What is it about the middle East that's gets everyone's goat

I know that the Palestinians and the Lebanese suffer greatly at the hands of the Israelis. I also know that the Israelis are surrounded by people who want to start where Hitler left off. But why is the middle east such a big issue. It gets more coverage, more time dedicated to it, and takes less lives then famines in Africa and dictatorships in North Korea.

Is it a race thing with the left believing that white people can do no right and the right thinking that white people can do no wrong. Is is religion? Is it the big guy vs the small guy. Or is it just instead of the famine in Ethiopia in the 80s the cool thing to be concerned about.

Can anyone explain it to me.

Oil Simon ~ the middle-east gets more attention because of oil.
