Middle East Redrawn

This map, by Ralph Peters, shows some interesting features:

  • Baluchistan, which is at present divided between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
  • Iraq dived into a shia and a sunni nation.
  • A state inlcuding the holy cities of Mekka and Medina.
It forgets to add some area to Armenia. This is a bit strange since the Kurds assisted the Ottomans in their (how should we call it) 'final solution' of the Armenians.
