A Helpful Guide to the Middle East

Beginning as early as the start of the 20th century, the Middle East (i.e. Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Libya, etc.) has faced turmoil regarding social conflict, topographical boundaries, and corrupt leadership.  For many citizens, these life-changing problems have caused endless personal and political issues throughout the region.  While all of the fighting, coups, destruction, deceit, and plotting happens to this very day, as seen on our T.V. screens, we as Americans fail to fully understand the true history behind the problems plaguing the Middle East.  To help our readers get a little more insight into this heavy, and oftentimes confusing, history, we’ve attached some links to clear up some things.
