Should Washington Promote Middle-East Democracy?
Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, December 2012
A debate has formed in Washington about America's role in the Middle East. In order to respond, policymakers need to have a clear understanding of U.S. interests in the Middle East before they respond with a strategic plan that outlines our goals. A significant deterrent lies in the fact that many Middle Eastern countries do not possess the preconditions for a successful democracy. American leadership and democracy promotion should focus on the development of secular, nationalist and liberal political organizations that could compete with Islamic parties.
