Israel fears US arms shipments to new Arab friends

38

The Israeli defense department is wary of possible supplies of the latest American weapons to Arab countries. They suggest that the United States may begin to supply weapon not only in the UAE and Bahrain, but also in other Arab countries after their conclusion of peace treaties with Tel Aviv.


The journalist of the Israeli portal Ynet Yoav Zeitun writes about this.

To prevent this, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz went on a visit to the United States to meet with his American counterpart Mark Esper. In addition, the meeting of partners discussed the issue of military supplies for the IDF.

An Israeli journalist claims that Gantz and Esper may have discussed the option of the United States supplying Arab countries with combat aircraft and other equipment not of the latest modification. Thus, Israel's military advantage in the region will remain.

In addition, Zeytun suggested that at the meeting they could discuss the delivery of American weapons to Tel Aviv, which he had long wanted to receive from Washington. We are talking about the latest transport helicopters, V-22 tiltrotor aircraft, tanker aircraft, as well as the latest F-15 model and various electronic equipment.

    It is not for nothing that Israel asked for additional arms from the United States. There will be no peace in a pack where everyone wants to become a leader. The Americans in vain have climbed into the region with their peace initiatives. It would be better to first consult with the Jews, and apparently they were not asked for their opinions .. ...........

            Politics translated into Russian is boltology, and the real power is with those who have money, I hope you don’t need to say whose money works in the United States and in whose hands the Fed is in control, they are the owners, and the various Trump & Co. and all politicians are vassals of money bags, I hope you know their names yourself.

      Not at all. Contacts with Arab countries with moderate regimes have been going on for almost 10 years. The USA acted as mediators only at the final stage.

      For more than 50 years, Arab countries have abandoned their own benefits and interests while normalizing relations with Israel in favor of the political and very tangible material benefits of the "Palestinian brothers".

      Our political circles express the cautious hope that Saudi Arabia will soon join the UAE and Bahrain. Observers name several countries that could announce the signing of an agreement with Israel. These are Oman, Sudan and Morocco.

        However, Israel asked the Americans for an additional batch of weapons, and not, for example, the technology for the production of General Electric GE9X aircraft engines for Boeing. It seems that you yourself do not believe in a peaceful life with your neighbors?

          We do not have anything, no one and no reason to produce aircraft engines. We have few people, no materials, and we do not operate a Boeing 777.
          An arms batch never hurts. All the more so because their vollensity needs to be bought from the United States as part of the notorious aid.
          One can believe in a peaceful life, or not believe, but the peace treaty with Egypt has not been violated for 41 years, and with Jordan 26. hi

    What is the United States' goal in arming Israel over the past 40 years?
    In this regard, the official US doctrine uses the term "Qualitative military edge" (QME), which refers to Israel's minimum sustainable military superiority over neighboring Arab countries in the Middle East. In practice, this means that Israel annually receives about $ 3 billion of American military aid, Egypt - $ 1,3 billion, Jordan - $ 0,3 billion. This also takes into account the volume of arms and military supplies. technology from the United States to the Gulf countries.

    Maintaining such a "dynamic balance" makes it possible not to upset the regional balance of power, as well as to "tie" the countries of the region to the United States. In the event that one of the countries (Israel or Arab countries) violates the truce with its neighbors and loses favor with the United States, while others maintain good relations with the United States, then in the next financial year the "obedient" country will receive a new tranche of military aid and modernize its weapons, and the "rebellious" country remains with obsolete weapons. According to a number of experts, this financial structure is the foundation of peace in the Middle East. In addition, economic aid helped moderate regimes resist the rise of radicalism in their countries. In other words, America preferred to allocate funds to these countries instead of keeping its troops there.

    As you know, the normalization of relations with Israel was supported by several more Middle Eastern countries. It is not surprising that in this regard, Israel wants to be sure that the "dynamic equilibrium" that has fully justified itself over the course of four decades will not be violated. hi

    And why be afraid if you have concluded peace treaties. Well, live peacefully.
    Israel needs to "be wary of possible deliveries of the latest weapons" to Iran after the Americans failed to extend the embargo. After all, even France, Britain and the FRG did not support the United States.

            At your expense, in terms of a common enemy, they may insure themselves, but they are unlikely to fight Iran for the interests of Israel.

      Rightly afraid.

      You need to understand the main reason for fear. Let's remember the latest statements by Trump.
      "The US military will no longer rebuild other countries and" resolve other people's conflicts. "
      Washington is returning to the fundamental principle that the soldier's job is to defend and resolutely defend the United States against external enemies. "We are not the cops of this world."
      In order to provide Israel with a certain security in the future without the participation of the United States, Trump is making efforts to conclude peace treaties with the Arabs. Well, thank God.
      The main problem for Israel remains Iran, on which sanctions have now been lifted.
      The visit of Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz to the United States suggests that the Jews have no faith in the signed treaties.

    Purchases, purchases-shmakupki ... They went to "contracts" and go-38 billion. dollars up to 28, inclusive, will be mastered. Something to speed up (refuellers) or increase the share of Israeli localization of production is another matter. Not everyone sees (on special Hebrew-speaking forums "see" ...) the main Israeli "goodies in compensation": full access to the F-Z5 software (now partial) licensed service center for all Middle Eastern F-35s in Israel. Today (from Hebrew), the IDF is also trying to take into account the information that was published about the secret aircraft of the sixth generation of the American army, which is very interesting for the IDF. Sources familiar with the process of buying the aircraft have hinted that the sale of the aircraft in the UAE does not necessarily guarantee that it will include the advanced applications that Adir (the F-35 aircraft that already exists in the IDF) has.
    ...
