why this will be in a textbook?
This conflict between these two Arab groups has not received enough attention as it should have. This genocide is really occurring and over 400,000 people have died due to this. We should learn about this so that it doesn’t happen again. More people should know that even in the 21 st century things like this can and do happen, and that genocide is not just a part of the past.
