The Congressional Research Service report said that Saudi Arabia emerged as the
leading importer of U.S. military equipment in 2009. In a report, CRS said
Riyad replaced Israel as the leading U.S. defense client and received $1.7
billion in weaponry in 2009, Middle East Newsline reported.
The report, titled "U.S. Arms Sales: Agreements with and Deliveries to
Major Clients, 2002-2009," said Saudi Arabia was followed by Egypt and
Israel, which both received $1.2 billion in U.S. weapons in 2009. Iraq
received $700 million in U.S. defense exports in 2009.

CRS, in a report by Richard Grimmett, said Saudi Arabia has replaced
Israel as the leading U.S. defense client.
From 2006 through 2009, Israel
received $5.2 billion worth of American military equipment, with Saudi
Arabia in a close second, with $5 billion.
During that period, Egypt
$4.4 billion; Iraq, $1.7 billion; Kuwait, $1.5 billion, and Turkey $300
So, Obama bows, and the U.S. is the major arms supplier to Saudi Arabia, where freedom is not to be seen, democracy is unknown, and funding for madrassas eminates freely to enable them to cultivate and spread their hatred of the non-Muslim world.
