January 3: World War I and the Middle East
World War I had an astounding impact on the Middle East. Britain and France knew that Arabs in the region wanted independence from the Turks, and the two European powers exploited the division in World War I. Britain promised the Arabs independent states in the region, that was to include Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, and Palestine. However, Britain also promised Palestine as a Jewish homeland. The interwar period was dominated by chaos, confusion, and insurrection as Britain and France tried to maintain their control over the region.
