“Other than the increase in aid, we received an explicit and detailed commitment to guarantee Israel’s qualitative advantage over other Arab states…We understand the United States’ desire to help moderate states, which stand at a united front with the United States and Israel in the struggle against Iran.” Olmert
This is how the world works:
Israel PM announces $30 billion US defense aid
US makes ‘anti-Iran’ arms deals with Gulf states
America plans $20bn arms deals for allies in the Gulf
US ‘plans huge Saudi arms deal’
US: Saudi Arabia destabilizing Iraq
Israel signs off on U.S. arms sale to Saudis
Israel Says No Objections to US Gulf Arms Deal
Bush faces opposition to Gulf arms deal
U.S. Congressmen say will try to block proposed Saudi arms deal
US accused of fueling arms race with $20bn Arab weapons sale
Reports: Iran to buy jets from Russia
And you give out
For ain’t it so weird
How it makes you a weapon
Never turn your back on it
Never turn your back on it again
Careful, be careful

I seem to remember that it was Israel which saved Jordan from being invaded by Syrian armoured brigades on Sept 20 1970,when the Syrian columns retreated back to Syrian border after Israeli warplanes did some areial dives on them warning the Syrians not to interfer at their peril in the civil war going on at that time in Jordan
A: What does that have to do with anything, whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s your point!!!
Do You really think that we should support the US funding because these funds are protecting Jordan by strengthening Israeli army!!!!!!!!!!!!
Because “I seem to Remember” that the Israelis used their weapons and military many times since 1970, and it was not only some maneuvers and dives!!
This is all so misguided. We are cursed always to fight the last war. There was an interesting article about this in the LA Times recently.
