Military Review

Israel asked the United States to increase military aid

13
In the framework of the new Israeli-American agreement on military assistance for 2018-2027, the preparation of which began by agreement between US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli authorities are seeking a sharp increase in military assistance, media reported.


Israel is not only concerned about its own security problem due to the ongoing conflict with the Palestinians and the unstable situation in the entire Middle East, ITAR-TASS reports.

The Israeli government’s serious concern is the significant increase in purchases of weapons and military equipment by neighboring countries, including the Arab States of the Gulf region.

This could lead to “the emergence of armies that are comparable in their capabilities with our own armed forces, and raises the question of maintaining our high-quality military advantage,” said the Israeli ambassador to Washington, Michael Oren.

According to him, Israel does not object to the supply of American weapons to other countries in the region, aware, in particular, that if the United States reduces its presence in this market, it will be occupied by other players.

At the same time, the diplomat hopes that in preparing the new agreement, Washington will take into account the need to preserve Israel’s military superiority over Arab countries, as well as the threats to the Jewish state.

Recall that the current 10-year agreement to provide US military assistance to Israel totaling $ 30 billion will expire in 2017 year.

    A deny of Tel Aviv will certainly be given. Here and do not go to a fortuneteller. In the requested volume, or slightly trimmed, this is not so fundamental. The fact is that the request will not be refused ...

      Well, yes, but only the Jews need to be reminded that the flag should be changed, some kind of conspiracy for fools, and the truth must be written, President Obama met with the Governor of the State of Israel Netanyahu, in my opinion it will be more accurate.

      After .... years, either I will die, or the emir will die, or the donkey will die. In Siatia we are talking about the following agreement. The present four more years will be valid.
      Another state is striking - the microbe wants to have an army superior to any army in the region. It seems to me that the steam engine has already left. The Arab spring, Syria and all the last troubles organized to democratize wild Arabs and Asians have led to the fact that Israel has become not so much a scarecrow, how much a splinter or awl in one place. It now bothers everyone, including the United States.
      In perspective, the Jews need to raise a new Moses ...

    "This could lead to" the emergence of armies comparable in their capabilities to our own armed forces, and raises the question of maintaining our quality military advantage, "- said Israeli Ambassador to Washington Michael Oren. - scared? It is correct and "no matter" that all the countries around are practically torn apart by civil conflicts, and some countries are trampled into the "stone age" - so why does Israel need an even stronger army, maybe they want to occupy the entire region?

    Something is not clear. Only, it seems, announced that

    Yes, it seems that an open military invasion of Syria cannot be avoided, since for the US, losing in Syria is the beginning of the end. But, apparently, as in the case of Libya, the Americans will act with the wrong hands, most likely Israeli. Apparently, Israel will have to, regardless of the losses from the action of Syrian air defense,
    tear ass for US interests.

      Not everything is as simple as it seems to you, Israel does not intend to interfere in the Syrian conflict. In this regard, Governor Netanyahu clearly told Borka Obama.
      As for the Syrian air defense, this is not even worth talking about.
      As far as Amer’s help is concerned, there’s also a double-edged sword, They won’t give US, Russia will give. Naturally for those preferences that the United States had. And the United States understands this perfectly so there can be no two opinions.

    We are all so independent, we don’t ask for help anymore, but we demand that the Jews completely lost their hands.
    Just stop killing Arabs in heaps, then you don’t have to ask for money, although you have done so much that Arabs are unlikely to forget it.

      During the civil war in Syria, 2.5 years, about 100000 civilians died, and not during the military operations but the purposeful genocide of some Muslims against others. Now about the dead Palestinians since the creation of the state (1948 until 2013), suffered for various reasons ( Military operation, natural disasters, etc.) 29000 people. Something like that. You see the difference or you have pink glasses. On the roads per year from road accidents it dies in more than 65 years of the state of Israel coexistence hi

    Something started at the Izra bench press ... It seems that they realized that Syria would be beaten off from the bandits and that it was urgent to pump up muscles. And then suddenly Assad would later recall the shelling.

      No boil. This news is not entirely fresh. We are talking about already signed agreements with the United States on the provision of assistance (for those who are not aware, Egypt receives exactly the same amount according to the Camp David Accords) and on the provision of this assistance early. Moreover, for specific projects such as the Iron Dome, missile defense radars and, if I’m not mistaken, convertiplanes.

      If this help is not (and Egypt breaks off), then nothing terrible will happen. Religious parasites will be given less, but they will be found on armies. In the army itself, the fat was divorced too. The lieutenant colonel retires at the age of 40 and, in addition to a lump sum of $ 270 thousand, receives a pension of $ 7000 every month ...

      I will never forget how Bibi declared in his first cadence that he intended to refuse American assistance. He was called to the Washington Regional Committee and clearly explained why he should not do this. Having returned all beaten, he no longer recalls such nonsense.

        Comrade Professor, tell us why Israel is so firmly entrenched in the occupied and disputed territories, because it is obvious that sooner or later the Arabs will be able to claim these lands back and you will get a new conflict and a bunch of refugees in their territory ....

    These days, 20 years of the Oslo agreements are celebrated, i.e. agreements in Oslo. Since then Israel has been trying to return these territories, but nobody is in a hurry to take them. Left Gaza, water and electricity are supplied to them for free, in return they receive rockets. Abas is still threatening to proclaim a state, but he cannot find the right words. It's more convenient for him. It seems that he is in power, but his people are fed by others. Again, Israel gives water and electricity, money is neighbors and "good people". For 20 years the Palestinians have not even printed their money. Shekels are better. They offer to come to an agreement, but they put forward preconditions that are clearly impossible to fulfill. And so on. Let me tell you a secret, Palestinian Arabs in neighboring countries are hated even more than Israelis (Israeli Arabs are generally considered traitors). They will get their country, they will not live for more than a year, or they will flee from gold or they will again be captured by neighboring Arab countries. Such an alignment.

    I would also write "Moscow" from a big bull. You should be more attentive.

      Now it’s clear why Palestine pulls itself with the announcement of the state. Although even if they announce why they don’t have an industry, there’s not enough income from tourism for everyone, it’s probably easier to live in an enclave and they give all the money for no reason

        Who is to blame for them that they did not create industry? Palestinians received more per capita aid than anyone ever received in history. The result is zero.

    No, thank you, it’s one thing to provide humanitarian medical assistance, it’s another thing to get into an armed conflict. Moreover, there are no peace treaties with Syria, Syria is in a state of permanent war. (UN troops) And the third is Syria’s personal business, the war with Opozitsiya (bearded, Wahhabis, and call it what you like anyway. This is its internal conflict. Well, and the last thing you imagine, Hezbollah is clearly not a military formation friendly to Israel, Iranian guardians of the revolution and others. Hostile forms opposed to Israel sirovany.

    We want it, only a little depends on our desire, Assad was made a lot of peace proposals at one time, but Assad simply couldn’t accept them under the influence of circumstances. Although, in my opinion, he perfectly understands the benefits that joint cooperation in the agricultural sector could bring him industrial and other fields.
