I'll try to dumb it down a bit, so we are not getting out of hand with this.
The Soviet agenda for the middle east was pretty much “prevent the alleviation of regional conflict thereby assuring the USSR of continued access to the region, while also seeking to prevent the escalation of these conflicts to the level of superpower confrontation”. Literal warmongering just to fill the necessity of long-term entrenchment in the middle east.
America sought to deny the Soviets access to Middle Eastern territory and, through the policy of containment, inhibit the expansion of the Soviet sphere of influence. This defensive agenda has been complemented by the guardianship of Israel, attempts to broker Arab Israeli peace, and preserve US access to oil.
I would argue that this conflict is the reason why most of the middle east hates Israel and the US, and modern day tensions in the region stem largely if not entirely from this conflict between superpowers.
One huge clusterfuck of a proxy war, basically.
Pardon me, but the sentiment that "yea it was so peaceful before that." is shortsighted and idiotic.

Its not a religious thing at all. Look at europe in the middle ages, it was a fucking shithole. Wars all the time, nobody bathed, fucking no medicine worth mentioning, the church ruled with an iron fist, the list goes on. It just so happens that the middle east isnt quite out of this point of their history.
