Displayed here are various United States Federal government documents produced over the last 60 years regarding Palestine and Israel.  We have presidential statements from Eisenhower to George W. Bush, State Department informational pamphlets, Defense Department country studies, Congressional hearings and House and Senate documents.  Early documents mainly state U.S. policy toward the entire region of the Middle East.  Later, they address the problems between the Israeli and Palestinian governments and express a constant hope for peace.
