middle east

Fast Company points to a site about who really controls the Middle East. Check out Boot it up, and mull the fate of the Mongols.
Answer to the question: Who has controlled the Middle East over the course of history?
Pretty much everyone. Egyptians, Turks, Jews, Romans, Arabs, Greeks, Persians, Europeans... the list goes on. Who will control the Middle East today? That is a much bigger question. [when you've watched this map - about 90seconds - there are some other interesting maps on the site (link above)]
