Abstract : Identification, examination and analysis of U.S. domestic factors that effect Congress' decision to approve arms sales to moderate Arab countries in the Middle East. A discussion on the increasing Congressional control on arms sales and how it has given some countries like France, United Kingdom and the Soviet Union the opportunity to take advantage of the situation and to sell their arms to moderate Arab countries. Jordan case study provides an example of a moderate Arab country turned down by Congress and tries elsewhere to satisfy its national security requirements. Several recommendations are suggested for future activities by moderate Arab states to help them in paving the way for future Congressional approval of arms sales.
