China fears Israel will attack Iran

China Confidential is reporting that China's Middle East experts--including special envoy Sun Bigan--are said to be increasingly concerned that Beijing's non-Arab, nuclear arming, Islamist ally, Iran, could be going too far in its efforts to isolate and delegitimize Israel.
Sources say the Chinese fear that if Israel feels genuinely cornered, it could lash out against Iran with devastating preemptive military strikes that could in turn trigger a regional conflagration.
China is one of Iran's strongest supporters and allies.

Will this translate into a willingness to restrain Iran and/or support sanctions (or more) against it? I doubt it.
