The New Deal with Israel

The United States and Israel recently agreed on a foreign aid package providing $3.8 billion in military aid for each of the next ten years. This marks a sharp increase in the level of aid, but that’s still less than one-tenth-of-one percent – less than one-one-thousandth – of the money Uncle Sam spends each year. And this assistance goes only to our military cooperation with the Israel Defense Forces – none of it can be used for social or economic programs.

Moreover, 100% of the weapons and equipment bought with US aid must be spent with US companies, providing a major boost to American business; in the past, only 74% of the aid had to be spent in the US.

The long-term commitment to a nation that co-develops some of the world’s most advanced weapons systems with America, and battles at the front lines against terrorism in the Middle East, involves a prudent bargain for US policy makers.
