Largest single pledge in history’: US may increase military aid to Israel

Published time: 26 Apr, 2016 16:46

Earlier in the day, 83 US Senators

51 republicans


32 Democrats

sent a letter to the White House urging an increase in aid.

The effort was spearheaded by South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham and Delaware Democrat Chris Coons.

“In light of Israel’s dramatically rising defense challenges, we stand ready to support a substantially enhanced new long-term agreement to help provide Israel the resources it requires

to defend itself and preserve its qualitative military edge,”

the letter said.

Among the Senators who signed the letter were

Texas Republican and presidential contender Ted Cruz


Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren.


Vermont’s Bernie Sanders,

who is challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination,

was notably absent from the list of supporters.

Let’s see, what nationality is Bernie Sanders?


Graham, chairman of the Senate’s Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations

and Related Programs offered one possible explanation for Washington’s sudden eagerness to discuss the current aid arrangement, which expires in 2018.
