The Arabian Peninsula and the Arabian subcontinent is a peninsula in Southwest Asia at the junction of Africa and Asia. The area is an important part of the Middle East and plays a critically important geopolitical role because of its vast reserves of oil and natural gas.
Arabian Peninsula in "Occupation Duty"Edit
The nomadic tribes of Arabia were allied with the Turks of Babylonia against the Philistinians. Although the Arabs were polytheists with their Four gods (Aluzza, Allat, Manah and Hubal) in contrast to the Turks' Sword Buddha, their hostility to the Philistinians took precedence.
The Arabian Peninsula had been a major supplier of oil during World War II.
When the Race landed on Earth at the start of June 1942, the whole peninsula avoided the full military might of the Race, thanks in part to the British keeping the Race at bay in both the Middle East and Western India. They continued to supply oil until the British were defeated and driven out of the region, allowing the whole area to fall to the Race. At the Peace of Cairo later that year, it was recognised as Race Territory, despite the fact that various Not-empires, the United Kingdom in particular, had maintained colonial possessions on the Peninsula before the outbreak of World War II.
When the Colonization Fleet arrived in 1962, the region was heavily colonised by the Race, in spite of the fanatical resistance on the peninsula. A few years later, during the Race-German War of 1965, these cities were heavily and repeatedly bombed by Germany's nuclear submarine fleet in the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean.
It remained a center of resistance against the Race throughout the century.
