    Spanning the last 20 years. Most of it's about backdoor transfer of American technology. There's a solid basis for the U.S. interference in Israel's arms deals with China. Israel receives a considerable amount of money and advanced weaponry from the U.S., as well as being privy to joint ventures in systems development and innovation. But it comes with the price of Israel's agreement not to pass these on to third countries, either directly or indirectly. Israel has been caught cheating on several occasions, which has led to tighter guidelines by the U.S. in order to protect its interests. That's what led to the U.S. ending Israel's deals with China. So if you or Israel don't like that idea, then you and Israel need to find yourselves someone else to screw over and profit from-if you can. Otherwise, best to suck it up and live with it. P.S.-China's interest in trading with Israel were most likely directly connected to that potential for obtaining U.S. technology-some of which they did in fact receive!
