A region diverse in culture and history, yet the source of many of today’s most violent conflicts. Episode 3 of A World On The Brink teases out threads from the tapestry of history to explain crucial yet less known factors—often missing from the popular narrative—which continue to drive conflict and change in the Middle East. These include the post WW1 redrawing of borders, the rise of Saudi oil wealth, the influence of Wahhabism, the formation of Al Qaeda, the resource curse and the rise of ISIS. https://www.realvision.com/world-brink-disclaimer/
