There has been no greater relationship in the last half of the twentieth century and currently than the relationship between the United States and Israel. Both parties do benefit from the relationship, but the benefits that Israel receives surpass the benefits that the United States receives in turn. The purpose of this Capstone thesis was to explore the problematic relationship between the two nations and how the relationship could be alter to benefit both nations equally. The method of research was the reading and analysis of policy makers from Israel and the United States, government documents and research orchestrated from Political Science and History Professors that are experts in Middle Eastern affairs. The significance of the project is to inform the audience how the relationship must be changed in order to have a more positive relation and foreign policy in the region. The conclusion was a constructive display of altering the foreign policy and also reinforcing Israel's security through appeasement and creating a national homeland for Palestinians.
