A Middle Eastern Primer

Roger Cohen wrote in the NY TImes A Middle Eastern Primer. "Events in the new Middle East, which is located in western Asia like the old Middle East, can seem confusing. In the belief that clarity leads to understanding, which in turn leads to good policy, here is a primer for the region."

It seems a good summary, though I had to look up "lèse-majesté" and "dyspeptic" and am pretty convinced he used "trafficked" incorrectly.
