New lucrative terror targets

Lebanon has hired a company to perform a geological survey of the disputed shelf zone, obviously to sell concessions for gas drilling in the Leviathan field. Large international companies would flock to the Lebanese government for concessions because Israel has already sold her share to private companies. Lebanese claims will thus be backed by major corporate interests.

Lebanese claims are not without merit: the economic maritime area is not demarcated between our countries, and the bilateral demarcation agreements with Cyprus are irrelevant. Lebanese claims in the UN will automatically be backed by the Muslim majority.

Gas drilling platforms in the sea will be easy targets for Hezbollah attacks.
