US awards each Israeli citizen 500 dollars a year in aid
The United States government awards each Israeli citizen 500 dollars a year in aid.
John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt write in their book, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy:
“Israel receives about $3 billion in direct foreign assistance each year, which is roughly one-fifth of America’s entire foreign aid budget.
“In per capita terms, the United States gives each Israeli a direct subsidy worth about $500 per year.
“This largesse is especially striking when one realizes that Israel is now a wealthy industrial state with a per capita income roughly equal to South Korea or Spain.”
