ISRAEL, INDIA, CHINA, AND AWACS

ISRAEL, INDIA, CHINA, AND AWACS

There's more confirmation coming in that China is being isolated by the major movers and shakers, and this time its Israel that is refusing to sell the Communist country sensitive military technology, according to this article shared by L.G.L.R.:

Israel Won't Sell AWACS to China, But Agrees to Sell Them to India

As the article notes, Israel and China have a history of military cooperation with Israel being a major arms supplier to that country:

Politics has always made for strange bedfellows and among the strangest have been those between the State of Israel and the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Israel was the first country in the Middle East to recognize the PRC as the legitimate government of China, but it wasn’t until 1992 that China established normal diplomatic relations with Israel. Both countries have been known to largely ignore each other’s reported human rights violations, but yet China is one of the few nations in the world to concurrently maintain warm relations with Israel and Palestine as well as the Muslim world at large.

The two countries’ military cooperation goes back to the 1980s, and Israel ranks second only to Russia as a weapons system provider to China.

As I've been arguing lately, however, China's flooding problems, which have led to some severe stresses on its agriculture and industry, combined with American trade deals and with what appear to be some internal factional fissures within the Chinese Communist Party Politburo itself, may have forced Xi Jinping to "lash out" and provoke the recent border clash with India. Whatever the reasons for that clash, the diplomatic and geopolitical fallout from that clash have been a disaster for China, as India reacted swiftly to mend fences with other allies, and in an unprecedented move, requested American troops for the region of the Chinese  incursion.

These events have led me to speculate in recent weeks that we might be seeing the quiet formation of a "quadruple entente", something less than a formal system of alliances, but something more than just agreement that Communist China has become a problem that has to be dealt with. Russia, for example, has recently stalled delivery of its S4o0 surface to air missile defense system to that country amid accusations of Chinese espionage against that country, and outright theft of its military technologies. Japan, we know, has engaged diplomatically with Russia under Shinzo Abe over a broad range of economic cooperation issues, and has recently offered to help fund the infrastructure rebuild necessary for the USA to reopen its large naval base in Subic Bay, the Philippines.

Now Israel has added insult to injury by refusing to sell its own AWACS system to China, while approving its sale to India, which already has purchased a number of the Israeli system:

Israel has refused to sell its Phalcon Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft to China—but Jerusalem has announced that a long-stalled deal to sell the early warning aircraft to India is still now moving forward. India has previously acquired three of the aircraft in 2004 and the Indian cabinet has sought for years to approve two more.

According to Harinder Mishra, a journalist living in Jerusalem, the long-stalled deal is a part of a $2 billion worth purchase agreement between India and Israel. This could occur under an agreement in which India and Israel would jointly manufacture arms supplies and defense equipment. Mishra reportedly said that the AWACS in service with the Indian military have been used to monitor Pakistani airspace and this includes the land around Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

There's also, according to the article, another two factors weighing in the background:

It was also reported that twenty years ago Washington applied pressure on Israel to nix a sale of its AWACS to China, as it was out of fear the spy plane could give China a strategic advantage over America’s AWACS aircraft in any conflict involving Taiwan.

That acted as a serious dent in Israel-China ties, and while Beijing has tried to establish closer ties, the government in Jerusalem cannot afford to weaken its ties with the United States. Now the fact that Israel will sell the aircraft to India but not to China could likely further cool the relations between Jerusalem and Beijing.

One other factor to consider is that China already operates its own AWACS, which it developed after the 2001 deal to buy the Israel platform was canceled. As a result, it is unclear why it was interested in the Israeli version, except to have access to foreign military technology.

In other words, those two factors are Taiwan, and the Chinese practice of buying technology, reverse engineering it, and producing its own versions. This is, in fact, how China has emerged as a major military power over the past few decades, from its purchase, reverse engineering, and modifications of Russian rocket technology for its space program, to its use of essentially western technology as the seed for its computer chip industry. More recently, we've seen the attempted theft of biowarfare technology from Canada, and the arrest of Harvard's Dr. Charles Lieber for allegedly not disclosing his financial relationship to China - via its laboratory in Wuhan - to federal authorities.

Israel's turnabout is not accidental, and in my opinion, signals that my "quadruple entente" idea may be gaining traction, the test, now, will be how the Japanese Liberal Democrat Party moves to fill the vacancy of retiring Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Israel refused to sell EL/W-2090/2095 to China way back in 2003 itself.

    And Israel AEW&CS is already in use with Indian Air Force
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EL/W-2090

    Just India was building its own AEW&CS based on A330, that’s why the Indian govt was stalling to sign a new contract for AEW&CS with Israel.

  2. Norwegians have been Nazi hunting their neighbors, and for that there will be rivers of blood, towards a red ocean.

    Should one distinguish between good and bad Norwegians? No, there is only one category in war, and that is the enemy.

    Women and children do not run fast, so they are easy targets. Besides, what is the point, in having a jolly killer instinct?

    1. In 2015, I told the secret police in Norway, that the original kingship, by Ryne-Stafas, was an executioner.

      Then I said, that I do not mind doing the chop chop, in the butcher shop.

      Then I said, that I gladly place my own head on the scaffold.

      Because we go together!

      ARTHUR

      Fiercest of warfare beheld dragon head,
      repelling invasion of homestead,
      and heart fell to ground,
      when he found,
      that all his sons lay dead.

      While king broke waves on eternal shore,
      cuckold betrayal closed his door,
      and queen would not last
      with curse cast,
      in broken mirror on floor.

      God’s revengeful heart is a sacred thing,
      when making last stand as king,
      and Arthur’s dogs of war
      tore queen apart,
      so that banshees might sing.

