US Foreign policy is what the United States of America does in foreign
countries. This may include setting new rules or even controlling the countries’ governments.
What the US does in other countries usually ends up creating a conflict or an uprising in the
region. US foreign policy makes the world very unstable and it causes disagreements between
countries. The Israel Lobby has a great deal of negative influence on US foreign policy. The
US is also very keen to destroy Wahabbist ideas and to exploit countries’ resources.
The Israel Lobby causes a lot of instability and unbalanced power
between countries in the Middle East. The Israel Lobby is the term used to describe the group
of people that influence US foreign policy for Israel’s own interest. There are groups and
organizations such as the AIPAC (American Israeli Public Affairs Committee) which tend to
influence US foreign policy to support Israel and making policies that support the Israeli
government. An example of these interests is gaining territory which is under the control of
other countries. Golan Heights, territory on the borders of Syria and Israel, was controlled by
Israel after the Six Day War in 1967. The US supported Israel a bit in this war and if Israel
hadn’t known that the US was supporting it, it wouldn’t have been part of this war. Israel
knew it had the support of the US and it depended on this support throughout history and
that’s why it has all this extra territory and control over the area. The US supports Israel in all
conflicts, letting other countries with no chance of victory against Israel. This destroys the
balance of power since Israel is allied to a superpower while others fight on their own. Israel
Lobby groups put great pressure on Congressmen in the US so they could pass laws that help
Israel keep its dominance in the Middle East. AIPAC pressured congresswomen Betty
McCollum when she decided not to agree on a law passed to support Israel. They used press
and the media to make her accept this law so they could get what they wanted for Israel. Israel
is stopping nationalism in the Middle East so it can get control of the oil reserves. The US
supports this fully since they’re going to take their share of the oil. This is another example of
how the Israel Lobby influences what the US does in other countries. The Israel Lobby has a
a lot influence on the US and the US foreign policy in the Middle East is based on Israel’s
interest. These interests are achieved by violence and wars and this is how the US foreign
policy creates conflict in the Middle East.
The US has the goal to eliminate Wahhabist ideas which cause the
Wahhabists to fight even more for their religion and ideas, causing conflict in the area.
Wahhabism is a conservative form of Islam which is practiced in Saudi...
