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
Lieberman's comments are clearly extortion. If the UN conducts its business per its charter and Israel doesnt like the result, Israel won't even pretend to try to make peace or comply with International law. Since Israel is already preventing meaningful peace efforts by continuing to brutalize and steal from Palestinians, who cares? Israel will never agree to a just peace until it is forced to do so by world divestment, boycotts and sanctions. Only by threatening its economy will anything be accomplished. All countries have the right to self defense, but that never jusifies deliberately brutalizing civilians.
