Israel needs F35's ? Why? to be more effective at shooting fish in the 'Gaza barrel'? To conduct raids on Iran's NPT signatory backed nuclear facilities in order to maintain the complete dominance and threat of it's illegal non-NPT backed nuclear arsenal? And why keep up the complaints about wanting Israeli technology in the aircraft....just let Israel keep on spying in the US to support it's parallel development and tweaking of avionics technology. Yeah...sure. Israel needs these planes like Palestine needs new settlements.
