Gas barons dictate Israeli foreign policy

The Tamar consortium is considering a $15 billion contract to sell liquified gas to Russia’s Gazprom. Such a sale would create conflict between Israel and France, which also wants to buy LPG from us, incidentally to protect itself against the Gazprom racket.

The contract would run for fifteen years, which is the projected life span of the gas field. After that time, having sold our gas to international bidders, Israel would again be at the mercy of Muslim gas suppliers.
