These remarks are followed by an outline of current strategic, economic, and political factors influencing a US policy decision on the expulsion question. An examination of the utility of the United Nations in a contemporary world follows in order to provide a background for the authors views on the probability of a future expulsion attempt being made against Israel, and what policy alternatives the US has. Four possible US courses of action are outlined with arguments both for and against their adoption. A preferred policy position is recommended.
