Why Does the U.S. Support and Fund Israel So Much? | WSJ

Since WWII, the U.S. has provided more foreign aid to Israel than any other country, giving about $3.8 billion a year in economic and military aid. Given disagreement over the ongoing war with Hamas in Gaza, the future of this arrangement is now uncertain. Could vocal calls for pausing aid, mainly from the left wing of the Democratic Party like Sen Bernie Sanders, lead to a rejection of Biden’s security assistance package?

WSJ explores why Israel still receives so much aid from the U.S. and examines the current fight over conditional aid.
