Signs indicate that Israel and the US are on the verge of signing a historic Memorandum of Understanding which would include a US military aid package of $38 billion. While support from the US is appreciated, Josh argues that Israel needs to start relying on others less, and on itself more when it comes to defense technologies and hardware. Under the terms of the deal, Israel would gradually have to spend that aid money in the US as opposed to supporting local defense companies. That scenario could put Israelis out of business. At the same time, the aid package could be held over Israel’s head as leverage in future “peace” negotiations, which Josh argues could harm Israelis, especially those living in Judea and Samaria. Also on the show a ‘Sunday of miracles’ when at least five potentially major terror attacks and plots were thwarted throughout the country.

  1. The U.S. is not reliable. During operation Protective Edge, Obama embargoed Hellfire Missiles, even though, there was a signed agreement. Obama promised increased aid to Israel, because of the Iran deal. However, he is now delaying an increase in aid. We can build the chassis and avionics, just as good and far cheaper. We only need the Pratt Whitney engine.

  2. I agree. No one makes better military equipment than Israel does. Case in point is the drone that flew into northern Israel from Syria. Israel shot two American made patriots that cost millions at the drone and they both failed. Intentionally sabotaged by Obama? I wouldn't be surprised if it was true. We should just give the money to Israel to use as they see fit as they know what's best for their defense.

  3. Israel is quite capable of building most of its own defence technology and in this way it cannot be told by ANYBODY what it can or cannot do with it. Israel knows what it requires and is capable (now) of manufacturing 80% of it. The rest will come in the near future.
