Uniqueness: Turkey and Egypt
The common uniqueness of Turkey and Egypt is that they are countries that unite the continents. Turkey unites Asia and Europe, while Egypt unites Asia and Africa. Isn’t the Western-Islamist rift fault line of Egyptian origin? It seems that Circassians and Albanians produced important works during the Mamluk and Ottoman Empire periods in Egypt. Kavalalı intended to move the center of the Ottoman Empire to Cairo.
There is the Rifai Mosque in Cairo. Does Rifailik originate in Egypt? Rifai Mosque is magnificent in size. While the Westernism of the Turks started with Kavalalı from Egypt, Islamism continued with the Erbakan-Erdoğan line through Yavuz Sultan Selim.
Question: Why are we subject to the Egyptian model? Egyptian people are very similar to us. I don’t know if it’s thanks to Mehmet Ali Pasha, but it is perhaps the only Arab country where the Turk has signed the most prominently. Their social processes are also very similar. especially in the westernization process. Cracks between the layers of society.
The Arabesque style of music comes to us from Egypt. When Turkish music was banned on the radios in our country, Turkish people always listened to the Egyptian radio. There is a cafe called Fishawi, where Mehmet Akif always goes, in Han Halil, Cairo. Egypt is the first breaking point.
After India, I am also aware of our secrets in Egypt. Kavalali, Rifai, Mamluk Circassians, Albanians etc. Wonderful. I took 500 photos. In 1821, Kavalalı Mehmet Ali Pasha abolished the caliphate in Egypt. I don’t know, I just learned this. Those who wanted to appropriate the dynasty in the Ottoman Empire: 1 Kavalalı Mehmet Ali Pasha 2 Mithat Pasha.
