Abstract: This study is dedicated to identifying the elements of continuity and discontinuity of American foreign policy towards Palestine from Nixon to Clinton. The importance of this research is derived from the fact that it explores the American-Palestinian relations through a very long period of time through which many major international changes occurred as well as internal changes within the Palestinian and American fronts. Moreover, the long time period covered in this research gives a clear idea about to which extend these variables dominate American behavior towards Palestine. This study is divided into three chapters other than the introduction and conclusion. The first chapter is divided into three parts. The first part is dedicated to giving a general overview of American foreign policy from a theoretical point of view. The second part is detected to examining American foreign policy towards the Middle East. The third and last part gives a historic overview of American foreign policy towards Palestine prior to the Nixon era to pinpoint the historical background that established this relationship. The second chapter explores American foreign policy towards Palestine from the Nixon era to George Bush senior. The chapter is divided according to the presidential periods as a mean to identify the elements of continuity and discontinuity in the American approach towards Palestine for each president
