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
The blockade is indeed inhumane. What I can't believe is that we, as a world community, continue to stand back and watch. For all the hand-wringing in Europe and the USA you would think that we were actually interested in a resolution. However, the basic fact remains that Israel can do no other than what it is allowed to do. It survives on the support of both the US and EU for aid and trade. The sad reality is that we must be happy to see it continue.
