I don't remember what source I came across the Copts are the largest minority in Egypt they number about 18 million.(she is of the darker Coptic shade for northern Egypt). There are lots of pictures of Copts online as well as DNA results although the commercial DNA companies don't have a Coptic reference population. There was a scientific article a few years ago that isolated a Coptic component and separated it from the Arabian component in Egyptians and it showed that component expanded past Egypts borders. The Copts claim genetic and cultural continuity with to Egypts pre-Islamic past to the era of the Pharaoh's.

I dont think that the Greeks care because they know that modern northern Europeans now look down at them even as they traipse over ruins giving credit to the ancient Greeks.
This is very true.....

No it isn't, lots of Europeans that carry small amounts of North African components are curious and so are North Africans and Egyptians to be specific. Most people that study the topic know there is a minor Nilotic component as well.

This post I don't get and seems a bit silly. Eygptians are African and play in the African tournaments especially when they have to qualify in the World Cup that is because they represent an African country. As far as I know you can't move a country out of the continent of Africa.

No African really views themselves as Africans rather they view themselves from a specific ethnic group they belong to. Not sure if anyone arguing these points of identity have been to any part of Africa let alone Egypt. Egyptians vary in complexion just as others do throughout Africa (but many look undeniably black to me).

No one from Britain would argue that Italians aren't European.

Recently I was searching something and came across an interesting piece of history that Ptolemy I Soter of Macedonian Greece ruled Egypt that lasted for nearly 3 centuries. I do not know many Egyptians well except for one who was in my French class then. She was fair and could easily be mistaken for a Portuguese. I wonder in Egypt today how many are the descendants of Ptolemy I Soter and the Romans?

Its the inter marriages of white people with the dark skin Africans, is why Egypt is so white now and the leaders of Israel are trying to get Egypt declared as southern Europe as well as Israel. That is why some of Egypts president and Kings were killed.

The European people are restoring original African artifacts to look white as possible, statues with European noses and faces. Noses were destroyed white people (its a fact), these leaders of Israel are involved. Why do white people steal other nations culture and then place themselves in those shoes as thought they are the original, it hurts to know that there people who steals another nation of people country as though its theirs. The reason that Europe is like that today, because of the invasion of white people from Europe, the leaders of Israel Judaism religion is doing this. Ass well as submitting clone white animals , which they have been doing for years, its to turn everything white, as to destroy all Africans. Egypt is not its real name, cush, kemet, land of dark skin Hebrews, which left Egypt black and now they say they are white, yet they are dutch, Germans, Russians, polish, Switzerland, danish and others of European countries.

SO WHOSE IS LYING ABOUT THE HISTORY OF AFRICA, BECAUSE EGYPT IS AFRICA ON THE CONTINENT PLATE OF AFRICA, JUST LIKE THE MIDDLE IS EAST AFRICA. WHY THE LIES, WHY THE LIES. EGYPT IS BEING DESTROYED BY WHITE PEOPLE, IS THERE NOTHING THAT BELONG TO COLORED PEOPLE THAT THEY HAVE NOT INVADED AND DESTROY. I COULD NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY SOME PEOPLE CALL WHITE PEOPLE THE DEVIL AND YET JESUS HIMSELF SAID THAT THEY WERE LIKE THEIR FATHER THE DEVIL. which was during the time of European rule over Israel

When will it stop, when will it stop all the lies and deceit from white people, its not enough then what, then what.
