    I thought Israel was smarter than this. China does not love Israel accept for what they can get from them. I always say “Be careful what you wish for”. Money isnt everything, when your life is in the balance.

    so it would seem that india doesn’t have the same “buy american” constraints as the yankees, and they just buy “normally” based on price, quality, and availability.

    curiously, for all their supposed support for “free markets”, it seems that americans really don’t like competition, and they see israel as competition.

    GOD DOES NOT REPEAT BUT THE VIOLENT REPEAT COMES FROM ANOTHER TO FINALLY EXCEPT IT. GOD IS NOT ALONE. MANY IMAGES MADE ONLY ONE GOD AND GODS INVENTED. ONLY ORIGINAL IS GOD AND IMAGES MADE AFTER.

    A slight error, a missing word confused the meaning of the headline, David: It should have read “…Three Times Higher Than To North America”. One could understand ” three times higher than North America’s sales to Asia Pacific”.
