Preferred Abstract (Original): 

 The impacts of the Arab Spring on the Palestinian issue are very significant and have cast a cloud of uncertainty over the Middle East. The question of Palestine has been deeply influenced by regional and political trends over which the Palestinians had negligible influence for the last six decades. Palestine has been exposed to the vicissitudes of external and internal Arab politics, suffering- from the Lebanese civil war of 1976-1989, the Iranian Revolution of 1979, the Iraqi Invasion of Kuwait in 1991, the American occupation of Iraq in 2003, and the Arab Spring since 2010. All of these examples remind one of the fragility of the Palestinian issue and deep dependence of the Palestinian cause on stability in the Arab World and for any attempt to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict leading to real results. The issue of present developments in the Arab region, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the peace process in the Middle East are highly correlated. This historical relationship between the political developments in the Arab region and the Palestinian cause has always been a detrimental factor for the conflict. It can be concluded from what has been mentioned above, that the core issue and root cause of the problems in the Middle East is concentrated and focused on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and the region will not settle down and enjoy stability until this issue is resolved.
