The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
L: "For the Israelis, security and the strategic depth to ensure that safety is non-negotiable at the best of times" Dekel: "And when we look at the maps, in the end we evaluate the borders on the basis of how many residents we will not have to move from their homes and the defensible borders issue becomes of secondary importance." Or, put another way, Israel says it wants one thing, but then demands something else. You accept the rationalization, and that blinds you to the reality of Israel's ambition. Which Dekel is telling you is "colonial expansionism", rather than "strategic depth".
