The foreign aid bill for 2005 has been approved and once again, Israel is the top recipient followed by Egypt at number 2.
The majority of the money for those two countries will be for military financing.
The total bill was $19.4 billion dollars.
Here's a breakdown of where the foreign aid money will be going:
Israel: $2.56 billion
(Foreign Military Financing $2.2 billion, Economic Support Fund $360 million)
Egypt: $1.835 billion
(Foreign Military Financing $1.3 billion, Economic Support Fund $535 million)
Afghanistan: $1.377 billion
(humanitarian, reconstruction, and related assistance $977 million and $400 million to train and equip the new Afghan National Army)
Pakistan: $150 million foreign Military Financing, $200 million in Economic Support Funds
Sudan: $311 million Economic Support Funds
Jordan: $250 million ESF
Pakistan: $200 million ESF
Haiti: $ 50 million ESF
Lebanon: $ 35 million ESF
Timor-Leste $ 22 million ESF
Cyprus: $ 13.5 million ESF

There is also 1.26 billion going towards fighting Aids and 1.25 billion for the Millennium Challenge Corporation
I find it strange that a country like Israel gets billions of dollars in Aid, while a country like Haiti gets only $50 million. Haiti needs money.
