Israel Requests the Joint Strike Fighter

Israel is seeking the next-generation Lockheed-Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. It will be very interesting if this becomes a point of leverage on such issues as settlements and territorial compromise over the next year or two. Previous administrations wouldn't have thought of linking US demands about the settlements to arms sales, but perhaps this one will. Worth watching.
