    I HIGHLY recommend it. A lot of righteous American played a major role in making it happen. Their significant contributions helped to save the fledgling Jewish state from annihilation by their Arab, totalitarian neighbors.

    In 1948, the United States had an arms embargo against Israel (which lasted until 1967).

    The American who help Israel buy AAC surplus B-17s for Israel did jail time for violating the embargo.
