The American foreign policy is the rules and regulations governing the interaction between and among its organizations, institutions and citizens with the rest of the world. Its ultimate goal is to create a secure, stable and democratic environment that will lead to mutual benefit of the American people and the rest of the world .
Israel is famous for being a war tone country with the Palestine’s. The war has been fought for unending years and some believe that it is biblical . The American policy supports Israel’s efforts to combat terrorism. This is done through the administrative foreign policy that offers military assistance to the Israel Defence force. America supports the Israel mission because Israel is the major non-NATO allies in the Middle East .
There has been immense human rights violation by the Israel’s Defence Force and the American government should speak against it. Even though the war against terrorism is highly accepted by the world, the Israel’s Army is known to shoot and kill suspects who have not been convicted or even tried . There is also the treatment of the Palestine’s as inferior and this leads to retaliations like bombing of places leading to death of many innocent people.
As much as Israel is known to reject even constructive criticism, the American army should ensure that the human rights of the Palestine’s are protected . This will also avoid the retaliation attacks that leave behind many casualties. The Israel’s defence force should be held accountable for all their actions and should offer logical explanations and if not they should be banned and heavy sanctions should be placed on them. These sanctions should include decrease in the military and economic support from the American government .
American policy should also be against the use of weapons of mass destruction that are widely used by the Israel’s Defence Force. This will help in resolving the war in a less violent and more amicable way.
