US Military Aid To Israel Increases Yet Again

March 1, 2008

President Bush’s FY2009 budget request to Congress includes $2.55 billion in military aid to Israel, a 9% increase over actual spending in FY2007. This increase in aid is the first installment of a ten-year agreement between Israel and the United States to increase military aid to Israel by 25%, totaling $30 billion over the next decade.

This is an indication of the strength of the US-Israeli bond. The aid should be cut until the occupation ends and then re-evaluated. Needless to say, dogs will fly and Bush will become a socialist and Cheney a pacificst before anything close to this happens.
