Bingo! It figured, yeah. Thx Evelyn. And, after they will have successfully emptied out Syria- IF the world lets that happen..- the same people will be lined up there for more such licenses.

Thank you for the post. Hope that we all get a little more off-grid solar energy -- where people are willing!

Too bad -- that is a good place to go swimming!
"....Reed notes that recent natural gas finds off Israel’s coast in the Mediterranean have made the country's offshore gas reserve one of the largest of its kind in the world, meaning Israel may become a significant energy exporter in its region..."

Except, Ruth, those gas fields actually belong to the Palestinians..but Israel has been stealing just about everything from them, so no surprise. This story is over 2 yrs old, I haven't checked news lately how that long struggle they 've had with Noble Energy developped..

Oh, for alternative energy to become so widespread (even for vehicles) that the oil wells become totally uneconomic!!
I'd prefer that even where the drilling isn't on appropriated land (or sea bottom)

Anything Dastardly Dick has his hand in is going to be rotten to the core.
