Israel pays to the U.S. the loans it receives as economic
aid, as well as for military equipment. It makes its pay-
ments regularly and on time, with added interest. It has the
sources enabling the country to meet its foreign debts
through export of Israeli products. Its export to the United
States last year amounted to over $1 billion — which was
of
about 25 percent of Israel's total export. Among the prod-

method of payments of these credits remain unknown and

DEFIANCE OF TODAY: In the long run, the Ameri-
can taxpayer covers the cost of the armaments which the
U.S. "sells" to Jordan. A good part of the "loans" which the
U.S. government makes to Jordan in millions Of dollars
annually is eventually "forgiven."
This will happen also if the U.S. "sells" the F-16 jets
and the mobile Hawk missiles to Jordan. King Hussein has
lots of "hutzpa" when it comes to the United States but he
has no means to pay for the armaments he wants from the
United States. He displays no such "hutzpa" toward Saudi
Arabia. He listens to his "master's voice" and complies with
the will of Saudi Arabia, but he flatly refuses to cooperate
with the U.S. government in efforts to establish stability in
the Middle East through understandings similar to the one
11 Mile & Lanser
reached between Egypt and Israel at Camp David.
At present, he is about to receive Soviet-made anti-
aircraft missiles in defiance of the U.S. This will bring
Soviet military advisers and technicians to Jordan for the
first time.
