There are hundreds of threads here about the Middle East and what is going on in various countries there.
There is even a forum for "Middle East Issues":

In a nutshell the problems in the Middle East stem from one thing, religion, not just any religion but a religion that states death to non-believers and a trip to heaven for killing those who do not believe. If every single person on earth were Muslim there would still be no peace because the different factions of the religion would be fighting until there was nobody left. So keeping tabs on what is going on in the Middle East is an exercise in futility because the conflict will never ever cease. Ignorance is bliss in this case.

I'm usually on the science forum when on I'm on ATS. I usually just ignore anything not related to physics or astronomy. I know I shouldn't, but can someone explain to me what's going on?
Who's fighting who?
Who are the good guys?
Who are the bad guys?
What are we doing over there?
Who are our allies?
Who's telling the truth?
Who's bombing who?
Why are they bombing?
What are the false flags?
What's the conspiracy?
Remember, you're talking to a person who knows absolutely nothing about this kind of stuff.
I stopped studying overseas when I decided all of it was just too much to keep up with.
I'm trying to get a good understanding of these things again...

Well, too cut a long story short, Even though the USA didn't know where Osama Bin Laden was, they took a stab in the dark and invaded Afghanistan..
The USA invaded Iraq with a false claim that Saddam was building weapons of mass destruction. Too this day, those imaginery weapons still haven't been found.
Libya was a western backed uprising, Syria is a western backed uprising. But people still think its all about the Syrian people yet the Syrian people do not get the choice when it comes to electing a new government. Maybe its because over half of Syria actually back Assad, who knows.
As for Israel, they are just doing what they do best.. Not playing ball with the international community and blaming others for the very same reasons. Anyone with half a brain could see why Muslims are pissed. Others just assume that everything they see on the news is 100% fact. Its all about the Jews and the Muslims can pretty much go F**k themselves..

What invasion, they told us we were liberating them all! Now if only we could liberate ourselves from the plutocracy we live under!
Actually I doubt this has anything to do with religion and just like most of the wars of today it's all about wealth and resources! I feel TPTB are using religious overtones for a future event called the New Age Movement which will claim religions are the reasons for all war and we need to rid ourselves of them!
