Capitol Hill restore funding for Israel to pre-sequester levels. Included in this bill is USD 268.7 million in funding for anti-missile programs.
Funding to Israel was restored to its pre-sequester levels in the spending bill the U.S. House of Representatives passed.
The bill keeps funding for Israel at $3.1 billion for 2014, the amount designated in a 2007 10-year memorandum of understanding that guaranteed Israel an average of USD 3 billion a year in assistance.
The USD 1.1 trillion bill passed Wednesday is the result of a deal brokered last month between Democrats and Republicans who have struggled for months to compromise on spending bills.

With the Obama administration playing on both side of the table, this is probably the last part of the “20 silver coins” being offered to Israel.
Basically, Israel should decline any financial “aid” from Washington D.C. By accepting this kind of “help” Israel acts like a banana republic, or a third world country.
But among the Israelites not a dog will bark at any person or animal. Then you will know that the Lord makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel.
Israel should be smart, and offer financial help and services to the Obama administration. Since the US is 17 trillion USD downhill in debts.
Israel can definitely live without the promised commitments that has to be given from Jerusalem to receive this kind of “aid”.
