I did eventually get it right, when I noticed the peninsula of Qatar, but before that it looked very unrecognizable, since Persia and Arabia are cropped out. I tried some lakes first, such as Bajkal (even though it would have to be rotated to look even close to that).

All very easy except for Venice but that becomes easy, too, if you look closely enough at the picture.

Also, though personally I find this idiotic, over here in Saudi Arabia and in most Gulf states and Arab countries the Persian Gulf is called the Arabian Gulf. Sometimes to try and avoid controversy some will refer to it simply as "the Gulf," though this has not been good enough for Iran in the past. This is a recent change. On older Arabic-language maps the body of water is also referred to (in Arabic) as the Persian Gulf.
and I agree with those who are incredulous that so many missed it. It looks nothing at all like the Red Sea.

Huh, that's interesting about the Persian/Arabian name argument. I try to pay attention to the Middle East but I guess not enough. (I manage to pay attention to the Far East, at least, so not all's for naught.) As for myself, I missed the Gulf simply because I drew a blank. I knew what part of the world to think for but all the names I could think of were "Red Sea" and "Caspian Sea" and I know full well that neither look anything like that.

I would vote no. This is a very recent trend started amongst Sunni Arab states in the region who hate Iran. It's purely political. Historically, even in these same states, the body of water has been known as the Persian Gulf for many centuries.

It clearly is, but I really don't care either way, as long as the geography quizzes keep coming...
