    I would like to make the point that the delicate relationship between Israel and China is of critical importance for the next decade, and it pays well for the government of Israel to invest some energy into this. China is a strategic rival to the US, and has tended to perceive Israel in that context. As we shift from unipolar world back to a multi-polar world, Israel needs to make some critical adjustments in the way it positions itself in the world. Here are some of my realpolitik advice for the Israeli government: 1. Refrain from criticizing China over its human rights record. This might include demonstrating some 'sensitivity' towards Chinese government's 'concerns', and not voting with US in the General Assembly on issues of critical concerns to the Chinese. 2. Refrain from contacts with the Dalai Lama, even on an unofficial level. 3. Increase educational exchange with China. 4. Make the painful shift to full renewable energy and lessen dependence on oil.
