The United States has supported Israel without reservations since its founding in 1948. According to an agreement between the two countries, that has become a law in the US; the US has committed itself to preserve Israel's strategic and military superiority in relation to other countries in the Middle East. From 1949 till today, the US has provided Israel with nearly $122bn in aid, calculated by reference to fixed dollars.
