In September 29, 2013, New York Times remapped the Middle East, mostly dividing the countries by people’s ethnic origins, for example Kurdistan and Alawitestan, or their sects, such as Sunnistan.
In the map, Libya, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia are divided to 14 other countries. From this map we can see the minority nations declared their own independence and became smaller countries. Another interesting about this map is Alawitestan and Kurdistan was not able to spread to Turkey even though there are Alawites and Kurds living in southeast of Turkey.
The map is very important because it can actually happen in the future. Maybe it wont be exactly the same map but the truth is middle east will divide in a near future.
