90149: Pakistan Aid Cutoff: U.S. Nonproliferation and Foreign Policy Considerations
The basic nonproliferation provision affecting Pakistan is Section 101 of the Arms Export Control Act (an expanded version of what was formerly Section 669 of the FAA). This provision forbids aid to countries that acquire nuclear enrichment facilities that are not under the inspection and safeguards system of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The Carter Administration, in April 1979, invoked Section 669 and suspended aid to Pakistan after intelligence information confirmed that Pakistan was building a secret uranium enrichment facility.

Under UNITED STATES LAW, Israel cannot receive US foreign aid unless they allow IAEA inspections.
What was applied to Pakistan must apply equally to Israel.
