    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.

    For a better understanding, there must be knowledge of the past in the Middle East. That history shaped the world history, because many of those empires also crossed multiple boards throughout the world. There was even the biggest empire of the world involved in the Middle East and threatened even to overrun Europe. But what better to tell the history of the Middle East by pictures (of maps).

    Basically, the Mongols wiped out everyone from urban areas, unless they submitted to the Mongols. They had the choice between joining or dieing. In addition to these tactics, their speed of expansion was facilitated by military hardiness, military skill, meritocracy, and discipline. They managed to create the largest contiguous land empire in the known human history and to wipe out more then 50 million people!

    Some Palestinians are claiming that they have the historical right to live in the land of Israel. They were the first, so they have the right to be here. The Israeli (or the Jews) claim the same. So, let’s take wikipedia and put it in context.
