IS CHINA AN EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO ISRAEL?

MAKING THE CASE
 
WATCH:  Webinar | The CCP’s Invasion of Israel: How Xi Set Fire to the Middle East – and Why:  Committee on the Present Dangers of China, May 27, 2024 — Spain, Ireland and Norway formally recognized a non-existent state of “Palestine” today. They thus indulged in the sort of European virtue-signaling that has brought us such past “triumphs” of diplomacy as the 1928 Kellogg-Briand pact that banned war.

CCP’s 3-Battle Scheme: Eroding U.S. Power Before Taiwan Strait Clash Long Kaifeng, Lei’s Real Talk, Apr. 9, 2023 — Yesterday, I wrote an article titled “Along with intense international struggles, recent events are numerous, and the U.S.’s downfall is inevitable.” This piece sparked controversy among many readers. Some think I’m boasting too much, and the idea of the U.S. disintegrating is unrealistic.

Tracking Chinese Statements on the Hamas-Israel Conflict Grant Rumley and Rebecca Redlich, The Washington Institute for Near East Policy, May 10, 2024 — In almost every conflict between Hamas and Israel, China’s messaging has followed a familiar pattern: urge all parties to exercise restraint, reiterate the importance of the two-state solution, and pledge commitment to supporting peace negotiations, typically through an international conference.

Why China Has Chosen to Side with Hamas — And Iran — Over Israel:  Michael Mazza, NY Post, Oct. 11, 2023 — Beijing claims to be a “friend” to Israel, but signs of any such friendship have been in short supply in recent days.
 
Israel Learns the Hard Way That Russia, China Are Not Its Friends:  Lahav Harkov, Jewish Insider, Nov. 1, 2023 — When Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, Israel found itself in a diplomatically delicate situation: It opposed the invasion and naturally sided with the West, but needed Russia’s support to be able to strike Iranian proxies in the Middle East. Israel pulled its punches against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s belligerence, providing humanitarian, but not military, aid to Ukraine, which drew criticism in the U.S.
