Simple Guide to War in the Middle East

I borrowed this pictorial from Slate, which oversimplifies the warring factions in the Middle East.

The summary here is that there are no good guys and bad guys here, but there is a range of conflicting beliefs and desired outcomes that are at odds with one another.

If this summary suffices, feel free to stop here. I encourage all three of you readers to use this as a starting point that will lead you to more thorough explanations of peace in the Middle East, or lack thereof.
