The Ottoman empire broke up into nation-states to mirror the european states. Separation of religion and state, women's rights were some of the principles they adopted, plus a strong army, which was educated in order to better carry out its duties, and looking to the west for trade. Empires no longer exist, such as the Ottoman empire, which were self sufficient. The nations trade with each other. What the new modern states in the Middle East had to fight was this islamist movement who opposed these new modern nation-states and its principles So Egypt, the modern state, founded by Mehmet Ali, who was a military man, would probably follow these principles as it would improve its economy, which was one of the goals of the nation state. The growing population and fewer jobs and food must be addressed in every country to put down unrest. Anarchy did a lot of damage to Egypt and the economy as people fought with each other with no law and order. Govt. serves some functions towards peace and law and order. There is some discrimination against Christians in Egypt; however, we all agree, I think, that an islamist govt. would be worse and more intolerant to Christians and Jews.
