eqyptians and masochism

Reader comment on item: Forty Years after the Invasion of Cyprus

Submitted by servet cevik (Turkey), Oct 13, 2014 at 02:33

i do not know much about eqyptian history,

but if it is true that they were ruled by non eqyptians for more than 2000 years,

and if they did not rebel against the invaders all through this period,

this probably shows them having some masochistic side of their nature/culture

if they rebelled but could not succeed for 2000 years

this shows stunted childhood development due to chronic malnourishment is not only a current issue but has always been their problem in history

and this leaves me wondering who built the pyramids then?
