    The first was France. They supplied Israel with weapons in 1948. When French political wind shifted due to a change in government to an anti-Semitic president, the Germans (no longer Nazis) were happy to fill the roll. That was the era in which Germany began compensating Israel the crimes committed against Jewish people in WWII. But they also supplied technology and weapons. Then the US chose Israel to be its democratic, capitalistic pet projects. Since then Israel has received many benefits from the USA but always in exchange for something else. For example, to receive military aid, Israel had to stop production of its locally made jet fighter and its uzi automatic machine gun. Why? ANSWER: Competition. If Obama succeeds in his master plan to alienate Israel, another country will step in and Israel will no longer be limited in its military production. They already produce and sell one of the best tanks in the world.
