Bamarne Cave
Iraq

A cave in Bamarne, located approximately 15 miles from the Turkish border, once belonged to the Jews who lived there between 1940 and 1950, and served as a place for friends to gather at the end of every month for post-dinner discussions. The non-Jewish Kurdish people in Bamarne were curious about these meetings, but did not know the topics of discussions, just that discussions occured. When asked, by the Kurdish elders, the local Jews are said to have claimed that a regular topic was how they could secure their rights in Iraq.

More About Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
