Here is the simple answer...have the arabs make a claim to have the name changed....simple
Err- make a claim with Whom?

Which is the big "International office in charge of what things are called"?

It is simple, as long as westerns keep staying in the middle east the region has a chance. If the westerns decide to leave in mass, highly unlikely and leave the running of day to day operations to the locals they are screwed big time. There is no talent or know how for the locals to run and run efficiently the countries here.
The middle east as a whole is in a big perdictament. They are losing ground to the rest of the world. Not one country is a democaracy, well one is but they practice a different religion and that is for another tread. For the most part every country is a totaltarian swamp.
So what do the dicators do? If they educate their population the masses get wise and say enough with this totaltarian crap and overthrow the unelected dicators. If they are kept in the state they are in the countries contunie to slide further behind the rest of the world. What do they do? Stay tuned and find out.

Largely agree, Swan Man, with one proviso- Have a look at what is happening in countries in the region who HAVE overthrown their dictators and embraced their own version of "Democracy".

It's often better to have a benign dictatorship than an irrational electorate.

That'd be the International Hydrographic Organisation Welcome to IHO, and in particular Publication S-23 “Limits of Oceans and Seas” (which comes down on the side of The Persian Gulf in it's current edition - the 3rd)

Swan Man,

The issue of the type of government is fairly irrelevant as long as it maintains a high level of living for its citizens. As long as people have nice houses, good healthcare, clean cities ... they just not care how the rulers are defined. The poor Arabic nations end up with revolutions while for the rich ones it is business as usual.

As long as the income is there no reason to worry.

Wizofoz, I do agree with your statement.

Fish,

Thanks, I though there WAS probably some international body, but that doesn't make USE of a particular name universal or enforcable.

While we're at it, then, could we instead call the land mass south of the United Kingdom "South Britain"?! It would be the greatest move towards European integration for some time

Wiz I hear what you are saying but there is hardly ever a benign dictatorship. Absolute power corrupts absolutely and that has never been more so than in the middle east.
I wonder if the locals will ever get wise? Me doesn't think so.

Referring to your last sentence, I would have loved to stay tuned if I had had the guts to watch in silence, a decent language being raped.
