Here’s an easy one.
We love our Chinamen, don’t we folks?
The Jews are always making all these demands.
US Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer told Chinese President Xi Jinping in a rare meeting Monday that he was “very disappointed” by China’s failure to strongly condemn the recent Hamas attack on Israel and show sympathy for the country and its people.
Schumer is leading a delegation of six senators to China this week.
The delegation, which includes three Democrats and three Republicans, is the first visit by U.S. lawmakers since 2019 and comes at a time of growing attacks on China in Congress as America contends with Beijing’s rise as a global power.
“I urge you and the Chinese people to stand with the Israeli people and condemn these cowardly and vicious attacks,” said Schumer.
A Chinese Foreign Ministry statement on Sunday called on both sides to exercise restraint and immediately end the hostilities — but made no mention of the unprecedented Hamas surprise attack early Saturday that has left more than 1,100 dead in fighting so far and thousands wounded on both sides.
On Monday, Israeli soldiers were still fighting the militants to secure the border with Gaza.
In the ministry statement, China also said that establishing an independent state of Palestine is the fundamental way to resolve the issue.
“The recurrence of the conflict shows once again that the protracted standstill of the peace process cannot go on,” the statement said, adding that the international community needs to act with greater urgency and facilitate the sumption of peace talks.
Schumer met earlier with the head of China’s rubber stamp parliament and the country’s highest-ranking diplomat, Wang Yi, to whom he delivered the same statement about the recent violence.
Wang did not respond before journalists were escorted out of the room.
Everyone in the world is supposed to do a “poker face” at the fact that Schumer is ostensibly representing America, while very obviously representing Israel.
China is not interested in these sorts of games.
