Israel is Set to be Iraqi Kurdistan’s First Client for its Crude Oil Tanker

The Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) has been looking for a client to buy its tanker oil, after the Iraqi government threatened legal action against any buyers who purchased Kurdish oil independently and not through the Iraq central government, according to a Reuters report on Friday.

The tanker is set to dock in Israel on Saturday night, and Israel is apparently buying it.

Iraq already boycotts Israel, and won’t sell oil to the Jewish state, so Israel is not overly concerned with Iraqi threats of sanctions, unlike other countries who have oil contracts with Iraq.

The oil comes from a new pipeline built to bypass Baghdad’s pipeline, which will help maintain Iraqi Kurdistan’s financial independence.

  1. Stuart Kaufman says:

    Israel and the Kurds – a natural alliance. The added benefit is that it will drive the Arabs and the Turks up the wall. PERFECT!

  2. The United States of ME: Israel and Kurdistan.

  3. Regarding Israel buying Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) oil, EVEN the great De Beers diamond cartel was broken. Oil is a lot bigger and more slippery able to get through Iran's despicable blockages. Let the oil flow with the milk and honey!

  4. David Schwed says:

    My brother-in-law, Mohammad Ali is a Muslim Kurd and one of the kindest man I ever met. He is a brother to me. Kurds and Jews are a natural alliance. This is a positive result of the current craziness. A blessing.

  5. John Renaud says:

    This is a positive development. I hope Israel gets a lot more oil from Kurdistan.

  6. There are many Kurdish Jews in Israel. Our fathers talked much in fever of the Kurdish Jews. We (the Kurds) have always the feeling of alliance and closeness towards the Jews. We are alike in many aspects..Let us take the advantage of any opportunity to be closer for a better future!!
