Why was the Fertile Crescent considered the cross roads of the ancient world?

Crossroads is a fairly meaningless expression unless there is a lot of traffic crossing it and going/coming to/from somewhere significant. In fact there were two centres of civilisation - the Fertile Crescent and Egypt. It is more meaningful to talk in those terms rather than a glib phrase which has little meaning.
