WHAT ISRAEL DOES FOR THE UNITED STATES

Posted by JewishRefugee

Dr. Steve Carol

Throughout the six decades since the re-establishment of Israel, an often repeated claim in made that “Israel is a draining liability on the United States.” This claim is bogus and an examination of the facts hopefully will consign this charge to the trash-heap where it belongs.

Further adding to the problem are statements made by and the conduct of Israel's leftist leaders since 1993 create the false impression that Israeli-American ties constitute a one-way relationship. The impression is given that the U.S. gives and Israel merely receives and thus must constantly bow to “American pressure” as personified by the U.S. State Department.

The truth is that the relationship is a two-way partnership. For example:

• In 1952, as the Cold War got underway, U.S. Army Chief-of-Staff Omar Bradley called for the integration of Israel into the Mediterranean Basin area, in light of the country's location and unique capabilities.

• In 1967, Israel defeated a radical Arab, pro-Soviet offensive, which threatened to bring about the collapse of pro-American Arab regimes and disrupt oil supply, thus severely undermining the American standard of living. The U.S. gained valuable military information from analysis of captured Soviet equipment, including SAM-2, SAM-12, Mig-21 aircraft, and Soviet T-54 battle tanks. In fact, Israel gave an entire squadron of MiG-21s to the U.S. which was dubbed the “Top Gun” squadron and used by the U.S. Air and Naval forces for training purposes. Since 1967, Israel transferred captured Soviet weapons systems to the U.S. Pentagon after every conflict: 1967, 1967-70, 1973, 1982, 1990 (Scud remnants from the Gulf War), and 2006 (remnants of Iranian supplied missiles.

• In the 1967-1970 1000 Day War of Attrition, the IDF, armed with American aircraft successfully defeated a Soviet-supplied air defense system, pointing out the deficiencies in Soviet air-defense doctrine to US defense planners. Israel shared captured military equipment include P-2 radar and Soviet tanks with the U.S. military.

• In 1970, Israel brought about the withdrawal of Syrian forces from Jordan, at a time when the U.S. was tied up by wars in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, thus preventing the fall of the pro-American Hashemite regime and the installation of a pro-Soviet radical Palestinian terrorist regime.

• In 1973 – thanks to U.S. re-supply, but without U.S. forces, Israel defeated Soviet-trained and equipped Egyptian and Syrian forces. Israel again shared captured Soviet equipment, including T-62 battle tanks with the U.S. Israel emerged as the only reliable ally where U.S. troops could land, where U.S. equipment can be pre-positioned, where the U.S. has friendly port facilities (in Haifa and Ashdod) in the entire Middle East region. This too has saved the U.S. billions of dollars.

• 1970s - Joseph Sisco, a former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, assistant to Secretary of State Henry Kissinger during the latter’s shuttle diplomacy, told the Israeli author and military expert, Shmuel Katz: “I want to assure you, Mr. Katz, that if we were not getting full value for our money, you would not get a cent from us.”

• In 1981, Israel bombed the Iraqi nuclear reactor at Osirak, delaying Saddam Hussein’s quest for nuclear weapons. It thus provided the U.S. with the option of engaging in conventional wars with Iraq in 1991 and 2003.

• The vice president General Dynamics which produces the F16 fighter jets has stated that Israel is responsible for 600 improvements in the plane's systems, modifications estimated to be worth billions of dollars, which spared dozens of research and development years.

• In 1982, Israel destroyed Soviet anti-aircraft batteries in Lebanon that were considered immune to American weapons. Israel promptly shared the operation's lessons, estimated to be worth billions of dollars.

• Former Secretary of State and NATO forces commander Alexander Haig has stated 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.

• During the first Gulf War 1991, Israel provided invaluable intelligence, an umbrella of air cover for military cargo, and had personnel planted in the Iraqi desert to pick up downed American pilots.

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

• In 2005, Israel provided America with the world's most extensive experience in homeland defense and warfare against suicide bombers and car bombs. American soldiers train in IDF facilities and Israeli-made drones fly above the "Sunni Triangle" in Iraq, as well as in Afghanistan, providing U.S. Marines with vital intelligence.

• In September 2007, the IAF destroyed a Syrian-North Korean nuclear plant, extending the US’s strategic arm. It provided the US with vital information on Russian air defense systems, which are also employed by Iran. It bolstered the US posture of deterrence and refuted the claim that US-Israel relations have been shaped by political expediency.

• In 2009, Israel shares with the US its battle-tested experience in combating Palestinian and Hizbullah terrorism, which are the role model of anti-US Islamic terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. US GIs benefit from Israel’s battle tactics against car bombs, improvised explosive devices and homicide bombing. An Israel-like ally in the Persian Gulf would have spared the need to dispatch US troops to Iraq, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

• Israel has relayed to the U.S. lessons of battle (during the Cold War – Soviet military doctrine) and counter-terrorism (including aircraft security, homicide-suicide bombings) which reduce American losses in Iraq and Afghanistan, prevent attacks on U.S. soil, upgrade American weapons, and contribute to the U.S. economy. Without Israel, the U.S. would have been forced to deploy tens of thousands of American troops in the eastern Mediterranean Basin, at a cost of billions of dollars a year.

