Example text

The current policies themselves have been meeting some stiff and vociferous criticism from an articulate spectrum of American people and groups, including liberal writers and Hollywood celebrities, who, however, seem somewhat beleaguered by a national mood, fearful for traditional values and general security. Nonetheless, America’s apparent zeal, under the present Administration, to enforce a Pax Americana over the old possessions of the British and French Empires in the Middle East, with its own initial version of the imperial governor (a Bremer–Cromer–Kleber26), does not, at first sight, seem to augur well for a smooth acceptance of America’s role (or medicine) by many Arabs.

Nor should it be understood as driven by a desire to establish a ‘Semitic’ alliance against an imagined hostile ‘West’, one which both Arabs and Jews have contributed to and benefited from, and should continue to do so. However, such a partnership would test the Western powers’ sincerity in seeing a genuine peace in the region, one that they have been sermonizing about for a long time but which may see Arab petrodollars eventually invested in Arab–Israeli industry and development instead of languishing idly in Western banks or boosting multi-billion-dollar arms exports into the region.

With Iraq being seen as a major test case, it is debatable whether the Arab regimes, when the good dividends of a post-Saddam American-sponsored regime have come to manifest themselves in the eventual establishment in that country of the promised democracy, accountability, rule of law, and economic prosperity, in addition to the vital but now seriously endangered ingredient of national unity, will have the will or desire to take the American assistance to the heights which the West Germans and the Japanese took it to after the Second World War.
