China Said To Threaten U.S.-Israel Ties
TEL AVIV [MENL] -- China's increasing business presence in Israel could
threaten its relations with the United States, a report said.
The Shasa Institute for Strategic Research asserted that Israeli
government plans to expand business ties with China harms the Jewish state's
relationship with the West, particularly Washington. The report, authored by
former Mossad director Efraim Halevy, cited a proposal for China to help
build a railroad from central Israel to the southern port of Eilat.
