Knesset member Ayoob Kara, who is part of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, on Tuesday threatened that Israel is prepared to abandon America and ally with China and Russia if Biden “reneges on America’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and signs a nuclear deal with Iran.”
The public statement, which our media is refusing to report on, comes a little over one month after the US congress voted to pass a law mandating we send nearly $40 billion in aid to Israel over the next decade (even if, as Nancy Pelosi said, America “crumbles to the ground”).
“If the United States does not continue to recognize Israel’s sovereignty in the Golan Heights and drastically changes Trump’s Iran policy, Israel will have to consider building a stronger relationship with Russia and China,” Kara said, tweeting out a picture of himself with former US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.
“Till now, Israel has always considered American interests in relations to Russia and China,” Kara continued. “In the past, we even cancelled a major arms deal with China in order to appease the United States.”
“Yet if Biden reneges on America’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and signs a nuclear deal with Iran, a deal that endangers the existence and the security of the State of Israel, we must work to build stronger strategic ties to China and Russia, starting with the Haifa port deal.”
UPDATE: Haaretz reported on Thursday that “over 20 Israelis, including former employees of Israeli defense firms, have been investigated for illegally selling weapons to U.S. rival in Asia.”
“Most details of the investigation, including which country is involved, are under a gag order. Sources with knowledge of the investigation said the case was highly sensitive, as it could affect Israel’s foreign relations and lead to a crisis between superpowers,” Haaretz reported.
“According to a statement by Israel Police on Thursday, an investigation together with the Shin Bet security service found that the suspects ‘developed, manufactured, tested and sold armed loitering missiles to an Asian country.'”
