ABSTRACT
The article reports on the effect of the Democratic Party's control of the U.S. House of Representatives on the U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. Exit polls revealed that the government's handling of the war in Iraq had been high on voters' minds during the mid-term elections on November 7, 2006. Many in the region hope the Democrat victory will trigger greater U.S. engagement in the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.
