How The Curse Of Sykes-Picot Still Haunts The Middle East

 In the Middle East, few men are pilloried these days as much as Sir Mark Sykes and François Georges-Picot. Sykes, a British diplomat, travelled the same turf as T. E. Lawrence (of Arabia), served in the Boer War, inherited a baronetcy, and won a Conservative seat in Parliament. He died young, at thirty-nine, during the 1919 flu epidemic. Picot was a French lawyer and diplomat who led a long but obscure life, mainly in backwater posts, until his death, in 1950. But the two men live on in the secret agreement they were assigned to draft, during the First World War, to divide the Ottoman Empire’s vast land mass into British and French spheres of influence. The Sykes-Picot Agreement launched a nine-year process—and other deals, declarations, and treaties—that created the modern Middle East states out of the Ottoman carcass. The new borders ultimately bore little resemblance to the original Sykes-Picot map, but their map is still viewed as the root cause of much that has happened ever since.

Don’t worry about concrete goals and timelines. Pakatan will get there, eventually. Somehow.

The Best Part About Batman V Superman, According To Anthony Mackie

 As Marvel and DC comics have been competitors for decades, there was no question that the same battle lines would be drawn at the movie theater. Still, while Marvel and DC’s movies will always be compared to each other going forward, it doesn’t mean that people can’t love both. Even the people who star in one of the franchises can still show appreciation for the other. Anthony Mackie has done exactly this, as has nothing but good things to say about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Zakir Naik: A Coalition Government Of UMNO And PAS Will Strengthen Islam

2016 opened up a new chapter in Malaysian politics when two main Islamic parties − UMNO and PAS, sat alongside each other to work together for the sake of Islam, and to unify communities. To see both parties joining hands like in the 1970s is a little far-fetched, however it is not impossible.
