Where are you from
cradle of civilization is Iraq and Syria not Israel.
@Tea-Spaghetti as for now, yarusalem is in israel, i said craddle of civilisation because its the very thin belt from where early humans crossed africa and reached asia
That doesn't make it a civilization. civilization is Mesopotamia or Egypt or Elamites.
@Tea-Spaghetti i am particularly talking about yarusalem where it all started, and now its in israel, obviously the same people who lived there for 2000 years still lives there, and is holy site for jews, christians and moslems, a nation is not a piece of land or name of countey, its the people who makes civilisation
But other cities has long history as well like Petra, Damascus, Mosul not just Jerusalem.
@Tea-Spaghetti i dont know why you feel so offended about israel, the asker just asked what is my favourite country in eastern middle east, i simply said israel, To be honest mosul and damascus are old too, but i dont think i can like that place after what isis did there, infact in amidst of all chaos in middle east, isreal appears like an oasis where liberal value still hold place and women has more freedom unlike any other middle east nation, also israel far exceed all mentioned nation in terms of technology, education, research and knowledge as welltheir agriculture technlogies way better , only other country i like after israel is UAE, their crown prince is really open minded and farsighted and he is bringing modern liberal values slowly in UAE, already started woeking to shift economy from oil based into tourism and bussiness hub , and UAE is also focusing heavy on education and science, they even developing their own space agency just like israel, which i think is nice attempt among all middle east countries.
Israel is not liberal they are very brutal to other countries and also in pictures israel does not look pretty to me. UAE and Qatar are more pretty. Israel is the same close-minded as other Middle Eastern countries but it has the military backing of US. Of course I do think Israel is interesting country but I don’t think it is best country in Middle East no.
@Tea-Spaghetti its your personal opinion of israel and its okay, however my personal opinion of israel is different which is ohk for me, I don't know why we have to debate about personal choices of likes and dislikea , i like israel, its a fact for me , its that simple,
Ok I apologize for arguing. I think Israel science is impressive and the people are smart it is more political issues that bother me that is all
Why did no one choose Turkey? Obviously I guessed it would be the second after Turkey's Israel. I think Qatar and the uae are artificial cities, I should have put Iran into options, but there was a choice restriction. Iran has a rich culture but I did think it would get few votes and I didn't choose it.
I know it’s not a common choice I am different
Cool, I guess there are many Indian people on this site
Yeah, maybe. I don't know
They are a very advanced and accomplished people and an outpost of Western Civilization in the Middle East.
That means it's not really middle eastern but just a terrorist state from westerners. If you are looking at middle eastern countries you should look for ones that are actually from the area. Also I look at photos of Israel and the country does not seem pretty to me.
I just like it.
It's not bad.
