Now watch carefully as a real debater destroys your pitiful attempts at justification for blaming Europe for the inadequacy of the Middle East.
British Mandate of Palestine 1920–1948
French Mandate of Syria and Lebanon 1920–1946
British Mandate of Mesopotamia 1920–1932
"Golden Age" of Middle East:
Now I'll be real nice here and give you an extra 400 years even though its factually incorrect 750 to 1500 A.D
First "Mandate" you cited: 1920
Thats 420 YEARS of NOTHING. Where is the European onslaught that kept Islamic nations back in the Middle East all this time? Where are they Degreez?
Seeing as how in that time period Arabs were not ruling over themselves, so you absolutely have no point.
