From the current print edition of The Economist (p49): 'Israel, too, courts China because of its potential influence (in the Middle East). China shares its distaste for Islamic militancy. And despite China's close ties with Arab countries and Iran, Israel (to America's chagrin) sees China as an important market for its military industries. Last week China unveiled a new home-built advanced fighter jet, the Jian-10. Western military experts believe it incorporats Israeli (as well as Russian) technology.' Sorry, don't have a hyperlink. Is Israel hedging its long-term bets????
