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
The Pals get the green light for unilateral declaration, the UN recognizes the new state - with U.S. yes/abstention - and Israel is subsequently called upon to respect the borders of their state by the UNSC, with a viable threat of sanctions and international boycott should it refuse - none of which would be required, of course, because Israel would [ahemmm]no doubt be ready to recognize the new Palestinian state and to begin working towards a close and mutually beneficial relationship. This would leave only the minor detail of land exchanges to be negotiated between the two in order for Israel to retain 'some' of its settlement block along the border. So come on, USA...what do ya say? Are you up to it? Come to think of it, even the political consequences of it for Obama would be done and over by the next election if the process began soon.
