US needs to change its policy towards ME
I've got one important lesson from the September 11; that is the terrorist activities leading to the attacks were not just a story about one country. They were a multi-enterprise activity with a global network of deeply connected operatives. Especially, its impact on the modern Middle Eastern Muslim countries was tremendously negative and highly alarming.  
Later, the dramatic changes in the Middle East and subsequent activities of Israel have made several thousand more homelessness in Palestine in the last few years.  Despite multi-dimensional international diplomacy, some things have changed in the ME while others have remained the same.
There is no doubt that, the US acts as the sole extra-regional hegemonic power on the basis of its military pre-eminence in the area, guaranteeing the persistence of pro-Western regimes. The US policy in ME is apparently pro-Israel. Besides, the US external support for the monarchies in Saudi Arabia and the smaller Persian Gulf states has also proven critical for this region.
I think, the US will have to change its policy towards ME. The time is not far way.
