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
Israelis fear each other ..... orthodox Jews, secular Jews, gays, Palestinian Israelis, Haridim, liberal Jews, settlers that react with violence, Jews for peace, etc. They have a government leadership that panders to some of the most extreme factions. If there ever was a time to practice the age-old Judaic values of truth, justice and care for those least able to help themselves, this is the time. Diversity will remain and grow regardless of the resistance from fearful groups within Israel. Communications are immediate, international and accessible by the world. There is a growing disdain of actions that are directed towards destabilization; that punish whole communities for the actions of a few; that oppress and suppress; that deny human rights; and that leverage fears of the people. Israel can and should adapt to the realities of a changing world. Failure to do so will forever cripple Israel and further lower the world's esteem for Israel.
