Abstract

At the foreign policy level of hegemonic power in the post-Cold War international system, ideas play a pivotal role in justifying the goals of U.S. foreign policy as hegemonic power in the international system and, consequently, guide the country's performance on the universal stage. In this respect, US foreign policy during recent decades has been based on comprehensive support and absolute alignment with Israel's interests in the Middle East and at the level of the international system. This article aims at examining the hegemonic influence of the United States in the Middle East with a focus targeted at Israel's security. The most important legacy of US foreign policy over the Middle East has been Israel's strategic shift toward building security of Israel in the Middle East. On the other hand, unilateralism based on Israel's security has been at odds with security in the Middle East. 

Keywords: United States, Israel, Jewish lobby, foreign policy - unilateralism, hegemony, realism.
