The US has promised to send fresh shipments with anti-ship and antitank missiles as well as so-called smart and bunker-busting bombs to four Arab countries.
Israeli officials have expressed concern over the scope and content of several major arms which the Pentagon has recently signed with several Arab states allied with Washington.
The receivers of these advanced weapons are Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.
In December, the Pentagon notified Congress of several arms deals it wanted to carry out and certified that none of the deals would alter the military balance in the region.
But Israel’s defense establishment is wary of the deals, even though the Obama administration is arguing that the armaments will boost the deterrence capabilities of Egypt, Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries in relation to Iran.
One of the deals troubling Israel was the sale to Egypt of four batteries of Harpoon Block II anti-ship cruise missiles, in a deal worth USD 145 million and co ntaining 20 missiles.
The U.S. also sold Egypt four fast missile boats in a deal worth USD 1.29 billion. Another deal with Egypt includes 450 Hellfire antitank missiles for its air forces “to protect its borders,” the Pentagon explained in its report to Congress.
A US president who believe in the «great and peaceful religion of Islam», will hock or by crock force the Jewish state of Israel into peace.
The best way to do this is obviously to increase the threat of war. When a war the leadership in Israel feel they can not win is looming, they will bow down to the «peace» proposals from Washington and Mecca.
The Nobel peace prize winner Barack Hussein Obama has found the winning way to create such a war threat scenario around Jerusalem.
Simply by increasing the prize of advanced American weapons to Israel, and rather exchange them for discounted oil deliveries from the Arab World.
