Abstract: The object of this essay is to try to explain the ideas and policies that guide the peace process in the Middle East between the Arab states and Israel. It will outline the history of the conflict, beginning with Israel's creation in 1948, up until the current day. The paper will also explain the past, present, and future role of the United States in this volatile region of the world. Having been one of world's two superpowers following World War II, and today, as the only great power, the United States' role in the peace process and all Middle Eastern politics has been gigantic. This is especially true in regards to the policies and existence of the state of Israel. Israel's past and future are directly linked to the desires and interests of the United States, and by studying the history of this relationship, one can better understand the goals and objectives of the two allies. Without knowing the policies of the United States, one cannot accurately assess the future of the Israeli/Arab movement towards peace. The history of the Middle East is dominated by the forces of international powers, and today that means the United States. Thus, forty years of the Cold War drastically effected the existence of all of the nations that are located in the Middle East, and the end of this Cold War might mean a change in the forty years of hostility in the region.
