The study of the Middle Eastern objectives of Israel as a regional power is divided into five chapters. The introductory chapter presents hypotheses that Israel is a regional power and asks what its regional objectives are. The second chapter is divided into two parts, the first of which explains how current international relations impact theoretical approaches and makes them the product of time, or echo of what is actually happening. as a result, the author contends that the majority of anglo- american theoretical production is essentially post-factum and designed to explain only what has already occurred, rather than offering patterns that can explain future interactions among units of the international system. The second part of the chapter presents an overview of the literature on regional powers and offers the minimal definition of a regional power. The third chapter corroborates hypotheses that Israel is a regional power, while the fourth part of the text analyses the Middle Eastern objectives of Israel’s policies. The concluding part briefly presents the overview of the current state of objectives that Israel has reached and how Iran remains its strongest contestant.
