The love affair between Israel and America continues:
The US Congress on Friday approved the purchase of weapons and technological systems from Israel’s defense industries for $700 million. The advanced technological products will be acquired as part of the American security budget for the coming year to be used by US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The purchase of weapons from Israel is not part of Israel’s annual defense aid from the United States, which amounts to $2.4 billion and is expected to grow in 2009 to an annual average of $ 3 billion for the following 10 years.
This kind of relationship is promoted by both the Zionist lobby and associated groups who simply cannot imagine a Jewish state not biologically attached to the White House. But as many of us have been arguing for years, Israel is a rogue state that should either behave or be let adrift. These voices are growing.
