Israel and China’s Silk Road

With BRI now at play, three implications and opportunities arise that transcend bilateral economic cooperation: infrastructural and trade interconnectivity, a closely-related “information Silk Road”, and Israel’s potential as mediator between the world’s two leading powers.

The nexus of infrastructure, transport and communications transmission routes paves the way for an unprecedented degree of interconnectivity embracing a community already exceeding 60 nations. China’s infrastructural footprint in Israel began with the Carmel Tunnels near Haifa in 2007, six years before BRI’s formal announcement. Yet, it is the projected “Med-Red” railway linking Eilat with Ashdod, reportedly to be constructed by China, that could transform Israel into a land bridge along the Maritime Silk Road.

OBOR on the Ground: Evaluating China’s “One Belt, One Road” Initiative at the Project Level

A massive infrastructure push is underway across Asia. The region’s infrastructure market could grow by 8 percent annually over the next decade, rising to nearly 60 percent of the global total. All told, the region’s infrastructure needs are estimated to exceed $1 trillion annually. China’s “One Belt, One Road” (OBOR) initiative is at the center of this push. Estimates vary, but all point toward an ambitious endeavor. Geographically, OBOR could span 65 countries responsible for roughly 70 percent of the world’s population. Economically, it could include Chinese investments approaching $4 trillion.

In my latest article I examine the destructive US foreign policy through the Hegelian Dialectic lens where the puppet masters and their neocon Pinocchio-nosed neocons have declared war on Islam, Russia, China and Iran. The war on Islam is simply using a few jihadist patsies with intelligence community handlers to carry out Western state sponsored terrorism around the world. This keeps the global masses in fear and more easily controlled, seeking protection from deep state. Also deploying US created and financed terrorists as US-Israel-NATO proxy war allies to destabilize first the Middle East and North Africa spreading to every corner of the globe is the other critical function groups like al Qaeda and ISIS serve the US Empire. This becomes a war on Islam because it unjustly and falsely blames Muslims for global violence and war when in fact it’s the ruling elite and their minions in Washington and Brussels who are the real perpetrators of crimes against humanity and the actual terrorists behind the terrorists.
