This article is written for a younger audience, so it explains a very complicated idea in a way that is easy to understand. The article lists a few famous wars from different parts of history and explains why they happened. The writer suggests only two reasons for all of these wars and that seems to make sense to me. I think they did a good job of explaining why wars happen. This article is from a website that has a lot of other useful information on it that may be worth checking out. Overall, I think this is a good way for a young person to learn the basics of conflict in the world.
Although their homeland is in a constant conflict that centers on religion, the Muslim and Jewish people in this part of New York City are working toward better understanding each other's religions. This article shows how they decided to get more involved with each other and try to find something in common, instead of just deciding they didn't like each other because of that one part of their lives.
Causes and consequences of two world wars and a global depression.
This article tells the reader about the history of the conflict in the Middle East area of the Gaza Strip. The area has been the subject of armed battles for a long time, as the Jewish and Muslim sides both think that they should have control of it. It is hard to believe how the people in this part of the world live, it is very sad to learn about the lack of water, electricity and medical care. The article also says that in a few years the area might not be able to have anyone living in it at all, which is scary because the people would have to find another place to live. I think this article is a good way to learn about how many people can be affected by conflict that they didn't create and how many people have been killed as a result of the fighting. It seems like they should have been able to solve this by now, but they haven't.
