that's most likely why the US agreed with the sales agreement with Egypt, and Jordan.. along with the financial aid to develop their military capability.
in case ppl didn't know, Egypt have a large size of modern armored force now... supplied by... yep you guessed it, US of A.
it was one of the thing that made the US and Israel relationship nervous during those period as for the first time in years Egypt actually then possessed technologically equivalent armor to Israel, although the tension has long subsided and returned to more amiable level.
Similarly with Jordan military purchases, which technically started WAYYYY back but only increases even more in the past decades.
Essentially, quite a few state or country deemed as western friendly in the area by the US have received some sort of arms deal in one form or another in US bid to increase their influence there... some naturally did not turn out too well for them when the country turned around and became hostile, like Iran... but Israel is not actually the only one, Israel is however one of the largest recipient and one of the most stable.
