US approves record $38bn Israel military aid deal

14 September 2016

The US has agreed a military aid package for Israel worth $38bn (28bn) over the next 10 years, officials say, the largest such deal in US history.

The previous pact, set to expire in 2018, saw Israel get $3.1bn annually.

The new agreement follows 10 months of behind-the-scenes talks and will be signed on Wednesday.

Pro-Palestinian groups criticized the deal, saying it rewards Israel despite the ongoing construction of Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.

A pro-Israel lobby group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, said the deal would send a "strong message of deterrence" to Israel's enemies.

Last month, the White House warned that the construction of settlements posed a "serious and growing threat to the viability of a two-state solution" to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The settlements are considered illegal under international law, though Israel disputes this.

A brief statement issued by the US state department on Tuesday said the new memorandum of understanding with Israel on security assistance, running from 2019 until 2028, constituted "the single largest pledge of bilateral military assistance in US history".

Officials said the new package would for the first time incorporate money - $500m a year - for Israeli missile defense programmes. They were previously funded on an annual basis by Congress.

Israel had agreed not to lobby Congress for additional funds during the lifetime of the deal unless a new war broke out, the officials said.

The pact also reportedly includes an undertaking that Israel will eventually only use the money to buy products from the US defense industry, rather than its own.

Israel will no longer be able to spend some of the funds on fuel for its military too.

US President Barack Obama had been keen to strike a deal before leaving office to counter criticism that his administration had been insufficiently supportive of a key ally's security.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had signaled that he might wait for Mr Obama's successor in the hope of securing a better deal worth up to $4.5bn a year.

Relations have been strained between the two leaders for years, and worsened in March 2015 when Mr Netanyahu appeared before Congress to lobby against the Iran nuclear deal advocated by Mr Obama.

Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate for US president, applauded the deal saying it will "help solidify and chart a course for the US-Israeli defense relationship into the 21st century".

Mr Obama and Mr Netanyahu are expected to address the UN General Assembly in New York next week, but no plans for a formal meeting have been announced.

স্পষ্ট বোঝা যাচ্ছে, আম্রিকা ইজরায়েলকে শামের ফ্রন্টের জন্য প্রস্তুত করছে। তারা খুব ভালভাবেই আঁচ করতে পেরেছে, ২০২০ সালের মধ্যেই শামের ফ্রন্ট বিস্তৃত হয়ে সিরিয়া থেকে লেবানন, জর্দান এবং ফিলিস্তিন অভিমুখী হবে বা হবার সম্ভাবনা আছে।

কিন্তু আমি যদি ভুল না করি, ইমরান নযর হোসেন সাহেব তার বক্তব্যে বলতেন বরং আমেরিকাই উল্টা ইস্রাইলের সাহায্য নিয়ে বেঁচে আছে। আম্রিকার অর্থনীতি ভেঙ্গে পরসে এটা তো কম বেশী ওপের সিক্রেট, তার উপর ইসরাইলকে এইড দিবে এই খবর আমার কাছে রহস্যজনক।
