Skip to comments.Egypt Unilaterally Breaks Off Gas Deal, Cairo breaks agreement that is part of the peace treaty

Egypt informed Israel Sunday afternoon that it is unilaterally cancelling the agreement of supply of gas to Israel. The announcement was made to EMG, the firm that receives the gas from Egypt, and reported on Channel 2 news.
The peace treaty with Egypt includes a financial appendix, in which Egypt agrees to supply Israel with oil. Several years ago the appendix was changed so that the oil was replaced by gas. The treaty commits Egypt to supply Israel with the amount of gas it requires for a specified period, in exchange for payment.

Israel and Egypt will be at war within a year.*That* could get very complicated.
Heckuva job, Baracky.
If Egypt wants to renege on the peace treaty, then might as well take back the whole Sinai again.
Never sign a treaty with an Arab country. They make treaties signed with Nazis seem more likely of holding up.
Ask an American indian about treaties.
So, as long as we continue to give them aid, apparently Egypt doesn’t need Israel’s gas money. What if we reciprocated and simply said to Egypt that if they don’t honor this deal, we cut off all aid?
The result of Obummer’s Arab Spring!
—Ask an American indian about treaties.—
I would like nothing better than to abolish all indian reservations, but we have honored those treaties to this day.
He is a true friend of the Moslem brotherhood. Such a failure of policy or intentional design by Obama when he went to Egypt to give his famous Egyptian spring speech. Who does Obama work for?
And Egypt will replace this valuable source of foreign exchange, on top of its 17+% drop in tourism with....uhhh, er, ummm...what?
Obummer will give the Moslem Brotherhood the money to make up for the drop in tourism. Obummer more failure then you know 2012 campaign.
“Who does Obama work for?”
He works for muslims and rules Americans.
Nothing like that will happen until we get another administration in D.C. that is dedicated to defending the western world against Islamofacism.
The current administration seeems to more interested in helping America’s enemeis.
Israel was warned by many at the time of the Sinai agreement not to enter into it. Those who did not want this agreement warned simply that those who signed it might be deposed or murdered.
The argument for the agreement was that Israel needed peace and a rest from war. Begin is revered by many in Israel for bringing this fragile peace however long it has or will last. I sympathize with both points of view. I do not have a child in the military there and cannot imagine having watch him go off to a war. On the other hand, such a war would be probable, given the violent and irrational nature of Israel’s enemies in Egypt.
Personally, I would have preferred that Israel had annexed all the land it conquered in ‘67 and let the Islamic countries deal with it in whatever way at that time. Better to deal with ones enemies from strength, IMHO.
It’s all that smart diplomacy
Were I elected King like obammy, first thing I’d do is eliminate the Bureau of Indian Affairs, along with about 70 percent of all the other gub mint agencies. Cause they and their employees are f-ing worthless.
if you would like to experience the total failure of a communistic form of government, visit an Indian reservation. Abject poverty, laziness, alcoholism in epidemic proportions, government housing etc. etc.. Government checks arrive for the inhabitants and no work needs to be done to live. All Indian treaties should be abolished, reservations should be assimilated by their home states, and the Indian population mainstreamed into society. The sooner this is done, the better it will be for ALL concerned.
With rumors of shale oil in the Golan Heights, perhaps our Fracking Technologies can help their as well.
Then they can tell the Bortherhood to go Frack themselves...
