History of the Middle East

The Middle East is a complex region of the earth. At the crossroads of three continents, these lands have witnessed one of the first human civilizations, the many wars of great empires, and the incredible rise of Islam to prominence. From the astounding academic achievements of Middle Eastern scholars to the conflicts that created and destroyed the largest empires in the world, the Middle East has a colorful history that had its debut more than 5000 years ago.

But I can always answer your questions. :-)
