Abstract

The two Bush administrations have approached post-Cold War US foreign policy in the Middle East in different ways. This difference can be attributed to differing visions for the region held by elite policymakers and what they have perceived as national security threats. Thus, George H. W. Bush's policies on Israel varied according to his interpretation of US regional interests, while his son George W. Bush's unilateralism and desire for regional change have dovetailed into his Israeli policy.
