It also serves to explain why foreign policies in the Middle East are so hugely affected by religion. Though there is a mix of factors which influences Middle East foreign policies, policymakers have never been able to ignore the factor of religion which is a very powerful means of controlling or shaping the image of Middle East.

It also hopes to improve understanding of this relationship between the two entities. The countries covered in this discussion are Iraq, Kuwait, Egypt, and Syria.Some suggest that bringing religion into international relations is not a modern or thoughtful strategy, but the state in the region of Middle East is different.
