Sykes & Picot, seasoned in colonial administration, represented the British and French aristocrats with a plan that helped create the modern-day Middle East, under the notion that the people of the region would be better of under European rule.
However, the impact of the one-sided “agreement” turned out to be quite different. The straight lines were drawn to establish uncomplicated borders, but in fact carved up the historical boundaries of the Kurdish people.
The Balkanization of the Middle East confirmed that the secret infamous Franco-British political pact, better known as the 1916 Sykes-Picot Agreement, became the blueprint of today’s map, with all the bloodshed as an evil masterminded consequence.
The destruction of the Middle Eastern identities was implemented to secure Western dominance, due to the fact that conflict was guaranteed this way, for the greedy entities to profit from. A large Kurdish population was hereby divided into four states, Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria.
Shi’ite Arabs were split between Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain and the eastern provinces of Saudi Arabia, while the Alawites, a heterodox Shi’ite Arab sect, reside today along the northern Lebanese, Syrian and southwestern Turkish coasts. The Druze were distributed between today’s Israel, Lebanon and Syria.
Lebanon, supposedly a Christian redoubt, now include large Sunni and Shi’ite populations, as well a Alawites and Druze.
Sunni Arabs, who formed the dominant population of the Middle East, were divided into numerous states, while pockets of Turkmen, Circassians, Assyrians, Yezidis and Chaldeans were isolate throughout!
At the dawn of the 21st Century, minority ethnic groups expressively ruled Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and Bahrain. However,the early post-WW I settlement proved to be extremely unstable. Coups were common and kingdoms were overthrown, while the British and French exercised a strong influence over local affairs.
By the early 1960’s, Arab republics outnumbered Arab monarchies, Arab attempts to undo the partition of the region culminated in the merger of several states, such as Syria with Egypt and Iraq with Jordan, which itself annexed those parts of mandatory Palestine, that were not ruled by Israel!
The effort proved to be short-lived. Repeated failures to exercise the Zionist state from the Middle East marked the end of the endeavor. Arab leaders ultimate proved more interested in maintaining the fiefdoms they inherited from the Europeans that abdicating their cathedra for the greater Arab cause.
Through it all the old order remained in place. Neither independence nor Israel eventually altered the Imperial map. However the West is still busy undermining the political balance, with a new strategy. Destroy and divide to concur. The Western supported terrorist group, ISIS was put in charge to destroy all that has been left behind. Not even cultural heritage sites escaped the censored fascist Zionist mission.
