US 'anger' at Israel weapons sale to China - AGAIN
The Israeli defence ministry has confirmed that it faced questioning by Washington over arms sales to China.
But the ministry denied media reports that the US had demanded the dismissal of a top official over the matter.
A statement from the Israeli defence ministry said arms exports to China were being clarified with US officials in what it called a good spirit.
The statement followed Israeli reports that the sale of a sensitive weapons system to China had angered Washington.
According to the reports it prompted American calls for the resignation of the defence ministry's director, Amos Yaron.
The head of the Israeli parliament's defence committee, Youval Steinitz, said tensions, hidden from the public, had appeared in the last few years over Israel's weapons sales to China.
"There has been a tightening of checks exercised by the US on Israeli weapons exports... we are very sensitive to US requirements," Mr Steinitz said.
Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz also denied the newspaper reports, while accepting that a dossier on Israeli weapons sales to China was "in the process of clarification".
Correspondents say the row risks adding to an atmosphere of suspicion between the Israel and the Pentagon.
It is Zionist strategy to ally themselves with superpowers since the beginning of time now the China seems to be the new superpower the Zionist loyalty might shift to China.

bro, u're wasting space because every nation in the world sells and trades weapons, food and raw materials. nothing new or exciting. US sold weapons to the now hated Osama bin Laden, as well as Saddam Hussein. big deal.

I find it funny so called "Americans" get so defensive when someone critizes Israel, that is too scary to me. you actually put the US down to support Israel, amazing.
you guys are crazy, you say "spying" against your own country is normal, selling arms to a competitor is normal, checkpoints are normal.

to me zionism and zionist influence is the greatest threat to america, and americas power. and terrorism to america comes because of our support of the zionist cause. i pray for a day in america in which zionism and its influence is totally erased from american politics.

Israel is not selling American made equipment. It's selling Israeli made equipment, and has the same rights to do so as any other country in the world.
Don't forget that Israel is still an independent country, and just as the US actions don't always meet Israel's interests, so do the Israeli actions not always meet the American interests.
