#1 anthem of egypt in english

My homeland, my homeland, my homeland,

My love and my heart are for thee.

Egypt! O mother of all lands,

My hope and my ambition,

How can one count

The blessings of the Nile for mankind?

Egypt! Most precious jewel,

Shining on the brow of eternity!

O my homeland, be forever free,

Safe from every foe!

Egypt! Noble are thy children,

Loyal, and guardians of thy soil.

In war and peace

We give our lives for thy sake.

(I think the Salafist object to many of these verses but most particularly to the last since it is only to Allah that one is to give one's life)

#2 Not sure it has a beat, nor can I dance to it.
Thumbs down, big time.
