Assessing the Impact of U.S.-Israeli Relations on the Arab World

Excerpt

As a global power, the United States has often been required to balance and manage good relations with a host of states that view each other with suspicion and hostility. In no other region of the world has this problem been more acute than the Middle East, where difficulties between the Palestinians and Israelis continue to complicate U.S. policy. In recent times, U.S. Middle Eastern policy has been especially challenging as the result of differing regional perspectives on the global war on terrorism, the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and the post-war U.S. military presence in that country.

In this important monograph, Dr. Lenore Martin of Emmanuel College addresses the challenge that U.S. policymakers face in managing relations with numerous regional allies, including Israel and a host of moderate Arab states. These states often maintain differing concerns and are responding to diverse domestic and international pressures when they seek to influence the United States. These regional concerns and interests are thoroughly analyzed throughout this monograph. Additionally, the special importance of the Palestinian question is well-represented, with nuances of regional opinion carefully reflected.

The Strategic Studies Institute is pleased to offer this study to help deepen U.S. understanding of critical issues and trends in this vitally important region of the world.
