I plain to explore the different types of religions in Iraq and what it is like for the people in Iraq with different religions. I will also explore why there are civil wars in Iraq because of different religions. This topic interests me because the civil war between religions in Iraq has been going on for a long time, and I want to know why. I have never been able to understand why and know I will be able to.
My paper will involve the questions:

3. What caused different religious believers start to not like each other?
4. Is this happening in different countries?
5. Are there specific leaders in these thing ...view middle of the document...
