US Aid: The Facts
– Israel and the US have a long-established special
relationship. The US was the first country to
recognise the establishment of the State of
Israel in 1948.
– Israel is considered America’s closest non-NATO ally
in the Middle East, a region that is geopolitically
crucial to the US.
– The close relationship between the two states is
reflected in the volume of aid Israel receives from
the US. Since World War II Israel has been the
largest overall recipient of US aid: from 1949-2006
Israel received more than $156 billion of direct US aid.
– Until 2003, Israel received approximately
one-third of the annual US foreign aid budget.
In 2005, the US gave Israel more than $2.6 billion
in aid, a budget exceeded only by US aid to Iraq.
