About the authors

Assaf Orion is a retired Israeli brigadier general and the head of the Diane and Guilford Glazer Foundation’s Israel-China Policy Center at Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies. He writes on Israel’s relations with China, its regional strategy, and more.

David Feith served as U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs. Before that, he was an editorial writer for The Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong..

Elliott Abrams is a senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations and is the chairman of the Tikvah Fund.

This month, Mosaic published a debate-defining essay on Israel’s relationship with China by Assaf Orion, a retired Israeli general. In it, Orion contends that recent concerns that Israel  might be getting too close with China may once have been valid but aren’t any longer: Israel’s ties with China are loosening, and if a new cold war is in the offing, Jerusalem won’t be on Beijing’s side.

To challenge Orion’s ideas and expand on them, Mosaic is convening a discussion on Tuesday, September 20 with Orion, the China expert David Feith, and the foreign-policy veteran and regular Mosaic writer Elliott Abrams. They’ll be moderated by the Middle East expert Jonathan Schachter. Sign up below and join them at noon Eastern on Tuesday, September 20 for a live Zoom briefing.
