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 | 1 comments
So far, all of the Israeli leaders have been the same, with the possible exception of Rabin. The militants attack, Israel responds, Israel gives up poor ground, takes more good ground. After more than 50 years, the Palestinians don't have their own nation and there is no prospect of one in the near future. Israel prefers this situation to withdrawing from the west bank. It really doesn't matter which party is in power or who the PM is. All are swept along by events greater than they are, and the situation that they inherit is the same one the leave behind. If there were not Hamas militants to attack Israel, then Israel would be forced to hire some. This is what keeps the land grab moving ahead in the west bank.
