Israel accused of selling US secrets to China | ISRAEL has sold at least dollars 2bn ( pounds 1.3bn) to dollars 3bn of hi-tech military equipment to China, seriously undermining US efforts to limit the sale of advanced weapons to the Chinese. A Senate report due out later this week says the Israeli exports include military technology developed by the US, and which Washington expressly forbids from being exported to China. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/israel-accused-of-selling-us-secrets-to-china-1510406.html
‘Trump Will Be Furious’: Tension Between U.S. and Israel Over China Infrastructure Projects | Tightening Israel-China ties have not yet reached Trump’s desk, but one U.S. official warns he will not take to it kindly
Donald Trump has other burning problems on his mind, but sooner or later, the expanding economic ties between China and Israel will inevitably attract the American president’s attention as well. The current administration’s paranoia about China’s moves around the world and fear over losing the trade war to Beijing have pushed events in East Asia to the top of Washington’s agenda.
Two months ago, Haaretz reported that, at a conference with their Israeli counterparts, retired American admirals warned that Washington was simply astonished at Israel’s decision to award major infrastructure projects, including the construction of a civilian port in Haifa, to Chinese companies. Somebody even suggested that the U.S. Sixth Fleet might steer clear of the Israel Navy base in Haifa because of the Chinese involvement in building a civilian port there.
Based on conversations with ministers and other top officials, it now turns out that the Israelis were amazed at the intensity of their American counterparts’ ire on the matter. “They blew up at us,” said one of the Israelis who attended the meetings.
The Americans asked Israel for guarantees that China wouldn’t be able to take advantage of projects in Israel to improve its strategic standing and its intelligence capabilities. They remained unconvinced that Israel’s answers were good enough – and said if Israel couldn’t provide the guarantees they wanted, that would be grounds to have Israel reconsider its project contracts with China. https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-trump-officials-furious-at-israel-over-chinese-infrastructure-projects-1.6636151

Israel’s Chinese Takeaway: Security Takes a Backseat to High-tech and Economics | Relations between Israel and China are warming up, with Jerusalem believing the U.S. is unlikely to take issue if exports of advanced military tech is kept out of the picture https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-israel-s-chinese-takeaway-security-takes-a-backseat-to-high-tech-and-economics-1.6593878
[BBC 2018] Unlikely partners? China and Israel deepening trade ties | “So while President Trump is slapping tariffs on Chinese exports and talking tough, Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu is happily encouraging his country’s firms to accept Chinese investments, as the figures show.
In 2016 China’s direct investment in Israel almost tripled to $16bn (£12bn), according to a report in the South China Morning Post newspaper.
Meanwhile, the Jerusalem Post predicts that China will overtake the US as the number one source of overseas investment in Israel. …
The Pentagon is increasingly worried that artificial intelligence capabilities acquired by Chinese firms through civilian investments or licensing deals could find their way into a new generation of Chinese weapons that would threaten American troops and American allies.
“The Pentagon is also worried that Israel could become a back door through which China could acquire capabilities that it could not get in the US due to regulatory scrutiny.
“…If an American pilot were ever shot down by a Chinese missile powered by Israeli technology, it would be a real problem for the Israeli government.”
The Israeli government declined to comment on these security and defence sector issues. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-44697662

Haaretz 9/15/2018: Israel Is Giving China the Keys to Its Largest Port – and the U.S. Navy May Abandon Israel | China will operate Haifa port, near Israel’s alleged nuclear-armed submarines, and it seems no one in Israel thought about the strategic ramifications
“Shaul Horev dropped a bombshell, but hardly anyone noticed. Horev, an Israel Defense Forces reservist brigadier general who has served, among other posts, as the navy chief of staff and chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, is currently director of the Research Center for Maritime Policy and Strategy at the University of Haifa. At the end of August, the center held a conference, to which participants from the United States were invited, to examine security issues relating to Israel and the Mediterranean region.
