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
to answer your questions: Egypt and Israel have been at peace for decades, a staple of the Land for Peace idea. (The Israeli blockade of Gaza and the occasional ineffectual rocket have prevented any notion of peace to date in that scenario.) Other than that, what land has Israel returned to its rightful owners? The IDF were driven out of Lebanon twice, so that doesn't count, and Israel still occupies Syrian territory, so I'm not sure where you get this idea that land for peace won't work. Israel has only tried it once, and it worked fine. Try again, and if it fails, then we'll be more accepting of your tirade. Also, to my knowledge, Arafat never brandished an AK on any world stage. I think you're confusing him with something you may have seen on late-night cable.
