Assessment of Israel’s Qualitative Military Edge over Military Threats (Section 201) The President is to carry out “an empirical and qualitative assessment on an ongoing basis to the extent to which Israel possesses a qualitative military edge over military threats to Israel. The assessment required under this subsection shall be sufficiently robust so as to facilitate comparability of data over concurrent years.” This assessment is to be used to inform the review by the U.S. of applications to sell defense articles and services under the authority of the AECA to countries in the Middle East. The first report on the assessment shall be submitted to the congressional foreign relations committees not later than 30 June 2009 and every four years thereafter. The AECA is amended with a new Section 36(h) -- Certification Requirement Relating to Israel’s Qualitative Military Edge. Any certification relating to a proposed defense sale or export under this Section [meaning Section 36] to any country in the Middle East other than Israel shall include a determination that the defense sale or export will not adversely affect Israel’s qualitative military edge over military threats to Israel. New Section 36(h)(2) defines “qualitative military edge” to mean the ability to counter and defeat any credible conventional military threat from any individual state or possible coalition of states or from non-state actors, while sustaining minimal damages and casualties, through the use of superior military means, possessed in sufficient quantity, including weapons, command, control, communications, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities that in their technical characteristics are superior in capability to those of such other individual or possible coalition of states or non-state actors.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
