You have drilled down to the root of the problem. You said, "...all they (middle eastern countries) need is an order and discipline in their lives which can only come through islamic laws."

This means that order and discipline is only achievable through Islam. However, Great Britain, Germany, the US, Japan and many countries have achieved this goal without Islam. As a matter of fact, in the west we have profited by seperating the laws of our religion and our state.

Please take a look at the other possibilities that are available and then you wouldn't be so fearful for the future of the middle east.
