Skip to comments.US to give Israel 'largest military aid package in history'
Posted on 04/26/2016 7:55:25 AM PDT by Olog-hai
The White House is reportedly planning to accept Israeli demands for increased military aid, following pressure by the US Senate to sign a new Memorandum of Understanding laying out US support to Israel for the next decade.
With the current Memorandum of Understanding set to expire in 2018, Israel has been pressuring the White House to enlarge the annual aid package from $3.1 billion to between $4-4.5 billion.
Israel has stated that it must increase its military spending to cope with growing threats from ISIS and the Iranian regime following last years nuclear deal.

Largest aide package, from Obama, means a super sized box of Wheaties kicked out of a C130, with a bad parachute.
“The White House is reportedly planning to accept Israeli demands for increased military aid...”
Not until Obama, has an American president so often given into the demands of other nations. It makes the United States look weak on the international stage and that in the end hurts Israel, showing the world that Obama is the most anti-Israel president in U.S. history.
Obama will make promises... and deliver nothing.
Thanks Olog-hai. This comes after seven years of blocking aid, including during times when Israel was under attack, and constant vicious criticism by Zero, Biden, and the rest of that criminal gang. IOW, this is just a fig leaf for the general election campaign -- Hillary: "this Democrat administration, of which I used to be a part, has given the largest aid package in history to our strongest ally, Israel." Only a ridiculous imbecile or hopeless partisan hack would fall for it.
I have no worry about aid to Israel, but what I wonder is why we give aid to the enemy who wants them wiped out. Saudis, Syrian jihadis, Palestinians, etc. At least Egypt signed a treaty and hasn’t fought Israel since the 70s.
But arming both sides of the conflict is just retarded, and expensive.
Obama arms one side with automatic firearms, explosives, and support equipment...He arms the other side with tree branch slingshots....
Guess which side is which??????
Great! Our congress has finally realized that obummer is going going gone soon and we/US need our Friends back again!
1,000,000 MREs and suntan lotion for when iran detonates the big one.
0bola’s promises ard the hope of fools..
It’s only fair - after all, obama did aid Iran in developing the nukes it will eventually rain down on Israel.
