The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
My friend, Ehud, you have a few facts confused in your posting. The money that is gifted to israel every year is from the US Government and therfore, American taxpayers--not private companies, as you wrote. Also, the $ 2.7 billion just for military purchases is the single largest gift to any country each and every year--not a "fraction" as you wrote. Also, the US gift of $2.7 bil represents over 10% of the Israeli miltary budget. You are right about many other things that the US does for Israel.
