Peter, I get what he is saying, but we have to keep the oil flowing and we can't let Israel just get run over by Arabs. So we will always be at war with them and not much we can do, if they will not understand this.
Here is the thing... we HAVE to have a presence over there. If it's because of the oil, so be it. If it's technology, minerals, ministry, helping to build communities, help educate their military, or commerce, whatever, it's a good thing. No more closed off countries where they are left to their own devices. We need to know what is going on within their borders for our security, and the good people who are there's security (whether they are Muslim or not.) And yes, also for Israel.
