    The common focus is on US military aid to Israel, and all the complaints follow in due course. Yet where are the complaints about US military aid going to Egypt, Jordan, the Palestinians, or Lebanon which, together, exceed what Israel gets? And what of the billions given to Pakistan? Just consider how much the US would spend if it had to do itself what Israel does on its behalf. Who would provide the weapons stores, the patrols of the Red Sea and Eastern Med, the regional intelligence, the real world combat expertise that Israel provides? Israel now provides military hardware - drones, targeting pods, armor, and a lot more - that today are saving US lives in the field. And what's the value of the hundreds of improvements Israel passes back to the US manufacturers? Now tell me what the Arab countries give back to the US.
