$200 million Extra Denied Israel. White House cancels $200 million extra aid for Israel By Nathan Guttman, Ha'aretz Correspondent Israel's chance of receiving an additional $200 million American aid package in the coming financial year has diminished because of fears that additional aid to Israel at this time would be seen as a further pro-Israel bias, sources in Washington say. The State Department had originally asked Congress for additional aid - on top of the $2.8 billion in military and economic aid that Israel gets every year - but this was axed because the White House asked all government offices to cut additional aid requests because for fear of a budget deficit. Pro-Israel members of Congress then decided to try to get the aid pushed through and had achieved a majority in favor. But in the last week the administration pressured Republican leaders in Congress, especially Tom DeLay, a leading supporter of additional aid for Israel. The Washington sources said the White House had convinced the Republicans and they would withdraw the request. This means any additional aid for Israel will have to wait till next year.

Multiply that by another 10x and we have a deal.
