US Policy towards Jerusalem and the Occupied Arab Territories 1948 and 1967
Author: Candace Karp (2001)
Examinations of the issue of Jerusalem in 1948-1949 and the controversies surrounding Israeli territorial acquisition in June 1967 focus upon the essence of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Along with the Palestinian refugee question, events in 1948-1949 and 1967 have produced intractable problems, for which there are now very few solutions. Both examples, however, highlight the large extent to which the United States sabotaged its own position in the Middle East. While regional actors certainly exacerbated the situation for Washington, and Moscow for that matter, throughout the Cold War, the United State was largely instrumental in its own undoing.
