Where is US Strategy in Middle East Heading to

“Israeli” Maariv daily, in its issue published today Tuesday, stated, “US President Barack Obama’s visit [to “Israel”] renewed hope that the US administration might have a plotted policy for the future of the Middle East.”
According to the daily, “US prestigious councils analyzed the complex reality of the Arab Spring in light of recent transitory developments in the region.”
“The mentality of prominent US administration personnel and the President himself refers to the principle of a ‘rational player’. There is no way to make sure, however, that what is considered rational in the West is similar to players in the Middle East. The difference is after all that happened, based on the ‘rational player’ mentality, not only did it reap no results, but is considered, in many cases, as a side of weakness by the West in Middle Eastern players’ view,” the paper mentioned.

Moreover, the daily reported “there is another strategic fiasco, namely Russia and China rising above international support that shatters regimes, including the Iranian and Syrian regimes.”

“This is, at best, a basic misunderstanding that Russia and China would let the US and the West be the only key players. The West did not succeed in deactivating Russia and China’s authority in our region, and there will not be a real change in the upcoming period.”

“The revolution in Egypt brought the Muslim Brotherhood into office with a bloody price. This organization is an outsider, whether in “Israel” or the Western world, and yet, in one historical moment, the Muslim Brotherhood came into office.”
“More and more people close to the US president advise him to undergo dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood, since they believe Mursi and his reign will conduct peace with “Israel” and counter terrorism,” Maariv wrote.
On a similar note, the “Israeli” daily saw that Syria was a highly complicated matter.

“Until now, the US has refrained from militarily intervening with the rebels, who are nothing but a group of extremists. However, the US, Turkey, and “Israel’s” policy is to stop the smuggling of unconventional weapons to terrorists, especially Hizbullah,” Maariv mentioned.
“The Marmara incident was merely a short phase in comparison to the challenge awaiting “Israel” and Turkey to stop the grave danger looming in Syria,” Maariv believed.
