Tensions Mount In The Golan Heights Over Oil And Territory


slowlyOil Price (.com): “Following the resolution of a permit issue, Afek Oil & Gas, a subsidiary of American company Genie Energy, has resumed efforts to verify whether or not commercially viable options for oil extraction exist within the Golan Heights region. These drillings are anything but routine, as years of conflict and contestation over the plateau – which was seized by Israel in 1967 – have led to profound disagreement over the territory’s sovereignty.

As Afek works to uncover what could be a step towards energy independence for Israel, the Israeli leadership is lobbying the United States to change its historical position that the region belongs to Syria. They want the U.S. to support Israel’s strategic interests in and claims to the Golan Heights, including the development of its natural resources.

With the worsening situation in Syria and the need for Syrian rebel support, the United States and the rest of the international community have a delicate task ahead in dealing with the Golan Heights, however, it is likely that Israel will eventually have its way.”

Opinion: Somebody call somebody!

Prophetically, the headline would read “Israel is Fulfilling Prophecies of Genesis, Deuteronomy and Isaiah”

Genesis 49:25 “By the God of your father who will help you, And by the Almighty who will bless you With blessings of heaven above, Blessings of the deep that lies beneath, Blessings of the breasts and of the womb.”

Deuteronomy 33:19 “They shall call the peoples to the mountain; There they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness; For they shall partake of the abundance of the seas And of treasures hidden in the sand.”

Isaiah 45:3 “I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.”

Two hundred years after Isaiah, Ezekiel 38:1-13 prophesied that Israel would grow exceedingly wealthy in the last days – so much so that Gog (prince from the far north) along with Iran, Turkey and 4 North African nations will come to take plunder.

In case you missed one of the most under-reported headlines of the century, on October 8, 2015 an announcement was made that Israel found oil in one of the most contested pieces of real estate in the world

The huge oil deposit is thought to be enough to last Israel for decades while two members of the Gog/Magog alliance (Russia and Iran) have conspicuously set up a strong military presence just over the Golan Heights.
