(2009) cites, “the US arms uncritically supports Israel in its barbaric war against the Palestinians; it is hard to overemphasize the damage this does to the American image and interest in the Middle East” (p. 3). The foreign policy that focused only on the home security and border defense boosted sales of weapons but by cutting down the values of morality to a great extent.
More logically, transformation of aggression and enmity into productive enthusiasm based on humanity can improve the situations and manage the conflicts to a great level. But the US foreign policy faces the criticism for arrogance against Muslims. A journal critically points out that “the zealotry that led to the tragedy of September 11th cannot be tolerated, but some grievances in the Islamic world deserve more serious consideration by Americans” (Johnson & Caruson, 2003, p. 9). Instead of the focusing on rivalry, America can utilize foreign interest in education and scientific researches by inviting global partnership. The country can make ties with developing economies and promote global peace. It can also stop instigating wars for the settlement of international issues, and promote the prospects of modernization through westernization in the fighting countries.
