History of the Middle East in 90 seconds

The link below (apparently WordPress doesn’t let me embed Flash?) goes to a really neat cartoon that shows the various empires that have controlled the Middle East from 3000 B.C.E. until today. I’m not a history buff, but I found this really entertaining and perhaps it will be of interest and use to some of you.
Imperial History of the Middle East
One piece of this project that’s pretty interesting is the author’s “Revisions” page, which describes changes made to the map over time due to user comments. It seems there was originally a predicted Iranian empire on the timeline. Joy. Anyway, now that we Jews can go get a look at the thing, perhaps we can offer our own predictions of a Messianic time. (w00t! In our days!)
