The linkage between political development and foreign policy is analyzed. Elements of Egyptian, Israeli, and Syrian foreign policies are examined in search of "pragmatism", the defining trait of a modern state's foreign relations. Contrary to conventional wisdom, less politically-developed Arab states have displayed growing pragmatism since 1967, while the modern Israeli polity has produced governments with less pragmatic foreign policies in recent years. Middle East foreign policies have evolved largely independent of political development, although domestic political conditions do influence these nations' foreign policies. More transitory, non-structural phenomenon have a pervasive effect on the level of pragmatism in these nations' foreign policies.
