From israel today Magazine:
Meanwhile, tensions between Israel and post-revolution Egypt are again rising after Muslim gunmen bombed the Sinai natural gas pipeline on Saturday, the fifth such attack since Mubarak’s ouster. . . . Israel receives about 40 percent of its natural gas from that pipeline, and having it out of order is setting the stage for an energy cost crisis in the Jewish state.
The latest pipeline attack has reignited the debate over whether or not Israel should continue to purchase natural gas from Egypt, considering that the Jewish state has recently discovered its own massive reserves.
Israel buys natural gas from Egypt as part of the Camp David Accords that brought peace between the two nations.
L&B’s own Torre Bissell was one of the intercessors the Holy Spirit used during the Camp David negotiations between Israel and Egypt. The destruction of the pipeline is a strike against peace.–JW
Today’s news events make me wonder if we are at a pivotal moment in history. The demonstrations across the Middle East, the US economy, the UN plans to vote on a Palestinian state, and the natural disasters are all evidence of a changing world.
