    Despite developments in Syria and Iraq, Jordan is "persevering," as the World Bank and IMF noted. Yet the kingdom's remarkable resilience and continued stability are by no means guaranteed, and are likely to become more tenuous as regional security deteriorates. At this critical time, ongoing substantial U.S. and Gulf economic support is necessary. The Syrian refugee issue in Lebanon is threatening to become the real humanitarian crisis in the region. There are more Syrian refugees in Lebanon than in any other country in the region. Straddled by a weak economy, domestic political infighting, and internal divisions over the crisis in Syria, Lebanon is finding it hard to cope with the evolving problem inside its borders.

    Jordan has had to build up its military and intelligence capabilities to become a counterterrorism partner, absorb refugees to quell regional security concerns, and ensure its own domestic social.   King Abdullah’s Warning on Syria.

      After nearly 70 years of cautious, arm’s-length relations, Israel and Japan have recently moved to significantly upgrade diplomatic and business ties. Over the past several years, the two countries have entered into a number of important political and economic agreements, transforming their once limited bilateral relationship into one more characteristic of allied partners.   Israel and a possible regional security system The elimination of the so-called “Northern Front” as a result of domestic instability in Iraq and devastating civil war in Syria, coupled.
