Ari & I: August 3, 2001

Russell Mokhiber

Mokhiber: Ari, excuse me, in July 1996, then [Israeli] Prime Minister Netanyahu told a joint session of Congress that he wanted to begin to wean Israel off of what he called generous American assistance -- $1.2 billion in economic aid at that time.

Since then, we continue to send military equipment and economic aid to Israel.