  3. [ off topic] The Chinese, and their western accomplices have a lot to answer for, my wrecked Dewalt electric chainsaw for a starters, got it back today, they wont cover it under warranty as I ‘tampered’ with it (I used it for ripping for 10 min quite excellently)… and I paid to get it posted back… opened it up (now that I can tamper with it) to find oiled sawdust inside it, which probably blew the motor which doesn’t apparently have safeguards. my bad, I thought it was made in Germany/Italy , the handle says otherwise. just you wait Mr Lee Chiggins, just you wait. Is China confident on taking on he world like the Germans did (though really didnt)?

  4. An approaching storm that dragon makes. The more they plunder, replicate, and rebuild in Chinese characteristics from stolen designs the more they reveal their strategy to defeat an adversary with their own attributes. They may not allow the freedom of expression within the confines of the Party’s dominion, but they make particularly good use of western affiliates with the greatest of the media’s ease. Such lethal flattery by the Party hasn’t gone unnoticed for decades. Now, one question might lurk just below the surface of revelation, “What action(s) will be noted as a result of such bold maneuvers in the open?” That thousand talent’s list was also on the early warning RADAR where it mattered.

  5. These shenanigans dated back to the post-Norman conquest of England. Always creating chaos on mainland Europe but for the last 400 to 500 years it has gone global. As for Chinese behavior my I recommend a book from the 70s The Chinese Machiavelli.

    China’s simply going to have to pay more on the black market. Israel’s Russians know a thing or two about that; and probably have quite a few contacts, developed over decades.[read your first sentence].
    Not to mention their recent history in arm deals.[I see your going there in historical detail].
    Yes. Instead of look what’s going on here in Damn China; look at what India just did!
    What concerns myself is: NWO objectives in China. Whatever the NWO wants? I’m against it!

    Ouch!
    WWII set up w/Germany versus Russia being updated … w/China versus India?

    1. Speaking of which, this was interesting:
      https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/escobar-india-implodes-its-own-new-silk-road

      The ‘beating the drums’ against China started about the time Trump was inaugurated. Seeing all the dual-citizens and dual-citizen wannabees around Trump, I would pin the anti-China rhetoric ultimately on the backers of Israel. Whether the Rothschilds-and-up are actually afraid of the growing power of China or this is an elaborate global “Phoenician Navy” (from Miles Mathis) plan, I have no idea. But Israel would be expected to play their part…

      1. Robert Barricklow

        Good article Goshawks; especially, at the end in the trading currencies between Iran & India w/o the dollar. There then is the crux of the policies being fashioned
        Include the dollar.
        Or, else.

    2. Then there’s this from Sept. 7: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/india-test-fires-nextgen-hypersonic-weapon-border-tensions-china-surge
      In which we learn India announced it “‘successfully flight tested’ a domestic hypersonic technology demonstrator vehicle (HSTDV) for the first-time. . . . Defense minister Rajnath Singh congratulated [the agency in charge] for the ‘successful’ launch of the HSTDV, describing the advanced engine technology as a scramjet propulsion system.”

  7. One has to wonder why it took till now for the world to wake up to the CCP’s business model. They require access to proprietary information for any company operating on their shores, send their students abroad to learn at Western universities, embedding them within sensitive programs, only to have them return with the knowledge they have learned for their benefit or steal it outright.
    This was baked into the cake from the outset and should have been realized much sooner. This was accomplished intentionally by those who plan ahead over long periods of time. Why snatch the carrot off the stick at a time when China is suffering catastrophic flooding, locust swarms, and a viral outbreak? Could it be to foment a war leading to the great reset?
    In order to build a New World Order, one must tear down the Old World Order. One must bring the world to the brink of annihilation in order to have its inhabitants request and accept that New Order for their perceived survival.
    Such a plan would have to be carried out with the utmost caution least it backfire and consume those doing the planning along with the rest of us.

    1. > why it took till now for the world to wake up to the CCP’s business model.<
      It's been understood for a long time. The Clintons were early on receiving money from the Chinese for Whitehouse favors, the Democratic party is infested with people whose careers and finances benefit from that infestation and Chinese money.
      One way of understanding this "Russia thing" is that it diverts attention from China.

    2. As ragiza said, I’d say it’s been understood for a long time. In general, China is the model society to the Western oligarchs: total surveillance and tracking, social credit, one-party rule, top-down control, no individual rights, no business liability, slave labor, no need to waste resources on keeping up appearances of democracy. I mean, it’s their wet dream! So it is weird how China is suddenly persona non grata.

      It might be the Hitler/Stalin story all over again: Western financial elite sets up a regime for its own purposes, like Warburg financed Lenin and Anglo-American oligarchs backed Hitler. Then, once the new regime grows powerful enough, it gets out of their control and runs wild, like Hitler, Stalin, and now Xi.

  8. VATICAN OCTOPUS

    Pope Nero-Caligula sucks many lands,
    with his octopus shake hands,
    and by Jesuit entangle
    he will strangle,
    by tentacles and ink glands.

  9. That tenured professor from Hahvaad has been right off the radar lately; perhaps he has been attending singing lessons…

    1. Robert Barricklow

      Loved it!

      Does he first sing about what happened in sanctuary?
      Then publicly sings the latest NWO hymn[s] worldwide?

    2. Maybe a little too high-octane here, but what if the Hahvaad guy was an agent working against, not for, China? Imagine: China gets wind of it (after a release of something in Wuhan by Western troops?); U.S. “arrests” Mr. Hahvaad to keep him safe; suitable cover story put out in the press; whole thing then kept quiet.
