    Israel has always been propped up by America. This includes not only massive direct payments into the Israeli treasury, but also direct investment by the Americasn government into Israeli businesses. America also steers other business deals, such as drone deals to Israel instead of filling them with American products. America has written blank checks every year to pay for all the fuel consumed by the IDF in order to protect Israel from fluxuating oil prices. This has been going on since 1980. America has also given Israel countless loan guarantees. America has given Israel much military hardware, such as Iron dome and weapons caches which are not counted against the billions of annual military aid. The list goes on and on. Israel simply has no economy which is capable of supporting their life style and never will have.
