Technical note:  Israeli preparations to attack Iran almost equal to US aidDr. Aaron Lerner Date: 26 January 2015

According to various reports, over the past several years Israel has been 
spending around $3 billion a year on preparations to attack Iran.

There are two schools of view regarding the “investment”:

One view is that is that Israel has to spend the money to convince the 
United States that the Jewish State is serious in its warning that if it has 
no choice it will act alone.

The other explanation is that Israel spends the $3 billion because it 
recognizes that it may genuinely reach the point that it has no choice but 
to act on its own.

Either way, to the extent that the $3 billion is specifically geared to an 
attack against Iran rather than to general capabilities, this money is being 
spent by Israel because of a failure on the part of the world to rein in 

Interestingly, the %3 billion comes very close to matching the military aid 
the United States provides Israel.
