Compare and contrast the positions and politics of the US, the EU, Russia and China of the Arab Israeli conflict, referring to these issues (and perhaps others):
a. The main policy/positon over time with any noticeable changes
b. The main components & interests that have been underpinning that policy/position
c. The shared interests between these countries and Israel on the one hand and the Arab countries and the Palestinians on the other hand
d. The consistency of the policy/position with the UN resolutions issued on the conflict, particularly Resolution 242 and 338.
