In Realist theory power, whether economic or military, is the “currency” of nation-states. Yet, when viewing developments in the MENA, this distinction fails to take into account the great influence of sub-national and non-state actors. Such groups in many cases challenge and in a few cases exceed the “power” of the nation-state in which they share territory. Among others, one such example is that of the Iranian backed political party Hezbollah, which operates within Lebanon.

The Trump Administration’s Middle East “Peace Plan,” has been in its “pre-launch” phase for nearly two years. The plan itself serves as a representation of Trump’s global foreign policy. This diplomatic strategy should come as no surprise to us as, after all, it is the first sentence of chapter two in the Art of the Deal. But does this method translate well for international relations?

In the Black Premium Dog Car Seat Covers for Back Seat of Cars Trucks SUV(Entire Rear Seat),Durable,Water Proof Non-Slip,Black, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump remarked that "ISIS happened a number of years ago in a vacuum."

In fact, ISIS and Al Qaeda's efforts to present themselves as quasi-governments capable of social welfare provision draws our attention to a phenomenon that probably deserves more attention than it receives: the use of social welfare provision by radical Islamist groups as a means of consolidating political control.
