The Arabs have the president of the United States Barack Obama to thank personally for the increased aid they recently received. Even though America’s greatest Ally, “Not so Much”. That’s because a new report is indicating that South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham recently blasted President Obama this week, condemning his refusal to increase American aid to Israel, as well as his efforts to bar Israel from spending the aid money within the Jewish state.
Excerpt From Arutz Sheva 7:
Speaking to Haaretz, Graham revealed that Israel had previously requested an increased aid package from the White House, with $4 billion a year for regular military funding, plus $600 million towards Israel’s missile defense network. But, Graham said, the administration rejected the request, despite similar increases to Arab states, such as Jordan. “I made a decision, given the deterioration in the region, that Israel needs more funding,” said Graham. “In the last three years, we increased funding to Jordan by $275 million outside of the MoU, because Jordan was under siege.”
