I just can’t understand why the USA bothers with Egypt

THey produce nothing of value, are dirt poor, have little influence in the world, and their only export is jihadis and illiterate peasants.

Why give them $ billions in aid? Just ignore them - and keep their people out of the USA.

I suspect it has to do with history, both Judeo-Christian history and the antiquities and sites from the age of the Pharaohs. There seems to be a willingness to accept the burdens and risks of protecting these priceless things, even if it also means protecting the savage animals currently disgracing the land.
