No excuses, pre-meditated murder is just that.

I hope that better general education and female emancipation will help in all the countries there. However many generations it takes.
Imagine if that region were peaceful? Hard isn't it!

You mean, what if only geography geeks would know those countries existed? That would be weird, but beautiful...

More a fantasy if the region hadn't gone the way it has.

Who knows what art and science would have come out of it?

Maybe less than there already is. There is Orphaned Land, I just read about a Israeli-Iranian Folk Band headquartered in Berlin... conflicts also cause creativity. And there is a huge Israeli startup scene in Berlin, which also went there because its neutral ground..

I doubt there will be much coming out of Iraq or Syria for a while.
You need stability for research and the arts.

Moving to another country to get away from violence isn't going down well in neighbouring countries. I think Jordan has the largest UN camp, over a million last time it was on the news.
