Egypt is a Middle Eastern country and has solid Middle Eastern customs. Whether Muslim or Coptic, the Egyptian persons are deeply religious and religious principles control their daily lives. Each family member is accountable for the integrity of the family and for the behavior of the other members, creating a culture that many persons in the West would covet. The result is that Cairo is safer than any Western city of equal size and inhabitants.
