'There’s a unique place of pique for the Israelis in certain places in the administration' hovering over negotiations, expert tells New York Times.08:55 29.04.16 | 0 comments
Howdy Ahmad; It would be savage (and illegal under international law) to cut off humanitarian aid in the form of water, food, and medicine because those are essential to life. However, it would not be illegal to cut off electricity, petroleum, raw materials, manufactured goods, etc. to the enemy during a period of armed conflict because they are not essential to life (people have lived for millenia without that stuff). In fact, it is common practice during a war for one side to impose an economic blockade on the other if they can do so. Israel doesn't get any power from Egypt. Where did you get that from? I think that Israel is self-sufficient in natural gas (there are adequate gas fields in the eastern Mediterranian which she exploits) and she gets her crude oil from non-Arab, oil-exporting countries like Norway or Nigeria. Israel has her own oil refineries and generates her own electricity.
