The U.S. has just given Israel the largest military aid package in history.

Netanyahu acknowledged the strain but stressed that the agreement proves that "relations between Israel and the United States are strong, powerful". The deal was also billed as allowing Israel to update the lion's share of its fighter aircraft, strengthen missile defense systems like Iron Dome and purchase more copies of America's next-generation fighter jet, the F-35.

Trading sources estimate that line fill from North Dakota to the Gulf Coast will be some 8 million barrels altogether. There is little commercial storage available in North Dakota, so storing large volumes is not a possibility.

Graham said his bill will also renew the Iran Sanctions Act, the law that mandates numerous existing U.S. sanctions on Iran's energy sector and which expires at the end of the year. "But I will tell you right now, from my point of view, the prime minister has made a mistake here, and, basically, setting up a situation where his friends in Congress - on both sides of the aisle - can't help Israel apart from what this president says".
