5000 Years Of Turmoil, Conflict, And Change In 90 Seconds

Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives

If you've ever wondered who's controlled the Middle East over the course of history, you'll find that it's been just about everyone: Arabs, Egyptians, Europeans, Greeks, Jews, Persians, Romans, Turks, etc..., etc...., etc....

For a 90 second interactive lesson on the history of the Middle East, check out The Imperial History of the Middle East. What won't be immediately obvious to you from the flash presentation is that Israel is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, and speaks the same language, that it did 3,000 years ago.

For a sobering take on what history tells us about the chances for lasting peace in the ME, be sure to watch the summation at the end of the clip (hat tip - Egyptian Sandmonkey).
