Eastern Mediterranean Mineral Rights of the New Philistia Proposal

Gas and oil reserves discovered in the Levant/Levantine Basin of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea could prove to be a huge game-changer for Palestinians if they were to adopt my proposal for the location of their desired state. The wealth they could realize, and the economic security of becoming energy independent and perhaps an energy exporter, could cause nearly all Palestinians in the West Bank to decide they would prefer relocating to this territory and letting Israel have all of the West … [Read more...]

More Turmoil in the Lawless Northern Sinai Peninsula

Turmoil in Egypt's lawless Northern Sinai Peninsula continues to increase. To recount, late last year Islamic militants instigated a shootout in the Northern Sinai near the borders of Israel, the Gaza Strip, and the Sinai, killing 16 Egyptian soldiers. And early this year, there, militants abducted 7 Egyptian security personnel.Recently, on August 9 Israel conducted a drone strike into the Northern Sinai, having the apparent approval of the Egyptian military, which resulted in 6 Islamic … [Read more...]

The Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process Is Revived

Yesterday, after five years of dormancy of the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, the U.S. revived it thanks mostly to the shuttle diplomacy of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. Two weeks ago in Washington, D.C., Kerry reportedly told Jewish leaders the U.S. would guarantee Israel's security in a two-state peace agreement by stationing U.S. troops in critical areas throughout the region. Bad idea! The borderlines between the proposed two states that they are talking about is a … [Read more...]

Israel Does It Again: Torpedoes the Peace Process

Israel has a long, repeated history of doing something that ends its peace process with the Palestinians right when important negotiations with them are about to begin. Now they’ve done it again. It often involves Israel announcing plans to construct housing units in some Jewish settlement in the West Bank or East Jerusalem. Guess what! That’s what it is this time, too.On Sunday, Israel announced that it will build 1,200 more settlement homes: 2/3s in the West Bank and 1/3 in East Jerusalem. … [Read more...]

The Peace Process Renews While Turmoil Continues in the Northern Sinai Peninsula

For the past few months, newly-installed U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has conducted Henry Kissinger style shuttle diplomacy between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA). The PA is headquartered in the city of Ramallah, located in the West Bank and north of Jerusalem. Kerry has thereby achieved a restarting of the peace process between them which has been dead for five years. It started last week in Washington, D.C. But so far, meetings have been conducted by lesser officials and … [Read more...]

I Agree with Helen Thomas–”Jews Should Get the Hell Out of Palestine”

But it depends on how you define "Palestine." I don't define it the way she did and just about everyone else does these days.Helen Thomas died yesterday at age 92. As a White House correspondent, she blazed a trail for women as a pioneer in American journalism. Often called "the First Lady of the Press," she became the first female president of the White House Correspondents' Association and the Washington's Gridiron Club. And she was the first female officer of the prestigious National … [Read more...]

Stephen Hawking Is Boycotting Israel’s Conference, and I Would Too

The world's most famous, atheistic physicist is protesting Israel's mistreatment of Palestinians by boycotting a major, international science conference to be held there next month. That seems inconsistent to me, since he has already visited Israel four times. I've been boycotting Israel for the same reason for over thirty years, and I've been consistent about it. But then, who cares! No one's asking me to come there.In about 1980, I discovered in some Old Testament prophecies that there … [Read more...]

Eastern Mediterranean Gas Discoveries

Gas discoveries in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea could turn out to be quite a game changer for the Palestinians, even more so than for the Israelis.This subject has been very unreported in the U.S. In the late 1990s, the State of Israel contracted with both British Gas Corporation of UK (also has a partner) and Noble Energy Corporation of the U.S. to do exploratory drilling for oil and natural gas in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea in a large region named the Levantine Basin. British Gas first … [Read more...]
