(Palestinian Authority UN envoy Riyad Mansour)

Arutz Sheva: “The goal is to establish an exclusive economic zone off the coast of Gaza under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, said ambassador Riyad Mansour.

The Palestinian strategy is to reach agreements with two of its neighbors in the Mediterranean — first Egypt and then Cyprus — to define exclusive economic zones with respect to them, and then consult with lawyers as to what its potential borders with Israel could be.

Experts will then take an inventory of the natural resources claimed by the Palestinians and, and they will file their EEZ with the UN convention on the law of the sea.

It is a way to save time for future generations, said Mansour.”

tussleOpinion: The lie that the Israelis occupy land belonging to a non-people group is moving to the next and possibly most dangerous phase.

Offshore from Gaza is the Leviathan gas field, which, in 2010 was called the most prominent field ever found in the sub-explored area of the Levantine Basin, which covers about 83,000 square kilometers of the eastern Mediterranean region.

When coupled with Tamar field, in the same location, discovered one year earlier, they give Israel the potential to become a net energy exporter, much to the chagrin of one Vladimir Putin.

Since Russia’s economy depends on oil and gas sales, Putin will not tolerate competition for his government majority-owned oil and gas giant Gazprom.

In 2005 Gaza was given back to the Palestinians in a land for peace farce. The land was given but the peace lasted less than 24 hours.

The idea of maritime borders between Gaza and Egypt will undoubtedly set the stage for the Palestinian demand to own at least part of or all the Leviathan and Tamar gas fields.

Since virtually every nation on earth is for a two state solution, the pressure will be on Israel and specifically Netanyahu to find a way to placate the UN/US/EU in keeping control of the vast energy fields.

The plot thickens.

The National Interest: “Prior to the February 17, 2011, “Day of Rage,” Libya had a national budget surplus of 8.7 percent of GDP in 2010, with oil production at 1.8 million barrels per day, on track to reach its goal of 3 million barrels per day. Currently, oil production has decreased by over 80 percent. Following the revolution, the Libyan economy contracted by an estimated 41.8 percent, with a national deficit of 17.1 percent GDP in 2011.

Before the revolution, Libya was a secure, prospering, secular Islamic country and a critical ally providing intelligence on terrorist activity post–September 11, 2001. Qaddafi was no longer a threat to the United States. Yet Secretary of State Hillary Clinton strongly advocated and succeeded in convincing the administration to support the Libyan rebels with a no-fly zone, intended to prevent a possible humanitarian disaster that turned quickly into all-out war

Despite valid ceasefire opportunities to prevent “bloodshed in Benghazi” at the onset of hostilities, Secretary Clinton intervened and quickly pushed her foreign policy in support of a revolution led by the Muslim Brotherhood and known terrorists in the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.”

Opinion: The decision to legitimize the Muslim Brotherhood began in 2009. The Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, a fierce anti-Semite who had been banned in Egypt for 30 years, wrote an open letter to President Obama arguing terrorism was a direct response to U.S. foreign policy.

Let’s get into the way-back machine to recall how the Obama/Clinton/Muslim Brotherhood connection began courtesy of Front Page Mag July 22, 2012:

  • 2009: Obama travels to Cairo to deliver apologetic speech to Muslims, and infuriates the Mubarak regime by inviting banned Brotherhood leaders to attend. Obama deliberately snubs Mubarak, who was neither present nor mentioned. He also snubs Israel during the Mideast trip.
  • 2010: State Department lifts visa ban on Tariq Ramadan, suspected terrorist and Egyptian-born grandson of Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna.
  • 2010: Obama meets one-on-one with Egypt’s foreign minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, who later remarks on Nile TV: “The American president told me in confidence that he is a Muslim.”
  • 2010: The Brotherhood’s supreme guide calls for jihad against the U.S.
  • 2011: Qaradawi calls for “days of rage” against Mubarak and other pro-Western regimes throughout Mideast
  • 2011: Riots erupt in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Crowds organized by the Brotherhood demand Mubarak’s ouster, storm buildings.
  • 2011: The White House fails to back longtime ally Mubarak, who flees Cairo.
  • 2011: White House sends intelligence czar James Clapper to Capitol Hill to whitewash the Brotherhood’s extremism. Clapper testifies the group is moderate, largely secular.”
  • 2011: Qaradawi, exiled from Egypt for 30 years, is given a hero’s welcome in Tahrir Square, where he raises the banner of jihad.
  • 2011: Through his State Department office, William Taylor — Clinton’s special coordinator for Middle East transitions and a longtime associate of Brotherhood apologists —gives Brotherhood and other Egyptian Islamists special training to prepare for the post-Mubarak elections.
  • 2011: The Brotherhood wins control of Egyptian parliament, vows to tear up Egypt’s 30-year peace treaty with Israel and reestablishes ties with Hamas, Hezbollah.
  • 2011: Obama gives Mideast speech demanding Israel relinquish land to Palestinians, while still refusing to visit Israel.
  • 2011: Justice Department pulls plug on further prosecution of U.S.-based Brotherhood front groups identified as collaborators in conspiracy to funnel millions to Hamas.
  • 2011: In a shocking first, the State Department formalizes ties with Egypt’s Brotherhood, letting diplomats deal directly with Brotherhood party officials in Cairo.
  • April 2012: The administration quietly releases $1.5 billion in foreign aid to the new Egyptian regime.
  • June 2012: Morsi wins presidency amid widespread reports of electoral fraud and voter intimidation by gun-toting Brotherhood thugs — including blockades of entire streets to prevent Christians from going to the polls. The Obama administration turns a blind eye, recognizes Morsi as victor.
  • June 2012: In a victory speech, Morsi vows to instate Shariah law, turning Egypt into an Islamic theocracy, and also promises to free jailed terrorists. He also demands Obama free World Trade Center terrorist and Brotherhood leader Omar Abdel-Rahman, a.k.a. the Blind Sheik, from U.S. prison.
  • June 2012: State grants visa to banned Egyptian terrorist who joins a delegation of Brotherhood officials from Egypt. They’re all invited to the White House to meet with Obama’s deputy national security adviser, who listens to their demands for the release of the Blind Sheik.
  • July 2012: Obama invites Morsi to visit the White House.

In 2009, Hillary Clinton was appointed Secretary of State and hired Huma Abedin as deputy chief of staff, despite known family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Times of Israel: Hamas officials promised Egypt two months ago they’d end cooperation with IS fighters in Sinai. But Gaza’s rulers have done nothing of the kind, and the repercussions could impact Israel.

Despite the promises by Gaza’s rulers to stop the smuggling to and from Sinai and the recent arrests, Hamas continues to maintain a delicate and complicated web of interests and alliances with Islamic State in Sinai.”

Opinion: You have to move the refrigerator to see how many roaches there are.

There are so many terror groups operating in southern Israel today you would think it was the 5th day of the 9th month of Av, 586 BC, on the Jewish calendar.

That was the day that Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, sent his armies to destroy the first temple.

That day, known as Tisha B’Av is the day that the first Jewish Temple, the soul of Judaism, was destroyed and the Israelites were taken into captivity for 70 years.

That day, Esau’s descendants helped the Babylonian army – even turning in those who tried to escape, Obadiah 1:13-14.

Just before that time, Esau’s descendants had been forced out of their ancestral home in Mt. Seir (southeast) and moved into Judea to help themselves to the land that their patriarch had traded for a bowl of soup some 1500 years earlier.

As amazing as it sounds Edom’s descendants are doing the same thing for the same reason: to kill Jacob (Genesis 27:41) and take the land promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants after them, Genesis 17:7-8.
