Nurturing an Israeli-American-Ukrainian Triangular Relationship

Israel generally does not advertise its weapons exports in the media and this is true this time as well with regard to the secret Israeli weapons deliveries that are apparently underway to Ukraine. The general principle of weapons deliveries to Ukraine has been that each country has given to Ukraine from its own weapons storages. This clearly is not possible for Israel which has no surplus to hand out. However, Israel has domestic capacity to produce advanced military high tech which could prove quite instrumental in defeating Russia and eventually kick out every last Russian soldier from Ukrainian soil. The only question is who will pay for it? The US is rightly pressuring the Israeli government to expand the new secret military deliveries to Ukraine. Israel will of course donate weapons to Ukraine like other democracies do, however the potential is much greater than that. If the United States and other liberal democracies were to fund Israeli high tech military exports to Ukraine, then that could in fact make a significant strategic difference on the battlefield, substantially shorten the war and thus help the global economy.
