Moses Took the Right Turn after all, Says Netanyahu

“It turns out that Moses wasn’t such a bad navigator after all, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the Israeli Presidential Conference birthday party for President Shimon Peres Thursday evening.

Negating the old joke that Moses could have turned towards Saudi Arabia and lead the People of Israel from Egypt to a land of oil instead of one of “milk and honey” and sand, the Prime Minister said, “We’re lucky enough not to have discovered gas in our first 65 years, or 60 years, because we could rely on our wits, on our ingenuity.

“And yesterday we decided to open up our gas fields for developing an export. We’re not going to make the mistake of those countries who said we shall not export, and the gas remained in the ground and in the sea. We’re going to develop the gas for our internal market and we’re going to fill up the coffers of the state with what we bring from exports for the benefit of all Israelis.”

    In fact, it is quite difficult to find a developing country for which the discovery of oil and gas has proven a blessing.

  2. Ezekiel 38, 39, Gog and Magog,, have you come to take a spoil, Is this the hooks in their mouth' sp oil. Messiah will return soon , keep the oil in your lamps.

  3. A bad idea to export natural gas, it is better to export NG by-product, the NG is a compound of Hydrogen and Carbon, NG by crack down with microwafe cold plasma technology to H and the by-product C, with can be produced electricity and water in the same time with internal combustion engines and/or fuel cells and C you get sootcan be produced to carbon black, nano tubes, carbon fiber, graphite, graphene, etc:, exporting is value added C by-products, the investment is very much lower than to export liquid natural gas.

  4. I forgot to tell this is a non emmisions technology, I wonder if in Israel has such technology?

  5. Charlie Hall says:

    Norway had become a wealthy country before it discovered oil. It may now be the wealthiest country in the world — despite being one of the most heavily taxed.

  6. You are wrong, Norway in the 60's and 70's was one of the poorest countries in Europe, they lived fishing, the wealth syarted after finding off shore oil, thanks to the the good goverments are healthy, I hope that Israel will take the same way, the other country which is going the same way like Norway is Colombia.
