    US aid for Israel is very heavily discussed by critics of Israel. If any country’s aid from the US has readily accessible information on the internet, it would be Israel. What research have you done before asking this question? – Andrew Grimm Dec 16 '17 at 2:04

According to the Jewish Virtual Library $79,823.4 million in military aid and $129,808.527 million in total aid (click the link for a per-year overview)

To put that into relation, in 2017 for example US security assistance consisted of:

  • Afghanistan: 3.67 billion
  • Israel: 3.1 billion
  • Egypt: 1.31 billion
  • Iraq: $808 million
  • Jordan: 367.6 million
  • Pakistan: 319,7 million
  • Syria: 313.5 million
  • Colombia: 203,9 million
  • Lebanon: 123,5 million
  • Mexico: 85,6 million

For an overview of economic aid visit the link (Israel isn't in the top 10 there, and hasn't received any non-military aid worth mentioning since 2007).

  • while this answer has good data, the question is not to compare US assistance to israel with other countries in 2017, the question is: How much is the sum of military aid and economic assistance Israel has received from the United States, since it declared till now? – user 1 Dec 18 '17 at 7:30

    @user1 Right, I answered that in the first sentence. But I also think that the number is mostly meaningless if you have no point of comparison on how much that actually is. I chose 2017 - the data looks similar in other years. I think a complete overview over all US foreign aid would have been better, but I wasn't able to find that (if you do, please feel free to post an answer). – tim Dec 18 '17 at 7:36
  • "I chose 2017 - the data looks similar in other years." is not true; e.g. Afghanistan case. does Afghanistan receive such a assistance for 70 years? – user 1 Dec 18 '17 at 7:40

    @user1 Sorry, yes, I meant in recent years. Though as you can see from the linked overview, military aid to Israel didn't start until '59, and didn't really take off until '71. – tim Dec 18 '17 at 8:03
