The Middle East Friendship Chart
Obviously it's reductive and imperfect (where is Jordan? I didn't see Lebanon either), but this chart is an interesting attempt to begin to think about the complexity of relationships in the Middle East. I kind of want to add "Frenemies" as another relationship option and "Kurds/Kurdistan" as another player. Note, though, how ISIS is pretty much hated by everybody.
