Free patriotism courses for Egyptian expats intended to counter “false ideas abroad among Egyptians”

Patriotism courses for Egyptian expats: The Immigration Ministry is offering patriotism courses and special camps without charge to young Egyptians and academics studying abroad to ensure they are not “intellectually influenced” by “a war of rumors” or “turned against their homeland,” Al Monitor reports. An unnamed government source said that the course content focuses on highlighting state achievements and national projects. The courses — comprising eight two-hour sessions — are optional for most, but reportedly compulsory for some Egyptian embassy employees, so that they can “communicate efficiently with Egyptian expats.”
