To this day, Israel is selling cutting edge radar to the Chinese, in addition to a whole bunch of other stuff.

At one point, we had to step in and forbid/cancel a done deal that an Israeli defense company had with the PLA.

Israel is NOT an ally in the same way Britain is. Israel is all about Israel, and would step over our dead body to maintain that status.

I will second that! One of my best friends for years feels the same way you do and she is Jewish. She doesn't consider Israel anymore her home than I do -- has religious significance for both of us as the land does for a lot of religions, but that is it. She thinks Pollard should stay in jail and throw away the key for being a spy!

Don't get it -- why would anyone support someone spying on the United States regardless of what Country they were spying for. An American spying should be locked up forever IMHO!

sorry for the delay, moving after 20 years in the same house.
You are absolutely correct but if you write that you usually get hammered buy someone for mentioning that Israel may ne be the most loyal of friends.

Which radar did Israel sell to China and when?

Source, please.

The US is moving all it's manufacturing overseas to China, so clearly Bush doesn't see them as a threat or he'd put the kibosh on it.

If Bush is OK with moving our manufacturing base to China, and you support Bush, why should you care what other countries sell them?

(Personally I think China is a serious threat to us in the future, but not now)
