Israeli Leadership... America's Favorite Sheeple

The AFP reports: JERUSALEM (AFP) - Pressure from Washington forced Israel to freeze a major contract with Venezuela to upgrade its US-manufactured F-16 fighter jets, the Israeli defence ministry said.

One source told the Yediot Aharonot daily that the United States was deliberately restricting the deal, worth an estimated 100 million dollars, in order to favour US competitors.

"They do not allow us to realize our potential in the world markets. This makes it very hard for us in our world sales," he said.

Tovya says:

America's defense industry has given Israel the shaft yet again. This is no different than when America canned the Israeli AWAC deal to China, and when General Dynamics (Lockheed-Martin) used Caspar Weinberger to force Israel to can their Lavi project.

America knows that if Israel sold it's highly sought after weapons techonology on the free-market, then it would no longer need U.S. economic aid packages. Israel would be self-sufficient economically.

The U.S. cannot have this. The American government needs to keep Israel under it's thumb so that they can continue to force her to make 'painful concessions'.

At the end of the day, it's Israel's fault because her leaders are cowards who won't standup for their people. Then again maybe it's because they are too busy hugging terrorists and building casinos? Either way, it stinks.

Furthermore, Israel will continue to lose face with the world because they know that at the end of the day, Israel is an American lackey. Eventually, other nations will just stop making deals with Israel because they know that America will force Israel to break her word and cancel any contract she commits herself to.

And behind the scenes, the Israeli government is singing their favorite tune.... "Baaaaahhh"

Yes we are. It's hard to blame others for our problems when in all truth the problem lies at home.
