Het Arabisch-IsraŽlische conflict is ontstaan als onbedoeld gevolg van Brits koloniaal beleid. Externe partijen van uiteenlopende pluimage hebben zich ingespannen in dit conflict te bemiddelen, dikwijls echter met vrede als nevendoel, niet als hoofddoel.

At Farnborough in Hampshire on 17th April 1860, Tom Sayers of England and John Heenan of the United States met in boxing's first world championship bout -- it truly was the Lion and the Eagle.

Western civilization began in the Middle East: Judaism and Christianity, as well as Islam, were born there. For over a millennium, the Islamic empires were ahead of the West in learning, technology and medicine, and were militarily far more powerful. It took another three hundred centuries for the West to catch up, and overtake, the Middle East. ... more...
