Most senators urge Obama to boost defense aid to Israel

A large majority of US senators on Monday urged President Barack Obama to expand defense-related aid to Israel by signing a “robust” commitment to help Washington’s Mideast ally combat mounting security challenges. Eighty-three of the chamber’s 100 members signed the letter to the president highlighting the need to negotiate an enhanced memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Jewish state. “In light of Israel’s dramatically rising defense challenges, we stand ready to support a substantially enhanced new long-term agreement to help provide Israel the resources it requires to defend itself and preserve its qualitative military edge,” wrote the 51 Republicans and 32 Democrats.
