So much for Egypt's money. This will solve nothing. Hamas and Fatah are not well liked, and there is reason for that. But, those who do not understand the problem on either sides, don't wait and listen - they just react. I hope this wasn't on purpose, but it wouldn't be the first time.

The last thing Egypt needs right now is more money problems.

Bs report.

According to your link:
Israel paid $1.33 per cube. 4 times the market price. Somehow stored 1,5bln of it (and never used).
Gonna sell it back at $9.33 per mcube. 26.6 times the price. Somebody is very bad at simple arithmetics.

wholesale price of gas is 35c per cube:

"In April 2008, the wholesale price was $10 per 1,000 cubic feet (28 m3) ($10/MMBTU).[39] The residential price varies from 50% to 300% more than the wholesale price. At the end of 2007, this was $12–$16 per 1,000 cu ft (28 m3)."

In what country ?You also need to consider the price of supplying that gas. So, in Egypt, Jordan and Israel's case, the cost is less then let's say trying to build a pipeline to another country.

Where is a country the most venerable to attack? Where or what can be attacked easily, safely and will rock nations across the world. The answer is the pipe lines that the refined or crude oil flows threw.
To attack any of a hundred nations, to harm them a hundred times more economically and to make you billions in profits what has to happen. A few pipe lines are blown, a few bombs are found in refineries and oil prices spike.
If you actually wanted to harm many nations slow the world recovery because you as an oil producing nation will not be harmed, you allow or stage attacks on your oil pipelines and refineries. The UN can not declare a war on you for the rising price of fuel. You can have your military running around looking, and finding more bombs every two or three days and your treasury and private fortune will grow.
An increase in fuel by a dollar a gallon at the pumps, blamed on revolutionaries and discontents would harm the world economies more then a few more little wars. A two dollar increase would begin military actions by Europe, China and India. A five dollar increase at the pumps would have Americans screaming to take the Arab oil! (Americans do not understand we buy from Canada much more the Arab nations)
All in all, a change from soft targets to manufacturing locations is huge in this new war we are facing.

If Israel would stop bulldozing Palestinian neighborhoods to build their "Jewish" settlements this would stop. Israel refuses to accept that, by their very nature & history, they too are Palestinian.

At the end of December 2010, a huge natural gas discovery was confirmed in the Eastern Mediterranean inside Israel’s territorial waters. It is called the Leviathan gas deposit in the Levant Basin and marks a major development for Israel, with the potential for making Israel an energy exporter over the next decade. Natural gas was first discovered off Israel’s coast in 1999, but the quantity was so small that until recently, Israel was still planning on importing natural gas from Russia. The Leviathan field, discovered by a consortium led by Houston-based Noble Energy, is the world’s largest offshore gas find in the past decade and makes Israel now among the ranks of the world’s largest gas reserve holders in the world. [Possibly, the Leviathan field may contain a world-scale oil deposit as well.

Lebanon has sought to remind the world that the Leviathan discovery does not reside exclusively within Israel's territory. Lebanon has taken its case to the United Nations for further discussion.
Additionally, Iran has indicated that it intends to support Lebanon further - in energy exploration projects around the region.
The Leviathan finding is of particular importance to both Israel and Lebanon, as both countries currently rely on foreign sources for their energy needs.
The discovery of the massive natural gas field has also led to trade frictions between Israel and the United States, after Israel moved to raise royalties on the American field developers.

You are absolutely correct, the gas find in the Med does indeed extend into Lebanese territorial waters and yes, Lebanon in my view is fully within it's rights to stake a claim for that portion of the find.
The larger picture of course was the gas discovery itself and the long-term positive implications it could have for countries in the region, including Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, Egypt and the Palestinian Territories. All of ther parties neede to work together to resolve their disputes. This discovery "could" be a huge win-win for everyone.

How idiotic. What does this achieve exactly?
11:44 AM on 04/27/2011
They don't want their natural gas being sent to Israel, particularly as the Israelis have been getting it at a discount in return for bribes to the Mubarak clan.

Actually - the problem isn't about bribes. Israel pays money to Egypt for the gas line, and there are kick backs, now they have to figure out who was getting that money as well. 

Egypt's economy doesn't need another problem, and this is another major problem. Some can't get past the anger to understand the problem.

Here is the deal with what you think as bribes - it was Murbarak, not Israel that took that money. so, now they (Egypt) lost another money source in a already crumbling economy. Not just from Israel either, but from Jordan. Not too smart. It would have  been better to  leave it and investigate who was getting the money, if any - from kick backs?  So, if you destroy your own countries income from two different countries paying you, what does that do exactly?

Now, ya'll know that Israel has a back up plan.

The HP article states that the terminal was attacked. I doubt if the Israelis orchestrated the explosion at the terminal; it wouldn't serve their cause. And, the Palestinians also will suffer with a lack of cooking fuel, etc.

This looks like the work of a group that is opposed to both Israel and Hamas.

I would not put this past Israel.

The military occupation of Gaza is intent upon transferring the sovereignty of the gas fields to Israel in violation of international law.

What can we expect in the wake of the invasion?

What is the intent of Israel with regard to Palestine's Natural Gas reserves?

