The only way to stop this is to convince the Muslims that Allah isn't happy with their efforts, how do you do that?

A massive defeat.

The Muslims have lost 3 major wars (Israeli war of independence (November 1947 – July 1949), Six-Day War (June 1967), and Yom Kippur War (October 1973)), along with numerous smaller skirmishes over the last 70 years and reality still hasn't set in for some. I doubt that it ever will.
I don't know, but I do know the media ain't helping. Like this:
Fracking Will Make US World’s Largest Fossil Fuel Supplier By 2023, Says IEA

March 8th, 2018 by Steve Hanley

Fracking will make the United States the largest supplier of oil and gas in the world by 2023, Fatih Birol, head of the International Energy Agency said at the CERAWeek energy conference hosted by IHS Markit in Houston last week.

“What is happening in the US between now and 2025 [is] a huge expansion of oil production, about 80% of the global oil production growth comes from the US. It exceeds the huge expansion of Saudi Arabia which we witnessed in the 1960s and 70s,” he told The Guardian before the conference began. “Non-OPEC supply growth is very, very strong, which will change a lot of parameters of the oil market in the next years to come,” Birol told the press in Houston. “We are going to see a major second wave of U.S. shale production coming.”

And ends with this:
Energy Is Power

Remember those geo-political consequences alluded to earlier? Plentiful supplies of natural gas are helping several European countries thumb their noses at Russia, which used to be their primary source of gas for heating in the winter. “The U.S. supply of oil and natural gas has contributed to political upheaval in the Middle East, creating new competition for oil exports, and in Russia, a leading supplier of natural gas to Europe,” says Time. Melting in the Arctic may lead to warfare between several nations as they rush to exploit the oil and gas reserves beneath the sea ice and ice cap.

The tragedy of all this is that the US is poised to plunge headlong into being the principal source of new carbon dioxide emissions in coming years. What a legacy for a country that claims it wants to become great again but will be the primary cause of tipping the global environment over into irreversible calamity. Republicans will be able to take pleasure in the fact that they placed profits and political power ahead of the lives of their children and grandchildren. That’s a political legacy anyone who has no acquaintance with the concept of ethics can really be proud of.
We've a chance to unseat Islam and Russia as top energy producers.

Plus there's Israel's fraclking fields in the Med:
Fueling impunity: Israel’s gas exports to Europe
February 27, 2018
/ By

Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC)
European Union

Ongoing talks on the possibility of EU purchases of Israel’s natural gas put into question the EU’s commitment to Palestinian rights under international law.
Gas israel

The EU has made a strong commitment towards energy transition to renewable sources and has developed an ambitious strategy to meet Paris Agreement climate change targets. At the same time the EU has spent millions in the recent years on new gas infrastructure projects and billions of euros more are expected for 104 new gas projects included in the third list of Projects of Common Interest (PCI) published by the Commission.

Natural gas is a fossil fuel composed of methane, which is 86 times more potent as a heat-trapping gas than CO2. With this massive investment, the EU is locking its dependence on fossil fuel for decades to come. As a recent report has shown, the gas corporate lobby is entrenching Europe’s addiction to fossil fuels. In 2016 alone, “gas corporations and their lobby groups spent over €100 million on influencing EU [energy] policy, with more than 1,000 lobbyists on their payroll. … By comparison, public interest groups lobbying against new gas infrastructure managed to mobilise just 3% of industry’s spending.”

This not only puts into question the EU’s ability to meet climate change targets but also give rise to serious human rights concerns and the adverse social impact on communities where the pipelines are expected to cross.

Ongoing talks on the possibility of EU purchases of Israel’s natural gas put into question the EU’s commitment to Palestinian rights under international law. As this briefing by the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) explains, by purchasing gas from Israel, whether directly or indirectly, the EU would become complicit in Israel’s illegal annexation of the occupied Palestinian territory, its illegal settlements and the war crime of pillage of Palestinian natural resources - all in contravention of the EU’s international commitments and legal obligations.

(Continued) ... rts-europe
BDS is PAL sponsored, they're worried!

If the Muslims lose their ACE in the hole (oil) and end up as also rans in energy, that might be seen as a major defeat and an act of Allah.

History is just one damn thing after another.

The Palestinians are attempting to breach the border with Israel: ... sts-549717

(video at above link).

They are going to have to up their game if they have any hope of being successful.

I would suggest they review this for how to breach barbed wire roll fence:
