    With all of the knowledgeable people posting on this site that favor strong US ties with Israel, this should be an easy task.

    Please post TEN recipients of US Foreign Aid, starting with the Highest recipient to the least. If you can post more, great. If you can provide a link to a site that shows a graph, even better.

    Thank you.

    Too damned much.

    Cut them loose, let them fight an die for their own damned dirt on their own dime, and let the chips fall where they may.

    You have done zilch for the US, you bum.

    Since 1967, Israel has given to the Pentagon Soviet military equipment captured in conflicts with Soviet-supported Arab countries, providing important data. Israel gave the US a full squadron of MiG-21s which was called the “Top Gun” squadron and used by the U.S. Air Force and Navy for training purposes.

    In 1970, Israel forced the withdrawal of the Syrian army from US-ally Jordan while the U.S. was involved militarily in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, helping to prevent the collapse of a pro-American government and the installation of a pro-Soviet regime.

    In the 1973 War, Israel defeated Soviet-trained and equipped Egyptian and Syrian armies. Israel shared captured Soviet equipment with the US. Israel emerged the one reliable ally where U.S. troops could land, where U.S. equipment can be pre-positioned and where the U.S. has friendly port facilities, saving the US billions of dollars.

    In 1982, Israel destroyed Soviet anti-aircraft systems in Lebanon that were considered impenetrable by American weapons. Israel shared with the US insights from the conflict, estimated to be worth billions of dollars.

    Senator Daniel Inouye has stated that Israeli data on the Soviet military has saved the U.S. billions of dollars and that the contribution made by Israeli intelligence to America exceeds information provided by all NATO countries combined.

    In 1981, Israel bombed the Iraqi nuclear reactor at Osirak, stalling Saddam Hussein’s nuclear capabilities and allowing the U.S. to engage in conventional warfare with Iraq.

    Israel has provided critical analysis of the F16 to General Dynamics that resulted in 600 improvements, including structural enhancements, software changes, increased capability landing gear, radio improvements and avionic modifications.

    In the Gulf War, Israel provided the US with key intelligence, air cover for military cargo and had IDF stationed in the Iraqi desert to rescue downed American pilots.

    The IDF was the sole military force in the region that could successfully challenge the Iraqi army. That fact, which Saddam Hussein understood, was a deterrent to further Iraqi aggression.

    The US military benefited from the use of Israeli-made Have Nap air-launched missiles on its B-52 bombers. The Navy used Israeli Pioneer pilotless drones for reconnaissance in the Gulf.

    Israel provided mine plows that were used to clear paths for Allied forces through Iraqi minefields.

    Mobile bridges flown directly from Israel to Saudi Arabia were used by the U.S. Marine Corps

    Israel Aircraft Industries developed conformal fuel tanks that enhanced the range of F15 aircraft used in the Gulf War.

    An Israeli-produced targeting system was used to increase the Cobra helicopter's night-fighting capabilities.

    Israel manufactured the canister for the highly successful Tomahawk missile.

    Night-vision goggles used by U.S. forces were supplied by Israel.

    A low-altitude warning system produced and developed in Israel was utilized on Blackhawk helicopters.

    Other Israeli equipment provided to U.S. forces included flack vests, gas masks and sandbags.

    Israel offered the United States the use of military and hospital facilities. U.S. ships utilized Haifa port shipyard maintenance and support on their way to the Gulf.

    General George Keegan, former head of U.S. Air Force Intelligence, has stated that “Israel is worth five CIA’s.” He said that between 1974 and
    1990, Israel received $18.3 billion in U.S. military grants, but, that in the same timeframe Israel provided the U.S. with $50-$80 billion in intelligence, research and development savings and Soviet weapons systems given to the U.S.

    Israel shares with the US important experience in homeland defense and warfare against suicide bombers and car bombs.

    In preparation for the Iraq War, American soldiers trained in IDF facilities and Israeli drones flew above the Sunni Triangle and in Afghanistan providing U.S. Marines with critical intelligence.

    In Iraq, Israeli advisers have trained US special forces in aggressive counter-insurgency operations, including the use of assassination squads against guerrilla leaders.

    The IDF sent urban warfare specialists to Fort Bragg in North Carolina, the home of US special forces, and Israeli military consultants have also visited Iraq.

    The US Army also travelled to Israel to glean lessons learned from their counterterrorist operations in urban areas. The IDF regularly shared its experience in the West Bank and Gaza with the US armed forces. The Pentagon regularly asked the IDF to debrief on operations similar to those engaged in by US military forces.

    An American liaison team had been responsible for coordinating efforts and intelligence between the Pentagon, the IDF, and American forces. Major General Charles Simpson, the chief liaison officer for the U.S. Army, met repeatedly with IDF Chief of Staff Moshe Ya'alon on this joint project.

    Joint air force exercises, such as the Juniper Cobra, had taken place between Israeli and the American Patriot artillery in the Negev and radar units from the U.S. Sixth Fleet. Noble Dina, an anti-submarine warfare exercise, were executed with the combined efforts of the Israel Navy and the Sixth Fleet.

    American soldiers were in Israel prior to the Iraq war to work with anti-missile defenses, both the U.S.-made Patriot and the Arrow, developed by both Israel and the U.S.

    The U.S. sailed an aircraft carrier, the Harry Truman, into the Mediterranean Sea. The aircraft allowed U.S. planes to reach Iraqi targets by flying over Israeli and Jordanian territory. Israel has permitted the use of its air zones.

    Israel has been sharing with the US its experience in combating Palestinian terrorism, which has been helpful in the US's war in Afghanistan. The US military benefits from Israel’s tactics against suicide bombers, car bombs and improvised explosive devices.

    Most of the US military aid to Israel must be spent in the United States, which benefits US military contractors.

    In contrast to US commitments to Korea, Japan, Germany and numerous other countries in which the US has over 100 military bases, the US has no military bases in Israel.

    Former Secretary of State and NATO forces Commander Alexander Haig has said that he is pro-Israeli because Israel is "the largest American aircraft carrier in the world that cannot be sunk, does not carry even one American soldier, and is located in a critical region for American national security"

    In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, Israel provided assistance to the relief efforts. An Israeli airlift arrived in Little Rock, Arkansas with an eighty-ton shipment of humanitarian aid, including baby food, diapers, water, ready-to-eat meals, clothes, tents, blankets, mattresses, stretchers, first aid kits, wheelchairs and other medical supplies.

    In addition to government aid, Israeli non-profit organizations assisted in the relief efforts. Magen David Adom (Israel's national emergency medical, disaster, ambulance and blood bank service) began the "United Brotherhood Operation," which sent a plane-load of supplies and financial assistance. IsraAid, the coordinating body of Israeli non-profits organizations involved in relief work, sent a delegation of medical personnel, psychologists and experienced search-and-rescue divers.

    Five universities in Israel welcomed displaced American students from the affected areas and invited both undergraduate and graduate students to continue their studies in Israel.

    When terrorists bombed the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in August 1998, Israel immediately dispatched search and rescue teams to assist in saving the victims trapped under the rubble. The IDF's Home Front Command Rescue Unit was the first delegation to arrive from abroad, and was accompanied by military and civilian doctors, rescue dogs and high-tech rescue equipment. The Israeli team led the rescue operation in Nairobi, Kenya and was able to pull three survivors from the building, perform life-saving operations and provide medical care to the victims of the bombing.

    Get a decent job, loser, so you wouldn't worry about foreign aid to Israel. I'm tired of supporting bums like you.

    Oh really dipshit? Both my brother and I served our Country in The Gulf War.

    Our GrandFather Liberated The Jews of Germany, among other things, in World War 2. He had German ancestry. How dare you, you ungrateful maggot.

    We didn't need any Soviet crap. We had are own built up from German Technology. You like that you slug?

    LOL!!!! You made a back door deal with the Soviets just like you continued to do while pretending to be our 1# ally.

    We could take whatever land we wished for your so-called "Facilities". We don't need the land that you purchased without fighting for it with honor. You fucking cowards.

    More lies. Anything you have, you were given or stole from us. Don't sit and pretend that you didn't use French Jets or anyother Western Nations Technology to get what you want.

    What a load of crap! Israel has been working with The Soviets during and after the fall of it's Union. Fucking liars!

    Allowing? LOL!!!! Hey, that was Israel's right to defend itself, but don't act as if they did America a favor by defending themselves? Are we expected to solve all your problems? Do You understand that question you spin artist bottomfeeder?

    Give me a link because the bullshit is head deep right about now...

    Of course, They should have you moron. Do you want a thank you? It was more for you than anyone else. You want a medal? Maybe like one you gave the pilots that murdered our boys on The USS Liberty?

    "Iraqi aggression"? LOL!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, We needed you to thwart that danger.

    Which the original blue print of the software came from The United States of America.

    All I can do is laugh at that one. What would we have done without them?

    Again, For the benefit of Israel, Not America. It's we who did the favor, not Israel you stupid moron. Would you like a list of what we have done for you? Just let me know when...

    Again, Anything you have was handed over to you from the West.

    See above.

    Wow! I would have rather seen an American company make it.

    Are those like the ones you supplied the Iraqi insurgents with that were found?

    And they couldn't make them without the technology that we gave them to begin with. Made alot of profit off that I bet? Wow, Profit?

    We already got all that you moron! Links!!!! Links Please!!!!! Any proof whatsoever?

    Good for them, we appreciate it.

    What a load of garbage.

    Wow, we have had so many suicide and car bombers here? :doubt:

    Great, but we don't need yuh.

    They trained us? LOL!!!!! We are the experts you dipshit! We did it in France, Germany, Vietnam and Korea at a much larger scale. We are levels above you in regards to Guerrilla warfare. You bumped your head on that one.

    Hey Dick? Your over-bloated propagandized lies about how great you are is a joke. You owe everything that you are, including your lives, to us.

    OMG! What would we do without Israel? = Have less debt and have more allies?

    We would have perished without your grand knowledge.

    How could we even exist without Israel? ~BH
