Israel needs to export gas
Gas exports have a strategic dimension. The minute we sell gas to Jordan, Cyprus, Turkey, the Palestinian Authority and the countries of East Asia, our international position will improve.
Once, exporting was considered a good thing. We admired those who brought in dollars. Once, wealthy capitalists won respect and admiration. But today, the reverse is true: Exporting is bad, dollars cause harm and capitalists have become the hated tycoons.
