How did I miss this post?

i do not know much about eqyptian history,

How many times you have to be told that you do not study history in isolation and that history did not start in 1570CE as you seem to think and at least you should be aware of what is going on in your area of the world more so and in the case of Egypt the Turks occupied it for a long period of time

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

Why would I lie to you? Give me a good reason and better be good. You tell me. It is true Gamal Abd el-Nasser who by the way had no like for the Turks and helped Cyprus and Makarious in their struggle against the Turks he was the first real Egyptian leader in almost 2000 years amazing but true

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

You and you must pardon me ignorant again. Egyptians always had no like for their occupiers be it the Arabs or the Turks as for revolts as an example go and google "The Bashmour uprising" which is a revolt by the Coptic falaheen against your Arab masters in 730-740CE and the results were nothing short of a disaster for the people of Egypt and this is only one example but the civilized in this case the Egyptians suffer at the hands of the barbarian invaders and in the case of Bashmour the barbarians were the Arab invaders of Egypt and just watch and see what is going on in Iraq where is this case millions of civilized Iraqis are suffering at the hands of a few thousands members of the terrorist group Da'ish. Thsi is what the invading Arabs did some 1400 years ago and this is what the barbarian Turks did when they invaded the civilized Middle East now do you get it or is it beyond you?

So did you learn something new today?

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

Far from the truth this is why we call it in real history: Old civilizations are never conjured away and I suspect that the Greeks and the Armenians and the Syrians left a lot in the culture of Turkey be it the food or the language or even Turkish islam itself you see the barbarian Turks subjected them to genocides but these ethnic groups have left their legacy and it is there to stay

Again: Old civilizations are not conjured away not by invasions or even genocides

Do they really teach you real history I'm just wondering

if they rebelled but could not succeed for 2000 years

Again why do you want to be spoon fed? Go and read a book the history of Egypt in the past 2000 years for a change

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

Drivel

and this leaves me wondering who built the pyramids then?

What does this have to do with the fact that Egypt was run by non Egyptians for 2000 years and the pyramids were built 3500 years ago? surprise me with an answer that make sense
