WASHINGTON, September 16, 2016 – Why was Israeli P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu forced to hail the new memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed between Washington and Jerusalem as a historic achievement for Israel? Particularly when former prime minister Ehud Barak is saying the agreement is not “adding up”?
According to the White House Fact Sheet:
Under President Obama’s leadership, the multifaceted cooperation between the United States and Israel has reached unprecedented levels. This is particularly true with regard to the security of Israel. The new 10-year security assistance Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to Israel is the most recent reflection of President Obama’s unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security.
Under the new MOU with Israel, the Obama Administration has made the largest single pledge of military assistance in U.S. history.
