Western Civ's Last Surviving Chance at ME Peace in Question

Reader comment on item: How Fares Western Civ?
in response to reader comment: Isolation and Alienation - Collateral Issues of Peace

Troubling influences developing in the processes underway after Israel's breakthrough agreements of peace with once hostile intentions of the likes of the UAE, Bahrain, now potentially the Sudan and even Saudi Arabia, other contenders in the region seeking undue control are increasing efforts to keep the region unbalanced and are seeking their own agreements of eliminating the American influences of Kushner and Pompeo, perceived threats to the processes of eliminating Israel.
The impending results of the American election for the office of the President are now appearing to be an essential tell of how the Middle East might end up in reshaping the reginal politics; some are not going to endure those results and in an effort to keep that from happening, something preemptive may be in the offing. An effort to expel 'Western' influences altogether may seem to be the indicated way to go.
The Turkish-Libyan-Iranian triad may foster the proxy paradigm's renewed approach to fostering more unrest that will eventually lead to outright breakout efforts in the region - unbalancing seems to work.
Predominantly, it appears that the Arabic Islamic influences are attempting to get a handle on the non-Arabic influences in the region, long a sense of such intimations of overt influences that keep Sunni Muslims at odds with Shia Muslims. This is seen in the issues of the proxies and their allegiances. But more compelling, those internal religious mentalities are no longer easily influenced in the old ways of interfacing with the Western intrusions of control; Russians appear to be more conducive to Islamic defense than Western (read NATO) spheres of defensive influences. When it does breakout, whose alliances are going to survive?
