It's not gas and oil that made Iran / Persia autocratic under the Shah and a terrorist, fanatic regime under the Ayatollahs. It's not oil and gas either what make the House of Saud a conservative Wahhabi somewhat pro-Western dictatorship. It's Islam and Arab culture. Countries without oil and gas -or with non-relevant quantities-, like Jordan and Syria, are dynastic autocracies just as well. The "interracial" -"Der Stürmer"-like incitement of the 30 Rebbetzins, the messianist powers and the corrupt leaders also have nothing to do, and predate the flow of natural gas out of Israel. This article is using the natural gas discovery to lash out at the worrying trends in Israel, but there is no connection between them.
