    We have a major gas find but that doesn't make us a gas superpower who have got enough of the stuff to export worldwide. We should export about 30% its actually the only way to make money from the gas fields because the government isn't pocketing billions if its all staying at home for domestic use. The gas we export should not be peace making gas it should be for profit and to reliable countries. Cyprus most certainly and some other European countries but not muslim or arab ones. Withe the arabs you can bet that once we start selling gas they will start trying to stake a claim to it and we are going to end up fighting in the international courts to just keep our gas. If we decide we want to cut it off or just don't want to keep selling the stuff then they are going to start saying they rely on Israel's gas and so Israel has no right to cut it off. Arab & Muslim states cannot be trusted. We should also stop treating capitalists ( the people who bring investment into the country ) as evil tycoons because they can spend more money in a day that the average Israeli earns in a year and they have become scapegoats for our own economic problems. We should also remember its the big companies who have invested all the money into drilling for this gas the taxpayer has not invested a single shekel and they want to export gas so we cannot deny them that right just dictate how much of the stuff can be sold and who they cannot sell to.
