    The profits from arm sales go to the manufactures not the government that has to provide the IDF with money to buy weapons. Military aid has to be spent on products bought in America so its good for the American arms industry and creates job. The new Namer APC although based on the hull of the Merkava 4 so it could be paid for with aid a brand new factory was set up in the US so it could be paid for with aid so thats brand new jobs. Israel's SAAR 5 missile boats, they were designed in Israel but built by IIngals ship builders so could be paid for with military aid so another contract for an American company. The arms industry is expense and the US government is not allowed to provide direct subsidy to arms manufacturers and they get round that with indirect subsidy through military aid and there are about 30 countries currently recipients of military aid. The good news in this article though is Israel is sixth largest arms supplier and the number on supplier of drones.

    from the article: Israel ranks as the world's sixth largest arms exporter in 2012
