If you are flying Iberia and a flight attendant offers you a white packet labeled "milk" to go with your coffee, do not, under any circumstances, actually stir the white liquid contained therein into your coffee.
I am an Associate Professor in History at Shippensburg University, where I teach courses in Middle Eastern and world history. My two major research areas are the Middle East from the 7th through 10th centuries and the Persian Gulf from ancient times to the present. Nothing on this site represents an official position of Shippensburg University.
