Is There Excessive Military Aid to Israel?

Israel receives military credits from the United States. This is money that has to be spent in the US on American weaponry, which benefits the American economy. Israel remains an important partner in global counter-terrorism efforts. 


For decades, Israel has worked to prevent hostile regimes from obtaining nuclear weapons and further destabilization of the region and beyond. Working strategically, Israel was instrumental in preventing nuclear proliferation in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, Bashar Al-Assad’s Syria, and Iran, a global terror sponsor.
