The focus here shall be on the analysis of the Middle East (Israeli – Palestine) deeply divided politics and security complex structure of the region. I shall approach the conflict (Israeli – Palestine) from the access point of; the USA (power mediator) and the critical analysis of matters arising in the conflict and the region within the last ten years. Answers to questions such as; what are the causes of security problems in the region (a bit of history will be considered)? What are the aims of the mediator and facilitator actor role?

A theoretical explanation shall be analysed and in the end, one shall understand whether there is an ongoing conflict management, an already established resolution or whether there is a peace building process on course in the region.

The very day the state of Israel was established on May 14, 1948, US recognised the sovereignty of Israel, thus US – Israel relations began from that point. From my vast reading, research and understanding, I would say that before the Israel – Palestine conflict erupted, the United States of America was fully aware of the status quo in the state of Palestine and to a great extent, the US has important specific data about the Middle East as a whole.