• Senator Daniel Inouye has recently (2005) argued Israeli information regarding Soviet arms saved the U.S. billions of dollars. The contribution made by Israeli intelligence to America is greater than that provided by all NATO countries combined, he said.

• Israel's utilization of American arms guarantees its existence, but at the same time gives U.S. military industries, such as Boeing and General Dynamics, a competitive edge compared to European industries, while also boosting American military production, producing American jobs, and improving America's national security. Japan and South Korea, for example, preferred the "Hawkeye" spy plane and the MD-500 chopper, both purchased and upgraded by Israel, over comparable British and French aircraft.

• The American industries want U.S. aid to Israel to continue. The bulk of the $1.8 billion in annual U.S. military aid to Israel must be spent in the United States. That provides jobs for some 50,000 U.S. workers. Virtually all of the $1.2 billion in annual economic aid goes for repayment of debt to the United States, incurred from military purchases dating back many years. This debt is now close to being liquidated.

• Innovative Israeli technologies have a similar effect on American civilian, including computer-related industries and agricultural industries, which view Israel as a successful research and development site.

• Members of the U.S. Congress leaders, then Vice President Dick Cheney, and then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld are aware of Israel's unique contribution to U.S. interests. But, in fact, they all wonder why the post-1993 Israel does not use its impressive contribution as leverage, in sharp contrast to the pre-1993 Israel.

• In contrast to our commitments to Korea, Japan, Germany and other parts of the world, not a single American serviceperson needs to be stationed in Israel. Considering that the cost of one serviceperson per year – including backup and infrastructure – is estimated to be about $200,000 per year, and assuming a minimum contingent of 25,000 troops, the cost savings to the United States on that score alone are on the order of $5 billion a year.

Look, I wish the best for Israel and its people. However, Israel is the single largest recipient of US aid, over $3 Billion annually. They simply do not do enough for the US to warrant this kind of money. We have a permanent target around our necks because of Israel. In modern time, I can't agree with keeping conquered land. I say this, no more free US aid, allow them to purchase top of the line weapons, have a MUTUAL defense treaty, then call it a day. Emphasis on mutual, no more sitting on the sidelines during Gulf War 1, 2, and Afghanistan.

Speaking as a Jew I must say I like Israel and admire it, but we give them way too much money......

I went there on a "free" program to do volunteer work and it ended up costing me 7 thousand dollars.....

Israel is a great country and we need to protect it, but the AIPAC lobbyist group makes everything a joke by bribing politicians and getting way too much power.

I'm all for Israel, but in these dire financial times we need to cut back financial support we can not afford.

Israel will always be one of our best friends. We can not abandon it just because times are tough, but we need them to know we don't have an endless open wallet to share...

If there weren't so many people of the Jewish faith here in our political system, there would be little association with Israel.

What bugs me is the Jewish population here constantly cries about the Holocaust then as soon as they can afford one they buy a German car.

Could not help but notice That you left out the fact in 1967 Israel attacked and almost sank the U.S.S. Liberty. They tried to sink it to draw the U.S in to the war with Egypt. When they got caught Israel claimed it was a case of mistaken identity. Israel is NO friend of the U.S and it is my feeling we should pull all support and let Israel deal with the rest of the Arab world on there own. We could use the billions we give to Israel here at home a whole lot more and see a damned sight more return.

In the response to the comment about Jews "crying about the Holocaust" and then purchasing a German car: Buying a German car is tantamount to throwing meat to the tiger; as long as Germany's economy is strong, there will be no need for someone like Hitler to come to power again. Thus, I would encourage everyone to buy German products. In fact, Israel does a lot of economic trade with Germany.

In response to the comment about Israel attacking the ship called the USS Liberty: Israel did not try to bring the United States into the Six Day War by attacking the USS Liberty, since by that point in the war (June 8th, 1967), Egypt's forces were already defeated and were in full retreat. Rather, Israel attacked the spy ship the USS Liberty because it was gathering highly sensitive electronic information about Israeli troop movements, and subsequently passing that information on to a British Mi6 listening post on the Island of Cyprus, which in turn was passing it on to the Arab armies that Israel was fighting. In other words, the USS Liberty, on the orders of the US government, was selling Israel out, and therefore Israel had to put a stop to this treachery. The US government wanted to salvage some sort of victory for the defeated Egyptian army, especially since the US relies very heavily on oil from Arab countries. When Israel learned that the USS Liberty was intent on passing information on to the Egyptians that a large contingency of Israeli forces were going to be withdrawn from the southern part of Israel to fight the Syrians in the north, the Israeli jets attacked the spy ship to prevent this highly sensitive information from being revealed.

If you don't believe me, then ask yourself this question: Why did both the National Security Agency (NSA) and President Lyndon Johnson tell the fighter jets that were scrambled from a nearby American aircraft carrier to stand down when the USS Liberty was under attack?! The captain of the USS Liberty called in American air support, since his ship was under attack, but he was denied the support that he requested from both the NSA and the president. Moreover, what was a sophisticated "electronics gathering" ship such as the USS Liberty doing so close to Israel's southern coast in the midst of a large scale military conflict? It was spying on Israel!

