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
No peace offer is ever enough for Israel! Its leaders only disagree over how much of stolen Pal land they get to keep, whether it's 7.5% or 8.5% (and no doubt more under Netanyahu). They have no intention of returning stolen E J'sem, giving back much of the Area C land, vacating settlements, compensating refugees or permitting an independent Palestine. But you can't speak for Hamas!, they say with delight. So what, it's de facto a separate territory and a law unto itself, that's life. And you're setting preconditions! Nope, the roadmap sets the preconditions, the PA has added none. And you haven't recognised Israel as a Jewish state! Even if the PA was foolish enough to, that would come in the final status agreement, not as an Israeli precondition in Phase 1! And we don't trust you and... and... Israel never misses an opportunity to find a way to kick talks into the long grass, so that the illegal Eretz Israel enterprise can proceed at full steam ahead.
