Does Israel benefit from US foreign aid?

Here's a thought-provoking question for Israelis: Does Israel benefit from US foreign aid?

As the national liberation movement of the Jewish people, Zionism has historically held as its basic aspiration the achievement of political independence for the Jewish people in the Jewish homeland. Because a nation cannot be both dependent and independent at the same time, accepting money from the United States has essentially placed Israel in a situation of dependency that has critically eroded the Jewish state's sovereignty.

As advocates of organic democracy and the notion that a government's policies should reflect the will of the people it serves, the Free Zion movement works to achieve an Israeli leadership that behaves according to the national interest of the Jewish people and not according to the regional agendas of foreign actors.

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Ze'ev via Twitter).

If God forbid Obama is reelected, we may yet get to test this theory....

Almost the only "US foreign aid" that Israel gets now is military, to balance what is given to Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi, to give you an edge in defense and keep Iran/Pakistan/Russia/China from overrunning the whole region? These people talking in the video think 7 mil Israelis can come up with a tax base to replace the $2+ bil per year? So, even if you spend $1.6 bil (did he say 75 or 80 percent) on U.S. stuff, you can spend the other $4-500 MILLION on your stuff or hacking/upgrading the US stuff w/ your superior instrumentation or whatever.

So, if you don't want the US messing with you, then drill baby drill in the US is the key, as opposed to aligning with the EPA drilling shutdown/ solar, geothermal takeover. Because then we won't have any heroin type need from that area (although the Euros will squeal like stuck pigs if we make fortress America and leave them to their own devices again). Then Israel, the UK, anybody, would be on your own. Unless you want a newfangled type of NATO. But, remember, if we aren't to be allies with no daylight between us, then Israel also would be assessed into categories that may affect your commercial access to the American markets, which currently is almost unlimited, like the U.K.

Watched the video: Why not just reject the military money and see how it goes? And reject the green $billions to collapse the U.S. energy supply... Just reject it all and see how it goes... hmmm...

Maybe those guys in this video could set up a barter system where the top Israeli technologies are traded to the U.S. for the military $$. That way, it would be value for value. Unless they are saying that U.S. military equipment is actually just junk and they don't even want it at all. BTW, I think there are Israelis, Brits, Aussies, etc. etc. co-developing a lot of the platforms, etc.

About 75% of the said aid in spent in the US with American companies employing US citizens in the US. In exchange the US military buys outright about two billion dollars a year in equipment from Israel. Material such as UAV's, antitank missiles, avionics, fire control computers, fiber optic gear and specialty metals.
