According to an article in Foreign Affairs ( Davison, 1960) the term Middle East was popularized by an American naval officer named Alfred Thayer Mahan in 1902, but it might have been used by the British during their years of colonialism in the region. China and Japan for example were considered t…o be the Far East so the region between the Far East and The West then became the Near East or the Middle East. Although at times in history the Near East denoted the Balkans, it now generally means the Middle East plus Turkey and Iran. The terms Middle East and Near East are eurocentric because they describe a region in relation to Europe or The West. Despite this, the term is now accepted and even people in the Middle East call it that ( Al-Sharq Al-Awasat means Middle East in Arabic). The issue of why the Middle East is called the Middle East is an interesting example of how simple geographic names are emeshed in geopolitics and can shift in meaning over time.

Why was the Middle East so attractive to outside travelers invaders and settlers from the time of the earliest civilization there?
Middle East has always been attractive to travelers, invaders and settlers because of the climate, the abundance of water [Tigris and Euphrates rivers] and its fertile land
the Sumerian civilization is the earliest known civilization in the middle east and in the world,it's located in the southern part of Mesopotamia between the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers, (southern Iraq)

The development of civilization was a result of a change in the collective psyche of a group of people. The people of our civilization see the world as something that belongs to humans. Our civilization is a way of living that functions hierarchically instead of tribally. It is a way of life that …turns natural resources such as land, water and food into tradeable commodities. The first civilizations formed independently from each other and on different continents. All of them have since been abandoned, except ours. The development of civilization that began for us in the Fertile Crescent still continues today. Our population is still growing, we are producing more food and we are expanding into areas of the planet where our culture has not gone before. ( Full Answer )

If you sit there and think about it, we have freedom of speech, democracy, our amendments and the integration of blacks and whites, why shouldn't the middle east have the all or most of the same privileges as us? Did you know that women aren't even allowed to look at their own husbands and they have… to do EVERYTHING that the husbands says or the fact that children cant speak for themselves in the factious arranged marriages! Let me ask you this, do you think that all middle easterners are like the ones that attacked us? No, they're not all like that, they're millions of people, mothers, fathers, and people just trying to live their lives just like people all over the world. So, why not help them get their voices heard and help to overcome their fear; let freedom bring them to the light of the good and democracy from the unforgivable dictators! ( Full Answer )

No, the Middle East covers Egypt, the Arab Peninsula, Turkey,Cyprus and Iran, and is often considered a synonym of Western Asia(although that'd be without Egypt).
It is considered the 'Middle' East relative to Europe; Turkey wasthe 'Near East,' and India, Pakistan, south Asia, and SoutheastAsia were the 'Far East.' However, only the term 'Middle East' iscommonly used in modern language, though 'Far East' is still usedin some obscure cases.
Some of the most famous are: Nile Valley (Egypt), Tigris and Euphrates (Mesopotamia), Ganges River, China, Myans and Aztecs in southern Mexico, Incas in Peru.
The middle east is where people grow up and make friends where theylive, like any other part of the world besides Antarctica. Ifsomeone asked how do you live in the United States or where youlive what would you say just ask yourself that and you will getyour answer to this silly question.
Because of the Government and Political Issues surrounding those countries It is a disagreement between the Jews and the Arabs over Palestine as they both think that the land is rightfully theirs. Multifaceted Answer The above answer reflects the general attitude that the Israeli-Palestinian …Conflict is the only conflict in the Middle East. The truth of the matter is that while the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is among the conflicts present in the Middle East (as are the American Invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan), it is not the sum total of conflicts in the Middle East. The majority of Middles East conflicts derive from the tribal mentality that is present in Arab States along with repression-based politics. The system as set up in numerous Arab countries, such as Libya and Iraq is that each person has sole loyalty to his tribal leader and not to a national government. As a result, these tribal leaders become their own de facto city states that go to war against each other. Sadr City in Baghdad was the most famous such micro-country. Each tribe promises its members better conditions at the expense of the conditions of a different tribe. As a result, the tribes come into direct conflict. What has typically happened in Arab National Governments is that one tribe has ascended to power and forcibly represses the other tribes to make good on its promise. This particular case is most visible in Syria where the Alawite Muslims (who make up less than 20% of the country) have ruled with an iron fist since the 1960s and made life terrible for the majority Sunni Muslims (completely without Israeli or Palestinian intervention). If more Arab countries become like Tunisia, federated states based on the sentiment of national unity, pride, and self-defense, where there is true freedom of religion and freedom of speech there may a great lessening of Middle East Conflicts. It is the deprivation of these identities and rights that results in much of the Middle East conflicts. ( Full Answer )
If you wish to define religion as: a belief in, and worship of, supernatural entities, then almost every culture in the world has religious beliefs of some description. Here are some examples sourced from Wikipedia: Celtic polytheism , commonly known as Celtic paganism ,    refers to …the religious beliefs and practices adhered to by the Iron Age peoples of Western Europe now known as the Celts, Hinduism is the predominant and indigenous religious tradition  of South Asia. Hinduism is often referred to as SanÄtana Dharma (a Sanskrit phrase meaning "the eternal law") by its adherents East Asian religions (also known as Far Eastern religions , Chinese religions , or Taoic religions ) form a subset of the Eastern religions. This group includes Caodaism, Chen Tao, Chondogyo, Confucianism, Jeungism, Shinto, Taoism, I-Kuan Tao and elements of Mahayana Buddhism. There are many many more, the Incas, Aztecs, Native Americans, Mayans, Polynesians, Africans all held there own religious beliefs. Of course most religions denounce other people's beliefs as mumbo jumbo even though worshipping the 'Crocodile God of the Limpopo' is no more ridiculous (or his existence less probable) than the Christian or Muslim ideas of God.

