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
I agree with both of you that this is a extreme move. I am familiar with what the torah says and you are right I suppose but I think Iran's true facilities are deep in Iran's territory and also deep in underground bunkers that are unseen by sattelite and too deep for even bunker busters (assuming we knew where they were). The question is whether we are at war with Iran? If we are nations fight wars by crippling each other's economy. Tourism was key for Israel and Iran backed terrorist and Iranian equipment deprived Israel of one of its few revenues. I do not see the difference. In terms of Oil market? Well we should get off oil dependence anyway and perhaps Israel could strike the fields as that the explosions prevent fires but destroy the wells? If Iran is trying truly to get nukes and has threatened to use them against Israel than why should Israel wait for Iran to get them?
