Israel China Trade Agreement

It is significant that warnings from pro-Israel officials such as former US National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have been widely heard on deaf ears. In exchange, Israel`s relations with China have not become the most controversial issue in U.S.-Israel relations. The U.S. firm support for Israel on security, economics, and politics — which is already crumbling to the American left — could also be undermined by this deal on the American right. Moreover, Washington`s withdrawal from the Middle East, justified by the diminishing US interests in the region, has prompted Israel to seek out other benefactors, including China. As part of the phase one agreement between the United States and China, the latter implicitly attempts to conclude its own agreement with Israel.