Petroleum accrued in the Middle East in the same way it accrued in the Caspian Basin and North Venezuela. Adjacent seas were covered by shallow oceans. Over a period of millions of years the remains of marine animals and plants fell to the sea floor, they accumulated into thick layers and eventually… were covered by layers of sand and silt. Over time, the immense weight of all of these layers compressed the lower layers into sedimentary rock. Bacterial actions, heat, and pressure converted the remains of the animals and plants into petroleum. The Arab States conveniently sit atop it. ( Full Answer )

The answer to that used to be easy: The Garden of Eden, which we assume to be in the area of Iraq between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Then we thought from Richard Leakey's archeology in Africa that we all came from a black women who Leakey called 'Lucy" because she had DNA in common with eve…ryone today. Then some archeologists found some errors, or at least questionable conclusions on Leakey's part, and thought that we all came from somewhere in Europe or nearby Asia. Now they think that our common ancestor was African, again, and that these people walked to the other places where we find remains of their civilizations. Some argue that this isn't likely what happened. We may someday know the true answers to questions like yours. ( Full Answer )
The way I understand it, according to the chapters 8 & 9 of B. Fagan's book on World Prehistory, the motivation for the creation of the early "states" was not long-term political stability. It's more on survival, given the harsh environment where these early civilizations flourished (especially Meso…potamia). The goal for forming political units and ties was to "adapt". Plains in Mesopotamia are fertile, giving them the advantage in growing cereals/grains; the Mediterranean lands were rich in metal/ores and other semi-precious stones. Thus, these regions forged trading ties. Still, threats from the environment (like the 300-year catastrophic drought in Northern Mesopotamia), and other 'political' forces (like the nomads from the North, pirates called Sea Peoples) continually challenged the seeming social structure. There is also the fact that the early states continuously wage wars and conquests to expand their domain. And the prevailing hierarchical structure of their times also didn't come unscathed. Given this background, the early civilizations/states in Mesopotamia and the eastern Mediterranean eventually broke down- reverting to the earlier structure of smaller cities. This fluidity in the political integration is seen not as a total loss/disadvantage, but an inevitable way to survive in their social, political and environmental setting. ( Full Answer )
Civilization arose in these areas, as their were rich land resources; that could be used for farming and agriculture. Due to this, permanent settlements were established and civilization spread outward from there. Note: Greek, Egyptian, and Middle Eastern civilization began in 5000 BC. Chinese civi…lization began in 4000 BC and Roman civilization did not begin until about 1000 BC. So the world's oldest civilizations are Greek, Egyptian and Sumer (which was in the Middle East).

How has Malaysia helped in the Advancement of Women and Indigenous People in countries suffering or that have suffered as a result of civil war in Africa and Middle East?
It has not, at least as far as the Middle East is concerned. It may be doing good in Africa, but it is rather unlikely. Malaysia's relationship with the Middle East is only strong because of both regions' strong embrace of Islam. Since that is the uniting aspect of their relationship, most of the… haggling and reforming that both of them do relates to economic and political changes so as to not move that religious bedrock. Therefore Malaysia would not advocate for an increase in women's rights in Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, Malaysian women's rights lags behind those of several major Arab countries such as Iraq and Jordan, so it would be difficult for them to promote such advancement abroad when they cannot do it at home. Finally, more money net flows from the Middle East to Malaysia, which means that the Middle Eastern countries have more of a say in Malaysian politics than the other way around. As to Africa being unlikely, Malaysia is not strongly invested abroad period. There is the off chance that they are contributing to help a situation like Somalia's because they are a Moslem nation, but there is little reason to hope that Malaysia would be invested in clearly non-Moslem nations such as Angola, Uganda, or Rwanda.
