Gaza: The reason why?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Who else was aware that there exists significant gas reserves off the coast of Israel/Gaza? (Ok- anyone who reads the Guardian or Indy or the Torygraph, but it was a rhetorical question so bollocks)

Well, apparently 60% of those reserves are in the Gazan region. Israel, like the rest of the world, relies upon oil and gas to fuel its economy. It currently relies on imports, mostly from Egypt- hardly a "friend". Imagine if it could secure the rest of those reserves exclusively for itself. The only obstacle is any sort of functional Palestinian government in Gaza . . . . . oh . . . . right.