A new territorial arrangement, with the stationing of Israeli and/or "peacekeeping" troops?

The militarization of the entire Gaza coastline, which is strategic for Israel?

The outright confiscation of Palestinian gas fields and the unilateral declaration of Israeli sovereignty over Gaza's maritime areas?

If this were to occur, the Gaza gas fields would be integrated into Israel's offshore installations, which are contiguous to those of the Gaza Strip. (See Map 1 above).

These various offshore installations are also linked up to Israel's energy transport corridor, extending from the port of Eilat, which is an oil pipeline terminal, on the Red Sea to the seaport - pipeline terminal at Ashkelon, and northwards to Haifa, and eventually linking up through a proposed Israeli-Turkish pipeline with the Turkish port of Ceyhan.

Ceyhan is the terminal of the Baku, Tblisi Ceyhan Trans Caspian pipeline. "What is envisaged is to link the BTC pipeline to the Trans-Israel Eilat-Ashkelon pipeline, also known as Israel's Tipline." (See Michel Chossudovsky, The War on Lebanon and the Battle for Oil, Global Research, July 23, 2006)

The incidence of sabatoge in Egypt to harm Israel is unesttling for those who want peace. Gas rates can be re-negotiated. Explosions seek to cut off all access. If extremists gain a disproportionate influence in Egypt, Israelis will not be willing to take any risk for peace.

You mean the kind of thing the Palestinian Authority does to Gazans don't you?
Sole Gaza power plant shuts down for lack of fuel
GAZA CITY: The Gaza Strip's sole power plant shut down on Saturday for lack of diesel fuel, a Palestinian power authority official said.

Kanaan Obeid, assistant director of Gaza's electricity authority, said the plant, which provides 25 percent of Gaza's power, was forced to shut down due to a payment dispute between the strip's Hamas rulers and the rival Palestinian administration in the West Bank.

The power plant has closed down on several occasions in the past because of fuel shortages.

The Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority says Hamas is to blame for the crisis, accusing it of allowing tens of thousands of salaried Gazans not to pay their bills and thereby share in the cost of industrial fuel for the plant.

But the Islamic movement Hamas has pointed the finger at the PA and accused it of worsening Israel's blockade on Gaza.

You should hear some of the horror stories of what the Bedouins do to those Sudanese refugees in Sinai.
Bedouin human traffickers are holding a group of refugees and asylum seekers hostage in purpose built facilities south of Rafah on Egypt’s border with Israel.

They are reportedly torturing the survivors to extract a further $8,000 per person, in addition to the $2,000 they already received from each person for transfer to Israel.

According to CSW, the refugees have been repeatedly beaten and “branded like cattle”, and are being deprived of sufficient food and water.

There are reports that some in the group have been forced to drink their own urine and that several men were told their organs would be harvested in lieu of payment.

According to Italian NGO Agenzia Habeshia, four women in the group were gang raped on Saturday for failing to pay the ransom, while the health of a pregnant woman has deteriorated after being badly beaten.

Last month, the traffickers murdered two Orthodox deacons who were among 100 Eritrean refugees separated from the larger group, which also includes Sudanese, Somalis and Ethiopians.

It is believed the deacons were singled out for punishment and killed for alerting human rights groups about the refugees still being held by the traffickers.

Exampe of how much the Bedouins care about those refugees.
TEL AVIV — About 1,000 African migrants trying to cross the Sinai Desert from Egypt into Israel have been systematically beaten, raped and held captive for ransom in the past year by the Bedouin smugglers they hired to help them make the journey, an Israeli advocacy organization said Tuesday.

Testimony collected by the Hotline for Migrant Workers in a new report depicts a network of torture camps in the northern reaches of the desert where the migrants, mostly Eritrean, are sometimes held for months in abusive conditions, while their Bedouin captors press their families abroad to send thousands of dollars in ransom money.

“I was a virgin when I arrived in the desert,” said a 21-year-old Eritrean woman cited in the report, who was held for six months. “During the first few times that I was raped, I cried and resisted, but that didn’t help. They wouldn’t leave me alone. After that I stopped resisting. Only when the $2,800 arrived did the smugglers unchain me.”

In their accounts in the report and in person, the migrants recall a pattern of abuse, including gang rapes and beatings with electric rods and heavy sticks. Often, they said, they were shackled together in groups as their armed captors kept them under guard. At one of the camps, captives were given T-shirts with numbers printed on and referred by numbers.

Egypt is getting ripped off on the gas price,which ex dictator Mubarak is responsible for.All deals should be cancelled and the gas should be sold at current market prices.Most Egyptians would have blown it themselves if they had the chance.

I agree with Israel. There are only so many jobs, etc an economy can support. They force America to take 1 million and now up to 2 million per year. The U.S. economy can not support it. 1/7th of all income in the U.S. is welfare paid by taxpayers. To Israel,the 40K more refugees that is 40K more welfare checks, food stamps, section 8 housing and other social programs that Israel will have to take from the people that have worked and built Israel to give to persons that the economy does not have jobs or educational funds for. Just in U.S. illegal refugeees not counting the above in U.S. is 383 billion per year social programs from taxpayers because they are not removed. If there are going to be jobs given in Israel it should go to Palestine first, not illegls and refugees.