In an interview with the religious-Zionist media outlet Arutz Sheva, Prof. Horev noted that one topic that came up at the event was Chinese investments in Mediterranean ports, and in Israel in particular. Pointing out that a Chinese company will soon start operating Haifa Port …
“When China acquires ports,” Horev said, “it does so under the guise of maintaining a trade route from the Indian Ocean via the Suez Canal to Europe, such as the port of Piraeus in Greece. Does an economic horizon like this have a security impact? We are not weighing that possibility sufficiently. One of the senior American figures at the conference raised the question of whether the U.S. Sixth Fleet can see Haifa as a home port. In light of the Chinese takeover, the question is no longer on the agenda.”…
The Haifa conference was held in conjunction with the conservative Washington-based Hudson Institute. Several of the American participants were former senior Pentagon and navy personnel. The remarks of the senior figure Horev quoted were sharper than the polite tone he used. The Americans who were at the conference think Israel lost its mind when it gave the Chinese the keys to Haifa Port. Once China is in the picture, they said, the Israel Navy will not be able to count on maintaining the close relations it has had with the Sixth Fleet.
The Chinese company SIPG won the bid to expand the Haifa Port three and a half years ago. The project is slated to be inaugurated in 2021 and calls for the Chinese company, which also operates the Port of Shanghai, to run the Haifa Port for 25 years. Another Chinese firm won the bid to build a new port at Ashdod. …
The problem lies not only in the implications that ties with the Chinese have for Israel’s relations with the United States, which under the Trump administration is ramping up its rhetoric on China because of the trade wars and tensions in the China Sea.
The civilian port in Haifa abuts the exit route from the adjacent navy base, where the Israeli submarine fleet is stationed (and which, according to foreign media reports, maintains a second-strike capability to launch nuclear missiles). As with Chinese involvement in other huge Israeli infrastructure projects – such as the Mount Carmel tunnels and the light-rail train in Tel Aviv – it seems as though no one involved in the security or diplomatic arenas even stopped to think through the strategic consequences of these moves.
China is acquiring vast influence over essential infrastructures in Israel and, indirectly, also a closer look at some of Israel’s military capabilities.“
Jerusalem Post 9/13/2018: IDF’s Home Front Command to train Chinese troops in emergency rescue | Home Front Command has trained with international partners for years, including Indiana’s National Guard.
“After six years of training with United States National Guard troops in Indiana, Israel’s Home Front Command may soon be on its way to China to train troops in emergency rescue scenarios.
“The plan is to put the Home Front Command in other places and not just the US,” Col. Dr. Olga Polyakov, chief surgeon of the Home Front Command told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.
“We just got the invite to go to China, and we are now starting to plan for it,” she said, explaining that troops will most likely teach the Chinese how to deal with emergency scenarios like earthquakes.
The Home Front Command’s medical department is unique in that it has twin roles. It is responsible for providing medical treatment to all troops in the command, and as well is responsible for preparing all civilian medical centers in the country for emergency scenarios including war.
Earthquake-prone China recently installed an Israeli-made earthquake prediction system which measures the ground 500 times per second, processing it in real-time and alerting control centers to warn civilians when an earthquake is detected. To minimize infrastructure damage, the system can order the closure of gas pipelines, power turbines and petrochemical plants, and halt rail traffic.”
