Miller has claimed about the fact that within the time when America was trying to make a peace agreement between Israel and Arabs, Clinton has made many efforts with the support of the tenth prime minister of Israel Ehud Barak, in 1999. Barak promised to overcome the conflict between Israel and Arabs and, therefore, with the help of Clinton Barak started negotiation with Syria. Miller claims that efforts appeared as not worthy to resolve the conflict, as it was deeply rooted within the generations. Miller has also claimed the fact that Bush had faced the worst time about the conflict between Israel and Arabs. When he was elected as president of the United States, many troubles already existed among Israel and Arabs. Most of the Palestinian people attempted suicide because of the cruelty of the Israeli military. At that time, Bush only observed the tensions that were increasing day by day because of Israel’s military operation, especially in Palestine.
Miller has tried to show readers the tensions that America has gained while involved in the peace process. In this regard, America has decided to act one last time for the peace agreement between Israel and Arabs. However, because of the intensity of conflicts between Israel and Arabs, America raised questions about “Why should We Care?” (Miller, 363). The authors have talked about the efforts made by the United States to resolve the tensions between Israel and Arabs. In this regard, America has tried to link Arabs and Israel, as two opposing regions of the world. But, as a result, the linkage influenced the policy of America because Arabs demanded many things, influential to the administration and policy-makers of America.
The authors have claimed that neoconservatives also tried to resolve the tensions between Israel and Arabs. However, they identified that Arabs reject Israel and, for this reason, the better option for America is to show disengagement within the peace process. In reality, without acceptance of Israel by Arabs, peace is not possible and, hence the involvement of America will be wasted. The authors also talked about the real myths about the involvement of America within the peace project. In this respect, the authors claimed that engagement within the peace project required America to pay the high costs over the use of its resources and foreign policy.
Also, the engagement of America within the peace project will damage the standing position of America within the Middle East and, therefore, not valuable for America to further involve within the peace process, as realistic mythology of the peace process. Finally, the authors have claimed the fact that America has tried to be directly involved in the peace process. In this concern, America has tried to make peace in the Middle East because peace in the region was necessary for American national security interests. Also, they claimed that America has tried to resolve the conflict by changing its approach to reach peace, whereas acting against some groups who were overwhelming to the peace process.
