The area is, at the moment, one of the most dangerous places in the world and possibly one of the most volatile hotspots, politically, in the world.

I know it has always been unstable, having been fought over by Egyptian, Hittites, Hebrews, Greeks, Persians, Romans, Arabs, Byzantines, Crusaders, Turks, French, British and finally the Israelis, Lebanese and Syrians.
