The Suez Canal
    #11209063 - 10/08/09 06:14 PM (8 years, 12 days ago)

Hi,  I'd like to discuss the canal and what impact it has had on middle east policy,  and the middle east today.  The Suez canal is a key trade rout that allows ships to take a major shortcut through Egypt instead of having to go around Africa.  Basically what i want to talk about is; how it affects world trade,  and the conflicts over it.

What's your opinion about the canal and disputes like the "Suez crisis"  and the "six days war?" basically, Egypt wanted to restrict trade from Israel and other western countries over it's influence and presence on sovereign Egyptian land, and in response,  Israel and the "west" invaded and took the Sinai peninsula up to the Suez canal.


I think this issue,  as well as the Balfour Declaration to create Israel,  are major sources of modern contention in the Arab world,  and that many "terrorists" see themselves as freedom fighters opposing the Israel/western "oppression."

what do you think? was it all justified? or was it a way to gain more control over global trade?
