Lapid Signs Controversial Maritime Deal with Lebanon – Enemy Country Insists on Separate Ceremonies


Prime Minister Yair Lapid on Thursday signed the agreement on a maritime boundary between Israel and Lebanon, that will permit Israel’s neighbor to the north to start digging for underwater natural gas in an area that extends into Israel’s territory.

An Israeli delegation, led by Director-General of the Energy Ministry Lior Schillat, left onboard a helicopter for the signing ceremony at the Rosh Hanikra border crossing. The delegation will cross the border to the UNIFIL base in Nakura in synch with the Lebanese delegation, but not together, God forbid.

“For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You: The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre” Psalm 83:5-7

Lapid and Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun also did not sign the same document, but identical documents that will be submitted to the UN representative at the Rosh Hanikra crossing. Lebanon has been stressing throughout the years of negotiations with Israel that it does not recognize the Jewish State, nor has it given up its desire to see it be erased by its army of terrorists, Hezbollah.

Indeed, many in Israel suspect that the reason Lapid has chosen to capitulate so quickly, after years of an impasse, had to do with his fear of a Hezbollah retaliation that would involve thousands of rockets being fired at Israeli civilians up north, as the terrorist group has done in 2006. There have been speculations that the Supreme Court, guided by its President Esther Hayut, agreed to reject three different legitimate petitions against the agreement after having been shown behind closed doors the extent of Israel’s vulnerability before a future Hezbollah aggression.

Lapid told his cabinet Thursday that the agreement boosts the security of Israel and “our freedom of action against Hezbollah and the threats from the north.” Believe me, every single minister around that table knew he was lying.