[Calcalist 2018] Former Israeli Chief Scientist Avi Hasson to Raise A $100 Million Israeli Fund in China | During his six-year tenure as the manager of the Israeli government innovation fund, Hasson made many efforts to advance and build Israeli-Chinese relations
“During his six-year tenure as the manager of the Israeli government innovation fund, Hasson—now replaced by Aharon Aharon, the former head of Apple Israel—made many efforts to advance and build Israeli-Chinese relations. Ollech was his chief of staff and advisor from 2011 until 2015, when he left the public sector and set up Tel Aviv-based Emerge, an early stage venture capital firm. …
The first Emerge fund raised $30 million in 2016 mainly from Chinese backers, including state-owned China Merchants Group, which has around $1 trillion in assets under management; Wu Yongming, co-founder and senior vice president of corporate development at Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.; Xu Xiaoping (Bob Xu), founder of ZhenFund, established jointly with Sequoia Capital China in 2011 and managing over $600 million in assets; and Zhang Ying (David Zhang), founding managing partner at Matrix Partners China (Jingwei China). All have committed to the new fund as well. …
Emerge I’s portfolio includes Israel-based autonomous driving simulation company Cognata Ltd., which announced a partnership in June with autonomous Intelligent Driving GmbH (AID), a Munich-based subsidiary of German automaker Audi AG; website personalization company Dynamic yield Ltd.; Tel Aviv-based cybersecurity startup Axonius; and software debugging startup Rookout Ltd. Another one of its portfolio companies was Israeli big data firm Crosswise Ltd., acquired in 2016 by Oracle. …
The potential in China is enormous, but Israeli entrepreneurs have no idea how to approach the Chinese market, said Ollech in an interview with Calcalist last week. “These processes take time, but that’s the direction the world is going,” he said. “Something very big is going to happen, (in China),” he noted.
China has moved from a focus on inner growth to a more global focus that necessitates outside companies and technology, such as can be found in Israel, Ollech said.
“Israeli startups take a well-traveled path: if you’re successful, you move to the U.S. until someone buys you. I realized that to break that, I needed to connect to leading people who will be able to invest their own money and also offer a unique geographical point of view,” Ollech explained his decision to focus on China.
“We have a hold in Europe and the U.S., but Israel must continue to penetrate Asia,” Hasson explained.” https://www.calcalistech.com/ctech/articles/0,7340,L-3743083,00.html

In China, Pushing the Talmud as a Business Guide | [T]he apparent affection for Jewishness has led to a surprising trend in publishing over the last few years: books purporting to reveal the business secrets of the Talmud that capitalize on the widespread impression among Chinese that attributes of Judaism lead to success in the financial arts.
Titles such as Crack the Talmud: 101 Jewish Business Rules, The Illustrated Jewish Wisdom Book, and Know All of the Money-Making Stories of the Talmud share the shelves with stories of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates. There’s even a Talmud hotel in Taiwan inspired by “the Talmud’s concept of success” that features a copy of the book Talmud Business Success Bible in every room. With the increasing interest in business education in China, and a rise in sales of self-help literature, the production of business guides to the Talmud has exploded. The guides are like the Chinese equivalents of books such as Sun Tzu and the Art of Business. http://www.newsweek.com/china-pushing-talmud-business-guide-69075

[Via Bridget] “Oslo peace accords were not about peace (we all know that), it was about opening up trade with China” | China everywhere | China’s open door policy and the Oslo Peace Accords freed Beijing and Jerusalem to develop trade relations. Within a matter of decades, Chinese investment in Israel had increased substantially: in 1992, when full diplomatic relations were established, Chinese investments stood at US $50 million. By 2016, this figure had risen to US $16.5 billion.
Chinese investors have bought into the Israeli high-tech sector, formed joint ventures, hosted a trade conference and managed construction projects in Israel, including port and tunnel building. This trade relationship is likely to improve further, as Chinese investors adopt a cautious approach to investment in the United States due to President Trump’s anti-Chinese rhetoric.
Israeli politicians are very much in favour of improving relations with the East Asian power, as Israeli Economic Minister Eli Cohen said in September. Israeli companies also welcome Chinese investment, as there is concern that Trump’s tax reform would require Israeli start-ups to either register as US entities, or move some of their operations to the US in order to become eligible for tax rebates. https://www.aspi.org.au/opinion/china-everywhere

“It was in the 1930s that Rittenberg rejected a career as a lawyer and became a trade union and civil rights activist. He then went a little further. He became a communist, learnt Chinese, went to China, joined Mao Zedong’s guerrillas fighting Chiang Kai-shek’s nationalists, emerged after the communist victory as a senior party member close to Mao, ran Radio Peking, translated Mao’s thoughts into English, became a leading rabble rouser in the Cultural Revolution – and, by the by, was imprisoned for 16 years in solitary confinement, accused of being a US spy. Then he came back to the US and made a fortune advising American companies on how to get into China.”

