While the United States will give Israel $38 billion in military assistance over the next decade, the largest such aid package in U.S. history, it is revealed that Europe does not seem to give any military assistance to Israel, with the exception of some very limited subsidies from Germany.
Unsurprisingly, Europe boasts it is "the largest financial contributor to the Palestinian Authority, refugees and regional Peace Process projects".
"Since 1993 the European Commission and the EU member-states combined have been by far the largest aid contributor to the Palestinians."
Ygal Palmor via Facebook:
- Is the $38Bn figure from the US alone? How does this figure compare to analogous aid to other states?
- yes the 38bn is the US military aid
Yigal Palmor Yes, from the US alone. And there's no need to compare, Israel does not get any aid, civilian or military, from any other country. The exception being Germany's subsidies for submarines built for the Israeli navy since the 90's: first two were provided free of charge, next 4 at a 30% discount financed by the German government. The subsidy is evaluated at €130 million per vessel.
