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 | 0 comments
This is a pretty poorly thought out view, Mr. Rubinstein. If Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian factions couldn't hold themselves to a truce in Gaza, there's NO reason whatsoever to believe they'll hold to a truce in the W. Bank as well. It's another case of being too quick to violence. Except Islamic Jihad have had months to realize this. They probably still haven't. So now once again Abbas has to run around playing mouthpiece to get them to agree to something they won't bother following. Please. And just in case it'll be the topic of next week's article, no, Hamas have not renounced violence. They can get their own representatives to say it.
