China-Israel fact of the day

Chinese money is increasingly flowing into Israeli hi-tech companies and is likely to overtake the US as the number one source of foreign investment for the Jewish state.

Here is the full article, via the excellent Mark Thorson.

So will the US government stop sending billions of US taxpayer money to Israel?

What's one got to do with the other?

Since China is becoming Israel's big financial buddy why should the US send billions to Israel.

The same reason it does now: Israeli Lobby, ADL, AIPAC, Joe Lieberman,
John Hagee, etc. The whole fifth column destroying your country from inside.

The fifth column is made up of alt.Nazis and jihadists. The obvious solution is internment camps for both groups.

"The fifth column is made up of alt.Nazis and jihadists."
And radical Zionists such as Mr. Pollard and his apologists. They are destroying America from inside and no one dares call it treason!

The fifth column is in the dunces in White House and they don't even they part of it.

How exactly are they "destroying America from the inside"?

They are putting a foreign power's interests above America's.

And the outcome of the Camp David accords presume an equal amount of aid to Arab countries, largely Egypt. Perhaps a cut in foreign aid to both contingents might be useful.

The next dictatorship America cuts off will be the first. America has become the focal point of evil in our times.

Egypt alone has over 10 times the population of Israel. If we are simply trying to bash the Muslims, sure, keep the aid equal. If we are trying to help those countries develop, the current breakdown is insane.

Is there a relationship between aid and development?

The majority of the money is economic assistance, rather military aid. And most of it is distributed through the agency USAID. Does it meet its development goals? Probably not in most cases. But in terms of need for either kind of assistance, Israel is much wealthier than most other recipients.

Some weapons (not "money") to Israel, far more expensive soldiers to Europe and Asia.

No, it now also troops and money

http://www.businessinsider.com/us-military-base-in-israel-air-defense-negev-desert-2017-9

"Dozens" of airmen will be stationed there per the article. Cue 4,000 gaseous words from Andrew Bacevich. Oh the humanity.

I was answering a statement which implied that expensive soldiers were not sent to Israel and they are

It started with some money and then a lot of money and then some military stores and then a lot of military stores and now some troops which also include more then just :dozens of airmen but "peacekeepers" and supply personnel.

Also there is a billion dollars of US "emergency reserve" equipment in Israel

American aid to Israel has been frozen in nominal terms for over 30 years, and is contextually of vastly less importance than it used to be. But keep on kvetching.

So why are you kvetching about it? It should be ended because of its vast unimportance.

If it makes you happy we could cut off all foreign aid not just foreign aid to Israel.

Pay attention. Plot against America: According to Foreign Policy, “Beijing Builds Its Influence in the American Media by Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian

How a California-based Chinese-language newspaper amplifies China’s message.”

America may be falling to Communism as we speak.

Heh. And the Palestinians are so downtrodden that even the Communists have thrown them over the side.

They have been backstabbed.

No, but https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30knrJBeyr0

Actually, imagine an auction where the auctioner gets the losing bidding as well as the winning bidding. Likewise is the effort to gain influence over a "friendly" (remember Pollard). If you lose, you lose real money. If you mean, you lose real money, too. Do you really think Israel will hesitate at throwing the goys umder the bus? Wake up, sheeple.

China is rising, Bitcoin is falling. Cowen was half right. 50/50 is far better than most economists when they put on their soothsayer hat.

How many weeks until Philip Giraldi pens a column contending this is all a nefarious Joo trick?

When he does, I’m sure you’ll be there with your usual cuckoldry.

It looks to me more like Chinese companies are investing in Israeli start ups to make things in China. Just a division of labor issue: Israel wants a cheap place to manufacture, and gets foreign investors to pay for part of the start up costs.

Israel is not a low cost manufacturing hub.

It's part of the

"Let's Make Israel Great Again" Program

Or

Is it

"Let's Make China Great Again?"

We are number one, We are number one.

Who is We?

Here's a 2004 paper from the Jewish People Policy Planning Institute, a centrist Israeli thinktank usually chaired by a prominent American Democratic insider like Dennis Ross or Stewart Eizenstadt:

China and the Jewish People
Old Civilizations in a New Era
STRATEGY PAPER
by Dr. Shalom Salomon Wald

From the Intro by Dennis Ross:

With China’s increasing significance, this strategic paper makes a strong and compelling case for much greater Jewish engagement with China. Indeed, it makes little sense not to follow this advice. There is something to be gained by building the Jewish relationship with the world’s most populous country and something to be lost if this is not done. The paper offers a range of policy recommendations, including the creation of a permanent delegation representing world Jewry to establish an ongoing channel of communication with the Chinese as well as a high level symposium for Chinese policy makers to discuss global issues and mutual relations.
Whether one embraces all of the ideas, the research has clearly identified an area that has been little addressed and that offers important possibilities for the future of the Jewish people. Policy planning should be measured not only by trying to minimize emerging problems but also by taking advantage of potential opportunities. Salomon Wald has certainly met that standard in this paper.

So that is. America being encircled from outside by Asian hordes and undermined from inside by a diligent fifth column. Austria, 1938. Czechoslovakia, 1948. Cuba 1958/1959. Czechoslovalia, 1968. Iran, 1978/1979. Soviet Union, 1988/1989 Comoros, 2008. America, 2018?

Encircled by Asian hordes??

Red China's.

A lot of security software is written in Israel. I'd be concerned about Chinese backed firms developing my security.

Growth of Chinese economic power generates foreign investments. Is Chinese investment in Israel disproportionate to their investments in other similar markets?
