The committee heard testimony on foreign aid to Israel and the West Bank. Witnesses testified on the history of U.S. foreign aid to Israel, and Israel’s current position in the Middle East. The recent visit of Secretary of State James Baker to Middle East countries was discussed by the committee. The foreign aid package before the committee proposed a $1.8 billion military grant assistance, with an extra $51 million in FMA grant assistance. Over $200 million in military equipment was and will be delivered to Israel in 1991. The hearing was marked by the impatience of committee members at not being able to receive answers from the witnesses on policy questions. close
