  1. #1: Indeed, the Chinese are smart people. Getting in with the Israelis will allow their intelligence apparatus deeper access into Western technology and economy, and enhance their cyberwar capabilities.

    Most of China’s recent technological and economic development has been achieved through stealing intellectual property of the west, so thanks a lot Israel!

  2. Money is never free there are always attachments to this gift. I hope Israel didn’t sell the store also with this free gift.
