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 | 1 comments
Fayyad is a good man, and according to the Europeans he is doing what is needed to create a state infrastructure. His time scale of 2001 is agreed to by the Quartet. I hope his vision materializes, but so far this is a single man's vision. Fayyad is not a leader of a political party. Remember Bashir Jemayel in Lebanon? One bomb eliminated the Sharon vision of installing the Christians as lords of Lebanon. Fayyad should take care of himself. From the settlers, to Netanyahu (remember Rabin?), to Hamas, Hizballah and other Arab extremists (remember Sadat?), the world if full of danger.
