Middle East Factoid

I am going to try and give my readers a piece of fact about the region that is causing so much grief, the Middle East.

This will be my first---

The borders of modern day Iraq, were drawn up by a female, Gertrude Bell. She did this at the end of WWI. She and T.E. Lawrence alone set up the monarchy of King Faisal of Iraq, who was not an Iraqi, but a Saudi by birth.
