By Abraham Ben-Zvi

Lyndon B. Johnson and the Politics of hands revenues to Israel seeks to reconstruct and elucidate the methods in the back of the choices made by means of the Johnson management in the course of the years 1965-68 to promote Israel M-48 tanks, A-4 Skyhawk planes and F-4 Phantom planes. This exam relies on a contrast among 3 factions which competed for impression inside Washington's high-policy elite: the traditionalists (whose significant consultant used to be Secretary of kingdom Dean Rusk); the pragmatists (whose so much outspoken consultant was once Robert Komer of the nationwide safety Council); and the regionally orientated policymakers (the vital decision-maker who quintessentially exemplifies this classification being President Johnson). This e-book is a sequel to John F. Kennedy and the Politics of fingers to Israel, which tested the 1st fingers deal among the united states and Israel.

Convinced that, in view of President Nasser’s ‘desire not to become too dependent on the Soviet Union,’ American diplomacy was provided with an exquisite opportunity to exert ‘some restraining influence on [Egyptian policies] by creating a vested interest, on Nasser’s part, in good relations with the US,’2 President Kennedy moved quickly to vastly increase the level of economic assistance to Egypt (particularly the PL480 surplus wheat program) without making it contingent upon any specific political or economic preconditions.
