Abstract : This assessment will analyze the Israeli-Arab peace process by exploring the 'Land for Peace' argument; focusing upon Israel's recent history, diverse demographics, economic factors and water resources throughout the region. Further, the reality of Israel's lack of land mass to give her strategic depth will be addressed from the perspective of current weapons technology. Finally, the role of U.S. National Security Strategy towards regional stability and peace will be assessed.
