This paper examined the Middle East security challenges and the Syrian crisis. The central argument is that the Middle East is faced with security challenges which has affected Syria thereby making people to suffer and migrate out of Syria to other Middle East countries. The theory that was adopted for this study was the power theory by Han Morgenthau. The study adopted the ex- post facto research design. Consequently, data for the study were sourced through secondary sources like, journal articles, textbooks, newspapers and internet. Data so sourced were analysed qualitatively, even though tables were presented where necessary. Facts drawn from these sources were carefully examined in order to establish a logical trend from which conclusions were drawn. The study found that the participation of ethnicity and religion has made the subjects to favour one side and this had additionally made it hard to end the conflict in Syria and the Middle East and the weapons that are utilized by ISIS had prompted security challenges in the Middle East. The study recommended among others that instead of requesting that all nations go up against similar protection roles regarding displaced people because of the crisis in the Middle East, there ought to be outfit of the capacity and readiness of various nations to help in distinctive ways; the global community should approach, and support, a prompt truce by all sides and an extensive global arms ban and make and permit discourse sessions between the diverse ethno-religious and non-religious groups.
