Can anyone explain to me all the conflicts going on in the middle east?

I am always so confused. I live in New Zealand, so I don't get constant coverage of everything going on there, and I was pretty youn when all the stuff with iraq began, and I'm so confused now. I don't know which terrorist group come from which countries, and what different conflicts are going on.

Who is fighting over the gaza strip and why? What is the israel-palestine conflict? Whats going on in Iran and Iraq? Where are the the terrorists groups from (Al quedia and Taliban?) and in which war is America involved in?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Oh dear. I think it would be best if you tried and researched it yourself...
