In the peace process, the U.S. claimed to be an “honest broker” fair to both sides. At the same time, the U.S. proclaimed itself the unswerving ally of Israel. These roles are contradictory. Massive U.S. aid funds the occupation.
U.S. financial aid: Since 1949, the U.S. has given Israel well over $87,000,000,000 in grants, loans and other assistance. This amounts to over $15,000 per Israeli citizen. For more information read the official Congressional Research brief entitled, Israel: U.S. Foreign Assistance.
U.S. military aid: U.S. aid has made Israel the third or fourth most powerful military force in the world. Israel is using U.S. F-16 fighters and Apache helicopters in attacks against Palestinian civilians. This violates the U.S. Foreign Arms Export Act.
