The Crisis in American-Israeli Relations. A Balance of Barack Obama’s First Term as President
Languages of publication
The United States traditionally played a crucial role in the Near East, mainly as a catalyst of progress in the peace process. Therefore the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was one of the most pressing problems faced by the administration of Barack Obama. Initially it seemed that the President of the USA, who announced “his own way” of solving the conflict, would prove to be more efficient and reliable than e.g. his predecessor in the White House. The starting point was to be an improvement of the USA’s relations with the Muslim world, among others due to America’s stronger support of Palestinian postulates. However, Obama’s tactic turned out to be ineffective; instead of restoring America’s position and improving its image in the Near East, it resulted in a loss of confidence in Obama by both parties to the conflict. The most conspicuous effect of his endeavors was a crisis in American-Israeli relations and lack of progress in the Near East peace process.
