Egypt and Sudan

Regarding the historical bond between Egypt and Sudan, I would just like to add the following:

Among the four presidents of the Republic, our first and third presidents were half-Sudanese. Both Mohammed Naguib and Anwar el-Sadat had Sudanese mothers. Naguib's mother was the descendent of an Egyptian family living in Sudan and Sadat's mother was a Sudanese living in Egypt. In the early 1950's, the Sudanese nationalist parties decided they would like to remain united with Egypt on the condition that we would be a parliamentary democracy and that the deposed Naguib would be restored once again as president of the republic. However, Nasser responded in character, choosing his personal dictatorship over the combined interests of two nations put together. Naguib and Sadat were the most popular with the Egyptian people among the four.

Anonymous,

I condemn strongly such horrible acts...but since it is Nasser that we are speaking about, it would have been something very nice of you to do, lol. After all, the same would have been done to Hitler, right?
