Like any other major history, the history of the Islamic States after the creation of Islam is rich. For a better understanding about Islam and the Middle East, I would advice to study those maps, because many peoples, Islamic religions and countries are created throughout this history of the Islamic States.

  1. […] Islam goes through the normal social and religious cycles to adulthood, resulting into changes. A religion like Christianity had also development cycles; for example the Christian church decided to interpret the bible literally (about 1,000 years ago) instead of using their own interpretation, which resulted in an almost immediate reduction of Christian religious violence. The same for Islam, but here we can distinguish four development cycles, which started in the 1960s and 1970s as part of a broader religious resurgence in the Muslim world surging from the margins towards the mainstream. The second cycle started in the 1990s with the renewed violent militancy, caused by repressed social growth from the first cycle. Phase three started end of the 1990s, which target of the Islamic Extremism was now global with the important role of Osama bin Laden’ al-Qaida, which peaked with the 9/11 attack on the US. Phase 4 started with the aftermath of the Arab spring, the hideous violence of Syria, the failure of Iraq (and of western policy making in the Middle East), regional squabbles, renewed Shia vs Sunni Islam competition and the rise of Islamic State. The current wave of terrorism is not coming out of nowhere, but it’s born 40 years back in history and it’s called Islamic Extremism. The triggers for the social changes goes back to 610, when Islam was created and the reaction against waves of western imperialism in the Islamic world, starting at 1798 (for more about this, look at the History of Islamic States).
