Decades of popular struggle, diplomatic efforts (mostly sterile), and attempts to cope with a suffocating occupation have taken their toll on ordinary people as well as on the leadership. Palestine remains a burning issue in public opinion in the Arab and Muslim worlds, as regularly measured by polls and overwhelming anecdotal evidence, and the new satellite and internet media have if anything accentuated its salience. “Palestine fatigue”, then, may be a fairly ubiquitous global condition at the beginning of the conflict's second century. Every American administration since the Second World War has understood the Middle East to be a vital security concern, and the overwhelming majority of Middle East specialists both inside and outside the government have insisted that the Palestine conflict is at the heart of the tensions across the region as a whole that so worry America's foreign policy elites.
