Despite 200 Israeli Nukes Aimed At Iran, US To Fund Israel Defense To Tune Of $700M

The newest draft of next year’s National Defense Authorization Act will give Israel hundreds of millions of dollars to develop missile defense systems against the non-existent nuclear threat of Iran while Israel points over 200 nukes at the Islamic Republic. Israel currently stands as the largest recipient of U.S. military and economic aid, receiving nearly $10 million daily.

WASHINGTON, D.C.– In what can only be described as yet another massive giveaway of military aid, the Senate Armed Services Committee’s latest draft of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) would give $705 million to Israeli missile defense programs. The sizable sum is a remarkable $588 million increase from the request made by President Donald Trump and a $105 million increase from last year’s NDAA.

The committee’s draft of the NDAA, which would fund the Pentagon over the next fiscal year, would grant $268.5 million for the research, development, testing and evaluation of “multi-tiered missile defense systems” along with $290 million more for their purchase.

According to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the systems receiving funding include the Iron Dome, David’s Sling, Arrow-2 and Arrow-3 systems. While most are developed by Israeli weapon manufacturer Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, some – namely David’s Sling – are made in cooperation with U.S. arms giant Raytheon. Both companies are sure to greatly benefit from the NDAA’s patronage if the bill is passed in its current draft form.
