Despite splits, U.S. still arms Israel

July 8, 2009

TEL AVIV, Israel, July 8 (UPI) — Despite differences between the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama and Israel over Iran and the Middle East peace process

, and human-rights groups’ allegations of war crimes against the Palestinians, Washington continues to provide the Jewish state with billions of dollars’ worth of arms and equipment every year.

And there’s no sign that this will change any time soon.

Indeed, Obama has endorsed a military aid package worth up to $30 billion, without conditions, over the next 10 years that was set up by the administration of President George W. Bush in 2007.

That represents a 25 percent increase in the vast U.S. military and security assistance given to Israel during the Bush administration.

With annual military aid of some $2 billion, Israel is the largest recipient of U.S. largesse in the world.
