The Folly and Blowback of Arming Israel

The Folly of Arming Israel | Alternet

Why it doesn’t make sense to arm Israel and why no one ever discusses the subject.  If massive military aid is supposed to give Washington leverage over
Israel (as it normally does in client-state relationships), it is
difficult to detect. In case you hadn’t noticed, rare is the American
diplomatic visit to Israel that is not greeted with an in-your-face announcement of intensified colonization of Palestinian territory, euphemistically called “settlement expansion.”
