Record U.S. Military Aid Deal For Israel To Be Signed Today

Israel's Channel 2 has today reported that Israeli authorities have accepted the most recent US military help bundle, which will see them getting approximately $38 billion over the next decade. Israeli authorities are said to be excited to finalize the deal, and it is expected to be announced in the next couple of days.

This comes simply a day after a report in the Washington Post asserting that the offer was being held up by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-- SC), who was preparing to advance his own, somewhat larger military help expense as a result of the Senate and implicated Obama of trying to take control of appropriations duties that are rightfully Congress'.

Graham states Benjamin Netanyahu cautioned him he was holding up the deal, and that he informed Netanyahu to inform the Obama Administration "to go F themselves." The White Home was said to be hesitant to sign the deal with Graham so annoyed by it.

Eventually, this was solved by Israel guaranteeing not to look for extra aid from Congress after signing the Obama deal, except for perhaps during wartime, a concession that most likely kills the Graham alternative offer, and is seen as Israel siding with the president against Congress.

Obama has actually been offering record offers to Israel for over a year, with Israel long requiring a little bit more and a little bit more. Ultimately, however, there was concern within Israel that extending negotiations beyond Obama's last term in workplace ran the risk of politicizing Israeli military aid within the US.
