White House To Sign Largest Military Deal In History With Israel

White house signs up for largest ever military deal with Israel

The U.S. is planning on giving Israel the largest military assistance package in its history, according to a White House spokesperson. 

An official from the Obama administration told Reuters, “We are prepared to sign an MOU (memorandum of understanding) with Israel that would constitute the largest single pledge of military assistance to any country in US history“.

Ynetnews.com reports:

The statement came hours after 83 US senators sent a letter to President Obama, urging him to reach a military assistance deal with Israel.

“In light of Israel’s dramatically rising defense challenges, we stand ready to support a substantially enhanced new long-term agreement to help provide Israel the resources it requires to defend itself and preserve its qualitative military edge,” said the letter.

The US and Israel have been engaged in intense negotiations in recent months to outline US military aid to Israel for the next 10 years.

In February, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he will wait for the next US president to take office, if the military package offered by the Obama administration does not sufficiently address Israeli security concerns, according to Israeli media.

However, Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Tuesday that Netanyahu would like to reach a military deal with Obama, fearing the uncertainty of the next US president’s positions.

    After ALL that NuttinYahoo has done to undermine Pres. Obama WHY would he have ANYTHING to do with that War Criminal??
    WE NEED TO END ALL AID TO ISRAEL!!

    After all, they use U.S. Taxpayers money to fund FREE Education, FREE, HealthCare, FREE Government funded Abortions, FREE DEATH for ANY Palestinian!!!
    WHY are we continuing to fund them? WHY do we continue to send them MORE weapons to keep the Middle East in chaos?
    Israeli aid is one of the reasons the rest of the Middle East HATES The United States!!!

    STOP AIDING THESE TERRORISTS!!!

      Not all Americans are warmongers. Hopefully we can elect the one peace-loving candidate and stop all the senseless wars and leave other countries alone to sort out their own issues. War should be as a last resort and never for profit.

    I note that the Obama administration official is not named, which allows a faint hope, but if this is genuine then I have never felt more ashamed of supporting President Obama.
