The Middle East has always been a fascinating place, full of stories, anecdotes and extremes. Because of its geographical location at the apex between Africa, Asia and Europe, it has seen the birth of the first civilizations and their struggles for supremacy, but also the cultural , artistic and religious exchange which have nurtured us all . The Western world owes to the Middle East what it is and what will remain, despite their radicalist ideals.
