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
Another of the absurd public statements from Israeli government officials, which often suggest they are participating in a collective self-brainwashing. The twisted logic of this particular statement could only make sense in Israel, where the government will contrive ANY justification for its continued oppression of the Palestinians. This man doesn't even believe what he is saying, but will say it anyway because it allows him (and the great majority of the Israeli people) to justify the criminal brutality of the IDF, the ongoing occupation and theft of Palestinian land, and the imprisonment of more than a million non-combatant civilians in Gaza.
