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
Obama was not asking for permission (Israel wishes). He was telling BB what he was going to do, and then he told him what he did..It's called a courtesy call, so BB wouldn't get his panties in a bunch and screw things up. Notice that BB has told his people to shut their mouths vis a vis this information. Obama was simply saying, "This is what I'm doing and what I did, so just deal with it and don't mess things up".
