Who made the Suez canal made?

The Suez Canal was first built over 2,000 years ago. In 1859, the Suez Canal was built again, by the Universal Suez Ship Canal Company, and took 10 years to build. The first ship to pass through the canal did so on 17 February 1867; Giuseppe Verdi wrote the famous opera Aida for this ceremony. The canal made is possible to easily transport goods across the world. The canal also allowed Europeans to travel to East Africa, and this area was soon controlled by European powers. The success of the canal encouraged the French to start building the Panama Canal. After the Six Day War in 1967, the canal remained closed until June 5, 1975. A UN peacekeeping force has been stationed in the Sinai Peninsula since 1974, to avoid more wars. About 15,000 ships pass through the canal each year, which is about 14% of world shipping. Each ship takes up to 16 hours to cross the canal. Retrieved from "http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suez_Canal"

While transferring through the Panama Canal, one rises in elevation somewhat higher before returning to sea level, than one does through the Suez Canal. Another significant difference is the length. The Suez Canal is around 190km in length, whilst the Panama Canal is about 80 km long.

Why was the Suez Canal built?

The Suez Canal was built to shorten the distance traveled by goods and people from Asia to Europe. Prior to the canal, there were three choices to transport goods:

  • Land transportation the entire way.
  • Ship through the Mediterranean and off load the ship, move the goods by land to the Red Sea or Arabian Gulf and reload on a ship.
  • Go around Cape Horn, a dangerous trip during most of the year.

The time savings, as well as the savings of wear and tear on the goods and the ships, was well worth the fee. The purpose of building the Suez Canal was to allow ships to travel between the Mediterranean and Red Seas, which would increase trade between the Middle East, Europe, and Asia.

What seas does the Suez Canal connect?

The Suez Canal (Arabic: قناة السويس, transliteration: Qanā al-Suways), is a large artificial canal in Egypt, west of the Sinai Peninsula. It is 163 km (101 miles) long and 300 m (984 ft) wide at its narrowest point, and runs between Port Said (Būr Sa'īd) on the Mediterranean Sea, and Suez (al-Suways) on the Red Sea. The canal allows two-way water transportation, most importantly between Europe and Asia without circumnavigation of Africa. Before its opening in 1869, goods were sometimes offloaded from ships and carried over land between the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. The canal comprises seven parts, north and south of the Great Bitter Lake, linking the Mediterranean Sea to the Gulf of Suez on the Red Sea.

Why is Suez Canal so famous?

TheSuez Canal also known by the nickname "The Highway to India" is an artificial sea-level waterway in Egypt, connecting the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. Opened in November 1869 after 10 years of construction work, it allows water transportation between Europe and Asia without navigation around Africa.

Although the Suez Canal wasn't officially completed until 1869, there is a long history of interest in connecting both the Nile River in Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea. It is believed that the first canal in the area was constructed between the Nile River delta and the Red Sea in the 13th Century B.C.E. During the 1,000 years following its construction, the original canal was neglected and its use finally stopped in the 8th Century.

What is the geopolitical importance of the Suez canal?

It was made to make it easier for ships to cross Africa when coming to and from red sea and med, England and Israel think they own it even though it is property of Egypt. They then started a war over it after Egypt stopped traffic on the canal in 1956 and the Jews again started a war over it in 1967 which lasted until 1973, all because they were barred from using Iranian waters up til 1975!

The Jews are currently doing this on the Gazans.
