that you think do a good job of being well-rounded? We might want to apply this also to the History of Egypt page (not just Modern Egypt). --Schwael 14:52, 13 November 2005 (UTC)
There is no mention of the attacks on the British Protectorate by the Senussi and Sudanese during the First World War. Is this the place for such information or should it go somewhere else?--RoslynSKP (talk) 06:27, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Secession of the City of the Dead[edit]

Does anyone know anything about the secession of the city of the dead from Modern Cairo? John D. Croft 07:12, 29 May 2007 (UTC)


This page should discuss about Egyptian history since 1956 when the British completely withdrew from Egypt until now. And the period 1882-1956 should be move to a new page History of Egypt under the British or History of British Egypt. (talk) 23:22, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree and will do it. --BoogaLouie (talk) 22:04, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
Now all I have to do is trim down the History of Modern Egypt article --BoogaLouie (talk) 22:15, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
A mean person rvted my changes to the template. If I have time I will fork off articles on Nasser era, Mubarak era and Sadat era and rvt the template back. --BoogaLouie (talk) 01:06, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned references in History of modern Egypt[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of History of modern Egypt's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "Fahmy":

  • From Muhammad Ali of Egypt: Khalid Fahmy (1998). All the Pasha's Men: Mehmed Ali, his Army and the Making of Modern Egypt. Cambridge University Press.
  • From Egypt: Fahmy, Mohamed. "Egypt's president calls back dissolved parliament". CNN. Retrieved 8 July 2012.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 11:59, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

WW2 history[edit]

'During World War II, British troops used Egypt as a base for Allied operations throughout the region.'

I would have expected the crucial desert campaign to warrant more than just one line. Valetude (talk) 12:57, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
