http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-27905425 Questions

 

1. One of the readings talks about ?Chokepoints.? What does this term mean? Please delineate three such places located within the Middle East and

 

explain why these geographic locations are so very important, and why

 

you selected those three.

 

2. Read the Geography of Energy ? Middle Eastern Oil Pipelines pages 230-231. How has the threat of closure affected the routing of the oil pipelines? How did Saddam Hussein shift the Iraq pipeline network to respond to

 

various conditions? Are there any similarities between moving the pipelines in the Middle East

 

to those of the Caspian basin? If there are similar reasons for moving them what are they and why?

 

3. When we read about the Middle East we usually have a perspective that

 

involves two things ? Muslim extremists and oil. To those living in the Middle East

 

there is another resource that is more important to them than oil. What do you

 

think this resource is, and why is it so very important for the nations bordering or

 

containing this resource to control it?

 

4. Three of the world?s great religions have their spiritual soul located in

 

Jerusalem. To understand what currently is taking place in not only the Middle

 

East, but also Europe, the United States and even Asia requires understanding

 

what makes these religions different. Explain the differences in these religions. Pay attention to the differences

 

and distinctions which include such things as the holy books used by each

 

religion. Explain what makes them not only different, but also similar.

 

5. ISIS ultimate aim is to reestablish the caliphate ? the empire of Islam?s early

 

Golden Age ? and thereby empower a formidable array of Islamic states to wage war on any country standing in the way. With this concept in mind what can or

 

should the United States and other countries impacted by this extreme ideology

 

do?
