US to up its subsidy of Israel military

Antiwar -According to reports in the Israeli press, planned talks between Israel and the US on a one-time, multi-billion dollar military aid package in “compensation” for US approval of the Iran nuclear deal remain on hold, with focus on a planned increase in annual military aid to Israel.

The US currently sends Israel $3.1 billion annually in military aid, and the increase is expected to bump this up by roughly another billion dollars. Such plans tend toward 20-year timeframes, meaning the spending will add up to $20 billion more.

Really good value for the US. Israel is our first line of defense against all the Saudi terror organizations. The Palestinians want a one state solution, and they and their Saudi masters will settle for nothing less.
