China Arms Sales to MidEast
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
China has increased its sales of weapons to the Middle East. This past year they sold 13 billion in arms sales.
That is an increase from 1.4 billion in the 2010. That means that China is one of the most significant arms dealers in the region.
This worries Israel for many reasons. Other than the sheer quantity of the weapons - most worrisome is that China has no limits when it comes to weapons sales. There are no checks and balances on their sales.
Another major worry is that this influx of weapons to the region including to Iran will alter the status quo and lend support to parties and governments that are true enemies of Israel.
This new Chinese weapons position ultimately confirms the reality that China is not trustworthy in the region.
