Moreover, they are one of the drivers of the Abraham accords and the warming relationship between Israel and the Suni Muslim countries in the Middle East.
Why is the American Military withdrawing from the Middle East?
The Middle East (or MENA) was probably one of the most significant regions in the second half of the 20th Century, starting from World War 1 when the empires started using oil guzzling weapons and needed the Middle Eastern Oil, and into the 21st century.
