New spending program that kicked in this year. Per Wikipedia, our foreign assistance to Israel was $2.96B in FY13. Per the memorandum of understanding agreement between Israel and the US earlier this year, that figure will jump to ~$3.8B per year starting in 2019. Israel gets ~50% of all US Foreign aid. It should be noted that the article quotes Lindsey Graham who says that still isn't enough aid and that Congress will not be bound by the agreement the Obama admin signed. Of particular not was a line that said Israel will not request more $$$ except in time of war. Still, by all evidence the Obama Admin felt comfortable increasing Israel aid significantly in spite of the Obama/Bibi difference. Here is a better article that stated this was a 27% increase over the previous agreement.
