Witte said the response she generally got was that such a plan would upset China and the US too much, but she argued that Jerusalem “can take Chinese sensitivities into consideration” and formulate “a strategic plan that protects Israel on both sides.
“It is really incumbent upon Israel to share its view with Beijing that this is an opportunity,” she said.
 
A strategic plan is essential because so many other countries have become hopelessly entangled in too many Chinese investments.
Israel is less likely to fall prey to debt traps, a term referring to China extending excessive credit to another country and then using that debt for political leverage, but no country is without weaknesses. For example, the Israeli economy is so beholden to the tech sector that the government has tried to remove all the red tape for investments – to the point that Israel has left itself completely vulnerable.
