Israel And China: New Besties?

china israelNot quite, but latest developments are enough to displease the Muslim/Arab states and BDSholes.

“It’s true that, in the past, the government favored the Arab side more, but in recent years the emphasis of the government has been on rapid technology development,” said Chen, “and that is why cooperation with Israel, which has that technology, is growing.” Chen could not promise that China would always vote Israel’s way on UN Security Council resolutions, “but you can see that, in recent years, we have conducted a much more positive political policy towards Israel.”

I see this as at least partly the result of the Obama administration’s treatment of Israel. It is analogous to a jilted lover (Israel) being driven in to the arms of another man (China).

In any event, we are this close to getting discounts on Chinese food. And once we do, there will be no stopping us.

    The purchase of Tnuva Foods by a Chinese company continues a longstanding trend of foreign businesses coming to Israel to play “Let’s Make a Deal” because that’s where the profits are. As a result, the shekel is one of the world’s strongest currencies and Israel’s sovereign wealth per capita is among the highest in the world. China can’t help but notice these things and respond with attempts to get in on the action. It also makes the BDSholes look petty and ridiculous.