Anonymous said...

I am sure the men on the Liberty would also like to know don't you ? It seams to me that it could be just as likely that for L.B.J to get in to that war Blaming the Egyptians for sinking an unarmed American warship would be a pretty good way to do it . I think maybe he only thing that is he got sick of the botched job the I.D.F did of sinking the Liberty and called it off guess we will never know. As far as spying and you thought we wouldn't want to see some of what was going on ? Selling Israel out ? ... please for what gain ? For the honor of giving billions of tax payer dollars that could be put to much better use here in the states. If ever comes the day when the cash tap turns off Israel will have to learn to play nice with the other children.

Jonathan Jay Pollard got caught spying for Israel in 1987 got life for that. Stewart David Nozette, a US government scientist who was arrested in an October 2009 FBI sting operation after offering to spy for Israel, has been waiting in jail to go to trial on espionage charges. FBI report called “Foreign Economic Collection and Industrial Espionage.” The 2005 report, for example, states:

“Israel has an active program to gather proprietary information within the United States. These collection activities are primarily directed at obtaining information on military systems and advanced computing applications that can be used in Israel’s sizable armaments industry.”

all of this is war-related!!! what about something to help the people?!!!

Anonymous said...

LOL, I found this article while trying to search for meaningful contributions that Israel has given to the U.S. that were *not* war-related. So I guess the only thing Israel has done for us is put our weapons to use and give us intel on its experience with them. Thanks Israel!

I see a lot of anti-Israel comments. Why don't people question the fact that we give $3 billion to Egypt?

Anonymous said...

Because most people are simply anti-semites, disliking Jews for their amazing success. They will never admit it, they will make up stories calling them occupants, while themselves living on occupied land that used to belong to Native Americans. Very few people know that Israel does NOT anymore receive any USA economic assistance. USA only gives Israel military help. Why? Because it's the most loyal USA ally in the Middle East, which is crucial for USA nowadays with rising terrorism. It's the only country in the whole world that struggles for its existence all its life, yet it’s the only country that gets the highest criticism. It’s simply anti-Semitism of 21st Century.

The Jewish state should have been made up of land seized from Germany after loosing World War II. If Israel wasn't located in the middle East the Arabs would be fighting and killing each other not obsessing over Jews. As long as we do Israels will the Arabs will be our enemies. We could sure us that money here on US soil.

Israel owes their very existance to the US. They would have been crushed by the Arabs, if the US hadn't been the first to akcknowledge the State of Israel. Do the research. The US gave them the land, the supplies, the armament, and the money. Israel buys goods from the US using money they were given by the US. Everything else that is given to the US by Israel was seized from other countries. Israels power to take these items is provide by the US. I have nothing against Israel but it's time for them to get off the tit and be Independent. We stopped providing aid to Iraq after 10 years of war but we continue to provide aid to Israel after 50+ years.

Almost all of the info the author stated on this site that supposedly shows how Israel has helped the U.S. are things that have benefited Israel! You still haven't justified the hundreds-of-billions of dollars the U.S. has given Israel (and still is giving)over the past years. As far as I know, not a single Israeli soldier has died during the Iraqi war!

The best nutshell definition of Israeli-U.S. relations is still the one attributed to Moshe Dayan. “Our American friends,” he allegedly quipped, “offer us money, weapons, and advice. The American-Israeli bond is so unique that it defies to us healthcare supplynutshelling. It’s more of a nut grove. It never rested on reason of state alone. Americans and Israelis subvert the core curriculum of political-science departments and the truisms of international relations. Our friendship is of course about money, weapons, and advice—but also about something subtler.

For you to be an israeli lawyer, you need to be licensed. Licensing is a four step process that includes: sitting for a Hebrew proficiency exam, law of Israel exams, Israel bar exams, and completing a one year legal internship. Although, these are the processes involved when you are an Israeli local, there are exemptions. For example when you are a foreigner and you have over two years of foreign experience as a lawyer, you are allowed to go ahead with your one year internship after passing the Hebrew proficiency exam. If you are a foreigner and you want to practice law in Israeli, you need to be proficient in Hebrew as it’s the main language of communication.

Maybe this would help pay down the debt owed to the United States by Israel: Each month any American who applies and qualifies will be given an all expense paid tour of Israel (of perhaps 2 weeks?). The exact number per month or year or whatever would depend on the terms worked out by the two governments. Any American fearful of flying to that part of the world or using Israel's airlines could use a cruise ship to go to Israel. That is one way it could be done perhaps, however fanciful it sounds; they can't do enough, as far as I'm concerned, to repay the debt they owe the US. The same goes for Egypt--nobody asked the American people if their debt is or should be "forgiven"--they need to put Americans up at the best hotels they have, ride camels for free if they want to, see the pyramids for free, have all the goddamn hummus and pita bread they damn well want FOR FREE!! The prices will be bargain prices set by American tour companies, not Israelis or Egyptians.
