They're zone ripe for conflict, just look.

Vast deposits of oil.
2 opposing religions claim rights to the same holy lands.
Dictators naturally pry on people's growing resentment to outsiders, fail to live up to expectations/are cruel and horrible and then get overthrown

Oil is hyper important, religion is still very important to the middle east and dictators have a history of being not very good folk, it's this hotbed of global usefulness, religious fervor and tyrranical dictators.

Religion is always going to bring about war. If everyone had the outlook of Mr. Mackey from south park on drugs, no one would do drugs because they're bad mkay. Fight about something stupid with your better half then in the middle just go "I'm right and you're wrong" without anything tangible to hold onto and see where you sleep tonight.

Beside wars involving America and Israel there are still countless many wars between each other and within each nation. Why is that?

If you look at the history of the middle east. Its due to many different reasons such a colonization, religion, communism occupations and ethnic ties. Its a big mess of culture and power.

Ever play the civilization games? In the early game everything is fine, you could scout out as many as 5 other civ's within the twenty blocks in any direction. Thats fine, people can live their lives, I just want to expand and make a few more cities so we can have a dedicated farmland and a dedicated research location. Plenty of room for everyone, no need to fight.

Flash forward a hundred turns....

GET THE &#%@ AWAY FROM THOSE HORSES I NEED THEM FOR CHARIOTS YOU SON OF A %*@%.

Essentially as borders expand and start rubbing against each other, conflicts arise. As large civilizations absorb or ally small ones, they inherent the old conflicts as well. As valuable resources get discovered, or used up and need to be replaced, outlying areas become more and more contested.