“The Rothschild family businesses can trace their first contact with China to the 1830s. Our business was one of the first Western business institutions to re-establish relations after 1953.”
Solomon Adler (or Sol Adler) [Jewish] was born in Britain and became a U.S. citizen in 1936, when he obtained employment in the United States Department of the Treasury. Adler also was a Soviet spy who supplied information to the Silvermaster espionage ring.
Adler served in China and shared a house with Chi Ch’ao ting and “China hand” John Service. From China, Adler sent back reports opposing President Franklin Roosevelt‘s gold loan program of $200 million to help the Nationalist Chinese Government stabilize its currency in 1943. Secretary Harry Dexter White and Frank Coe supported this view (to de-stabilize the anti-Communist government of Chiang Kai-Shek). Hyperinflation in China amounted to more than 1000% per year between 1943 and 1945, weakening the standing of the Nationalist government domestically in China. This helped the Communists eventually to come to power in China, delivering hundreds of millions of people into their hands.
Adler is referenced in Venona decrypts #14, 14 January 1945, New York to Moscow. His code name in Soviet intelligence and in the Venona papers is “Sachs”, and directly relates to the delivery of information about China.
By 1950, Adler was the subject of a Loyalty of Government Employee investigation. Adler resigned just prior to a decision by the Civil Service Commission and Treasury Department. Thereafter, Adler returned to Britain, and when his passport expired in three years, he was denaturalized and lost his American citizenship.
At some point in the 1950s Adler emigrated to the People’s Republic of China. Adler, Frank Coe, and Sydney Rittenberg worked together in China translating Chairman Mao‘s works into English. He worked for twenty years for the Chinese Communist Party’s Central External Liaison Department, an agency involved in foreign espionage. A photograph shows him with Henshen Chen, a senior Maoist official who had been an intelligence operative in the United States from the late 1930s till 1949. Chen wrote in his memoirs that he used the cover as an editor for the journal Pacific Affairs and worked as a researcher at the Institute of Pacific Relations, and had covert liaisons with the Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA). https://www.conservapedia.com/Solomon_Adler
Israel-China Arms Trade: Unfreezing Times
Shoul Eisenberg, 76, Developer Of Israel’s International Trade | He pioneered Israel’s trade relations with China and was to have returned to Tel Aviv this week  to meet with China’s Minister of Transport.
“One of the key players in the Israel-South African nuclear weapons research was Israeli arms smuggler Shaul Eisenberg, the head of the Israel Corporation and a provider of military hardware to China, North Korea, and the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. Eisenberg, whose Wikipedia entry has been re-written by Israeli propagandists, controlled Israel Aircraft Industries and Zim Israel Navigation Shipping Company. Eisenberg was able to provide needed nuclear weapons components from Operation Phoenix to China and two of its major allies, North Korea and Pakistan.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/israeli-spy-was-central-cog-in-nuclear-weapons-proliferation-alliance/5320780
“There were also significant business dealings with the late billionaire and leading arms dealer Shaul Eisenberg, who had brokered a sale in Gerald Bull’s Space Research Corporation for South Africa’s state owned arms manufacturing company, Armscor. Eisenberg happened to be a high level MOSSAD operative and a key figure in Israel’s nuclear development programs, though his primary role had been to secure Israeli interests in China dating back to the Cold War. Eisenberg, (whose Wikipedia entry is periodically re-written by Israeli propagandists) also “… controlled Israel Aircraft Industries and Zim Israel Navigation Shipping Company” according to intelligence journalist Wayne Madsen, and “… was able to provide needed nuclear weapons components from Operation Phoenix to China and two of its major allies, North Korea and Pakistan.” 
