Strife and Power in the New Middle East

Strife, conflict, religious extremism, and political maneuvering has plagued the middle east for millennia. These oil-rich nations; Turkey, Syria, Jordon, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Bahrain, and Qatar have struggled under dictators, powerful religious leaders, and, in some cases, periods of secular nationalism.

This infographic from the New York Times maps the relationships, including the influence of the United States.
