ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the role of the U.S. in the Arab-Israeli conflict. The U.S. government has tried to promote a settlement of the Arab-Israeli dispute for the maintenance of Israeli security and the preservation of friendly ties with Arab countries. The U.S. has been committed in looking out for the safety of the Jews, while keeping continued access to the oil reserves of the Arab world. It has had success in reducing the threat imposed by the Arab-Israeli conflict on global stability, but has failed in promoting an actual resolution of the dispute. An account of the historical involvement by the U.S. with the Palestinians and the Jews is presented. It was the Palestine Liberation Organization that called for the dismantling of Israel by sponsoring several acts of terrorism.