His financial enabler and fellow agent was banker Tibor Rosenbaum, head of the Geneva based Banque du Credit international (BCI)  which during the late fifties and sixties was actively involved in laundering money from the criminal empire of Meyer Lansky. Like Rosenbaum, Lansky was a fierce Zionist. His financial contributions to the “cause” ensured his protection from the MOSSAD. Tibor Rosenbaum funded and supported Eisenberg giving the tycoon enormous financial leverage and covert influence over global business politics.  The corporations and companies owned by Eisenberg and now under his son Erwin’s control include: Iron Mt Recordkeeping, Iron Mtn mining, Rotron, Wackenhut, Israel Chemicals, Eisenberg Industries of Israel, Permindex, Legacy foundation of Nevada, Eisenberg Satellite and Telecom.”
“Nissim is not just an older partner with the Harel brothers, he is one of the key players in the 9/11 false-flag terrorism with other members of the Betar (Zionist militia) from China. Shaul Eisenberg, Mossad’s mega-agent in China and Japan, was also involved with the Betar brigades in China in the 1930s and 40s. Eisenberg is the smoking gun between these Betar Likudniks from China and 9/11. Eisenberg owned Atwell, a Mossad company that tried to get the security contract for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (World Trade Center, airports, harbors, tunnels, etc.) in 1987.”

In the 1990s, Israel was hoping to make its own domestic fighter jet that could compete on the international market. It required assistance from US companies and ended up making the IAI Lavi, a fighter that heavily resembled the F-16.
After it was discovered that up to $1.3 billion of US aid to Israel was spent on the development of the Lavi, and that the US was essentially funding a potential competitor, the project was canceled.
The plans for the fighter were then said to have been sold to China. Some US government officials even believed that Israel and China were collaborating with each other to develop the fighter. http://www.businessinsider.com/china-j-10-fighter-jet-getting-more-stealth-2018-4

Ex-Israeli chief scientist helping Guangzhou jumpstart its tech ecosystem | Yehoshua Gleitman has already set up a Chinese-Israeli investment fund in the city, the most populous in Guangdong province
The municipal government of Guangzhou, formerly known as Canton, the most populous city in the province of Guangdong in southern China, is seeking to create a startup ecosystem for companies in very early stages of development and is partnering with a former chief scientist of Israel to help recreate the startup nation’s success locally.
The local authorities are seeking to turn the city into a tech powerhouse and a knowledge-based economy with international influence by 2020, and are stepping up efforts to boost innovation in a variety of sectors, including information technology (IT), biotechnology, new materials and energy. …
As China, the world’s second-largest economy shifts its identity from a manufacturing and labor-intensive economy to a high-end innovative force, Asian giants including Alibaba Group, Hutchison Water Ltd., and Huawei have set up R&D centers, invested in funds and snapped up Israeli startups and companies. Israel sees China as a strategic partner and a key country for economic cooperation and has allocated to the East Asian giant six Israeli trade missions — more than to any other country. …
The new collaboration is an extension of an existing partnership between Gleitman, a group of Israeli entrepreneurs and the Guangzhou Municipal Government, which in 2016 set up the Guangzhou-Israel Sino Bio-industry Investment Fund (GIBF).
The 600 million RMB fund (some $100 million) seeks to invest and promote the establishment of Chinese subsidiaries of Israeli companies that are active in the biomedical field. The Israeli-Chinese subsidiaries, registered and set up in the Guangzhou Development District, have full exclusive rights to the intellectual property of the Israeli parent company and total freedom of operation in China.
The fund’s strategy is to establish Chinese subsidiaries in which the Israeli company holds a majority stake. As a result, the Israeli company benefits from all the value created in China and not only from proceeds or royalties on sales by a local partner, agent or distributor, as is often the case when entering the Chinese market, Gleitman explained. https://www.timesofisrael.com/ex-israeli-chief-scientist-helping-guangzhou-jumpstart-its-tech-ecosystem/
