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.03:48 31.08.15 | 0 comments
This is Israel's traditional answer, -a slap in the face for any US or UN official who dares suggest Israel must honor obligations from existing peace agreements like the Road Map. I wish Mr Rajoub and the Palestinians success, but I worry that US President Obama will never apply the kind of force that will be required to actually move criminal Jewish settlers out of occupied territory. History has shown that Israel does not honor it's word in peace agreements, instead expecting to receive the benifits without making the concessions it signed off on. Hamas claims Israel only reacts to force, and Israel's behavior seems to confirm this assertion. So where is Obama's stick? We have seen him use the stick against every Arab state in the region. If Obama can apply sanctions against Iran and bomb Libya, why can't he apply the same force against Israel?
