President Bush’s budget request includes increased military aid for Israel. Released Monday, the budget calls for $2.1 billion in military aid and $600 million in economic aid for Israel. This is in keeping with a plan to increase Israel’s military aid by $60 million each year while decreasing its economic aid by $120 million each year until 2009 when, according to the plan, U.S. economic aid to Israel will end.
