    Moussa has been a rejectionist of israel as a jewish state for so long...he has consistently demagogued the issue and misled his people by villifying israel and demonizing the jews. He is NOT a new face for a new generation. sidebar...iraqi oil is NOT goin to the the much for the left wing conspiracy nuts some FACTS...facts that make left wingers out to be exactly what they are...LIARS. READ BELOW.... "Of the more than 40 companies to take part in the last licensing round, only seven firms present at the auction were American and only one actually entered a bid. Some industry observers had feared that the underlying goal of U.S.-led invasion of Iraq was to gain control of that Middle Eastern country's oil reserves, but so far that hasn't been the case. We haven't really seen U.S. companies, and that is because of intense competition, said Thamir Ghadhban, a prime ministerial adviser and former oil minister. The issue is financial and technical and not at all political. This confirms Iraq can manage its oil policy and activities without politicization. Chinese energy companies are well suited for projects in Iraq, because they have less experience and fewer business opportunities than their larger, Western counterparts. Many Western companies are shying away from Iraq because of unfavorable contract terms and security risks. But with exploration costs soaring, and many of the world's premium reserves already spoken for, China is ready and willing to invest heavily in Iraq. Royal Dutch Shell PLC (NYSE: RDS.A , RDS.B), OAO Gazprom (OTC ADR: OGZPY), Lukoil (OTC ADR: LUKOY), China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC), and Malaysia's Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) all announced major new deals after participating in the biggest oil-field auction in history. Lukoil and Statoil will redevelop Iraq's West Qurna-2 field, which is believed to hold more than 12 billion barrels of oil reserves, for a production fee of $1.15 per barrel. Royal Dutch Shell and Petronas will develop Majnoon, a similar-sized oil field. Additionally, the state-owned Petronas will join forces with Total SA (NYSE ADR: TOT) and CNPC on the Halfaya field, which has proven reserves of 4.1 billion barrels."
