Portraying it as a conflict between similar nationalisms (Jewish and Arab), Rabil (Iraq Foundation, Washington, D.C.) explores the conflict-ridden relationship between Syria and Israel with a focus on the role of their competing efforts to assert control over Lebanon by proxy war. He attempts to comprehensively cover the range of political considerations impacting both regimes, including the domestic political forces of all three countries, the role of the United States as the regions sole superpower, security and water concerns, and the impact of the various peace conferences.
