The US is set to arm Israel with more fighter jets.

The United States is set to arm Israel with more fighter jets in a three-billion-dollar agreement signed between Washington and Tel Aviv over the weekend.

The deal includes 14 F-35 stealth fighters made by the US company, Lockheed Martin, at a cost of about $110 million each, Israeli officials announced on Sunday.

Other technological and training elements were also included in the military package.

Israel is expected to receive the fighter jets by the end of next year.

The United States provides Israel with some $8.5 million in military aid per day, adding up to over $3 billion annually.

In November, the Department of Defense announced plans to arm Israel with 3,000 smart bombs as part of Washington’s military aid to Tel Aviv.

In December, American lawmakers passed a bill to deepen Washington’s bonds with Tel Aviv, making Israel a “major strategic partner” of the United States.

The US House of Representatives approved the US-Israel Strategic Partnership Act of 2014, which reflects “the sense of Congress that Israel is a major strategic partner of the United States,” and declares Washington’s “unwavering support” for Israel.

The US military aid to Israel has prompted several demonstrations across the country against such deals.

American protesters argue that the US taxpayer money is used for more Israeli aggression against Palestinians.

    So let me get this straight…..the U.S. provides Israel $3 billion annually in military aid, yet the prez isn’t going to attend Nutty’s speech in the halls of U.S. government? That seems a bit rude. And I get fined for not having health coverage that isn’t even available to me? Would somebody please tell me when this shit is going to end? Do I have to die to get away from it? And how do I need to buy insurance to assure that I don’t have to come back and relive this mess? Anybody?…

    Jean – the dollars for the military equipment that “comes” from Israel is actually money that originated in WDC and is now coming back looking like a purchase. The last number I heard was that 25 members of the congress hold dual citizenship, US/Israel, so you can guess how their loyalty bends. BTW it is illegal for a US firm to refuse to sell to Israel within certain parameters – anyone refusing will be ruined! Just more business as usual.
