A New Global Order? Israel’s Relations with China and Russia in Light of the War in Ukraine
Despite their mutual support throughout the first hundred days of the war, Russia and China continue to have competing interests. Whereas Israel needs to be more responsive to Washington's concerns about its two global competitors, it must also be mindful of populist calls to destabilize relations with Moscow and Beijing.
The Hong Kong National Security Law and its Implications for Middle Powers
In May 2021, an Israeli company became the first documented case of China imposing free expression limitations on a foreign business under the 2020 Hong Kong National Security Law. Democracies must ensure that their citizens are not prosecuted for exercising their basic rights.
China’s Alternative Vision for Gulf Security
Trump's Middle East peace plan and the recent Israel-Arab peace accords limit Chinese influence in the region. Countering this, China is advancing a collective security concept for the region based on the JCPOA. The US and Israel must stymie this Chinese gambit and reinforce the Abraham Accords.
China’s View of the Abraham Accords
China aims to play a more proactive role in the Middle East, maintaining cordial relations with all rival countries. Beijing attaches great importance to its ties with Saudi Arabia, the Emirates and Egypt, and therefore has welcomed the Abraham Accords (albeit in lukewarm fashion, because of tensions with the Trump administration).
China keen to step up in Mideast as US shifts attention to Indo-Pacific
Tuvia Gering: The Chinese “blitz” on the Middle East seeks to secure Arab-Muslim support for Chinese core interests and to fortify the “Chinese camp” in the face of the “anti-Chinese” faction led by the Biden administration.
Israel gives China a little taste of its own medicine at UN
Tuvia Gering: Chinese state-affiliated media, diplomats, CCP members and nationalist keyboard warriors have lashed out at Israel with anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist comments.
