The conflict between Israel and Palestine has been the world’s major source of instability. Americans are openly linked to Israeli-Palestine conflict, and gradually endangered by its devastation. The relations of Israel and United States are critical factor in the American’s government overall policy in the Middle East. As such, the congress has placed significant importance on continuance of a secure and supportive affiliation. The distinguished expression of congressional support for Israel has been foreign aid. Notably, in the Fiscal year 2013, Israel received $8.5 million per day from United States government in military aid.
At least 77 UN resolutions have targeted Israel, while only one has been aimed at Palestine. Conscientiously and painfully clear, the ethnic cleansing of Palestine expelled great majority of Palestine from their homes from 1947- 1949. This was absolutely essential in creating a Jewish State in a region that occupied by 70% Christians and Muslims. This cleansing spirit leaves on where Israel Jews have continued to favor expelling of Palestinian with Israel citizenship. Israel has only 260 Jewish-only settlements that have been built on sequestered Palestinian land while Palestinians do not possess any settlement on Israeli land.
The upheaval that shook the Middle East early in 2011 has led to essential reregulation of American policies in the Middle East. Arguably, this is unfavorable time to press for Israeli-Palestine peace. The American basic support for Israel is for its security and Jewish State and major non-treaty tactical ally. This support complicates Palestinian Authority to receive support for its position in facing Israel policies of increase of settlement and its rejection to relinquish more territory. Latest events have demonstrated that American’s position on a final accord largely reflects on Israeli concerns and de-prioritizing critical concerns of Palestine.
