The U.S.-Israeli relationship is pivotal to stability in the Middle East. As the region’s only legitimate democracy that respects human rights and religious freedom, Israel is an important ally to the U.S. in the region and deserves as much economic and military support from the U.S. as needed to ensure that Israel remains strong and able to defend itself.
U.S. aid to Israel is counterproductive to the peace process and inhibits the independent development of Israel’s economy and military. Rather than pouring millions of dollars into the Israeli economy and making Israeli companies dependent on U.S. aid, America should instead allow Israeli companies to develop organically so they can be internationally competitive.
