Abstract
Historically, the Middle East has not ranked high as a Canadian foreign policy priority. In fact, throughout the Cold War, involvement in the region was moderate at best – with the majority of military involvement largely focused on peacekeeping. In this regard, not only did Canada play an instrumental role in Suez in 1956 – the United Nation’s (UN) first peacekeeping mission, but was a willing and active contributor of military forces to all six such missions involving Israel and the Arab states.
