There is a plenty of historical material and true stories from Egypt, ancient and modern. Egyptian history is so full of drama, action and adventure more than what screenwriters can imagine. Take for example the true story of the Last Pharaoh of Egypt, Hosny Mubarak. If you want to know the true story of the Last Pharaoh of Egypt, you'd better pay attention to what's going on in Egypt these days and in the near future. That will make a lot of headlines.

Many people consider that the Pharaonic era in Egyptian history had ended thousands of years ago. But to the Egyptians, the memories of their pharaohs are still fresh. The word pharaoh is still used in Egyptian daily language, Arabic, as a detonation of tyranny, arrogance, haughtiness and unjust power.

 

The 83 years old Mubarak of Egypt has been in power since 1981 with no vice-president. Concerns about Mubarak's health draws much greater attention to the question of who will next rule the nation of Egypt?

 

Will Africa be the last great stand in this Long War against al-Qaida? Now this fight heads south... and yes, the Long War will be even uglier there.

 

If that scenario was not frightening enough, there are few others that are even scarier. A scenario where an ambitious general would stage another coup, turning Egypt into a God -- knows-what regime and allying himself with Muslim radical groups? Would Egypt witness another Khomeini-style revolution with the usual anti- American? Taking into consideration the recent rise of Hamas and Ikhwan, this is not a farfetched scenario.

Considering the alarming rising poverty figures in Egypt, could Egypt be overrun by an angry and hungry mob, French-style revolution?

 

Whatever the scenario, spillover from what could occur in Egypt in the near future would impact the sum of Arab, Muslim and Mid Eastern nations. Western capitals are keeping tabs on the situation fearing a domino effect in Egypt.

 

This is why whatever unfolds on the Egyptian landscape; will be a story of monumental proportions. Will Smith: Watch out for the Last Pharaoh of Egypt.

First of all, Taharqa wasn't

First of all, Taharqa wasn't Ethiopian but an Nubian Emperor who conquerred ancient Egypt at the age of 19. Greeks confused history by calling ancient Nubia (currently Sudan) Ethiopia. Secondly and most importantly, Taharqa's history isn't Egyptian but Nubian.

Would Egypt witness another

Would Egypt witness another Khomeini-style revolution with the usual anti- American? Taking into last minute consideration the recent rise of Hamas and Ikhwan, this is not a farfetched scenario.

Nubia included modern day

Nubia included modern day Ethiopia. The 25th dynasty is known as the cushitie dynasty, cushities are Ethiopians.

Taharqa's history is

Taharqa's history is Sudanese/Nubian!!

Look Out for Deceptions with Last Pharaoh (Suten)

The history of a 25th Dynasty military expedition, led by a Kushite Suten (Pharaoh), dispatched to the Near East in 701 B.C.E, its destination corresponds to today Palestine/Israel. Its aim was to prevent the Assyrian King, Sennacherib, who god was Ashur, from carrying out a conquest of the last Canaanite strong hold, Jerusalem. This black-African mighty force intervention, led by the young military chief and nephew of Shabaka name was Nefertem Khu Re Taharka. This mission enabled the fragile, war-torn Hebrew kingdom to survive and nurse its self back to economic and demographic health. Thereby allowing the Hebrew religion, Yahwism (and their god YHWH), to evolve within the next several centuries into Iudaism (Judaism). From Judaism would off shoot Christianity and then later Islam. The story of this Kushite Army, following their god Amon, was widely known in the west until a century ago. One source, the bible 2Kings 19:35, Isa 37:36, now gives the credit to “the angel of the lord” rather than Taharka. Was this the same group of Hebrews that came into Kemet (Egypt) and resided on Elephantine (Beggar) Island in Aswan to later go on into Gondar Ethiopia? Taharka wpuld again win in battle against the Assyrian King Esarhaddon in 674 B.C.E.
Will Smith playing Taharka could be misleading. Taharka coming from now Nubia Sudan area would have been a Jet Black complexion who wives and off springs would have been too. Mixing was not popular with this group during that period.
