The Book a Long Way Gone shows the reader what happens when a nation goes through a civil war. “This is one of the consequences of the civil war. “People stop trusting each other, and every stranger becomes an enemy” (Beah, 37). When most people hear civil war they think of adults fighting for power, but never how they get that power. In the cases of counties like Serria Leone they turn to children to do the grunt work of war. Political instability is caused by corrupt politicians who only care about lining their own pockets rather than taking care of those who live in their country.

The Syrian Civil War has been prolonged further than ever anticipated. With casualties reaching the hundreds of thousands, this war has left permanent impacts on families across all of Syria.

The early Islamic period has an undeniable impact on shaping the Middle East. In the pre-Islamic age, Sassanid and Byzantine Empires were superior forces in the Middle East, which had their own political autonomy and civilization. However, the emergence of Islamic civilization, the superiority and impact of these two empires broke down, and the Middle East started to be reshaped and ruled by Arab-Muslims. The early Islamic era contributed significant alterations to the Middle East, including the religion of Islam, well-organized administration, urbanism, and social changes. However, according to some scholars, such changes have a pre-Islamic character which implies that reshaping of the Middle East started before the emergence of Islam (Bennison

Currently, there are 4 million Syrian refugees registered in the region. By mid-2015, the World Bank’s estimated cost of the Syrian war for the Middle Eastern countries is $35 billion.

The Bosnian Genocide also known as the Bosnian War or Crisis is a direct result from internal and external neglect.

There is a belief among people that declares religion as the main cause of wars worldwide, and it has been the main cause of violence throughout the history of humanity. While we cannot deny that, some battles such as the crusades and the Lebanese civil war were based on religious faith, it is totally illogical to consider religion as the main cause of wars. Moreover, although there is also no disagreement that some extremist in Islam were behind 9/11, it is considered a misjudgment to say that all individuals in this religion convey the concept of violence and cruelty. The fact is non-religious incentives take the responsibility for almost all of humans’ wars. Lives lost during religious wars are nothing compared to those lost during non-religious wars.so why people believe that religion is the cause of wars, why they are wrong and do the extremist represent religions?
