Despite 'row,' US seals military deal with Israel (Source)
The US gives written consent to generously boost the Israeli military despite Washington's alleged dissatisfaction with Israeli settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories.
Upon agreeing on a relevant deal, the United States agreed to hand over roughly 250-million-dollars worth of Hercules C-130J aircraft to the Israeli army, the Israeli Haaretz newspaper said on Thursday.
In case you do not know the C-130J, check it out here. If you have ever seen Transformers, you briefly know what these planes are capable of as they circle above a target reining machine-gun and cannon fire on a target.
The aircraft have been custom made to suit the Israeli needs, the daily added.

Amazing, with all the 'tensions' between the U.S. and Israel right now we still give them incredibly powerful weapons like they are candy.
Since 1950, the US government has provided over $91 billion in FMF to militaries around the world. The vast majority of these funds goes to Israel and Egypt to reward them for making a cold peace in 1979.
