MOAR Pipeline Wars: Jews fear being gassed (by their own government) before exports to Europe even begin

"Everybody has a plan...until they get punched in the face."

-Mike Tyson

Paul Alster has an interesting story this month in The Jerusalem Post.  It begins by informing us that...

"A fierce battle is being waged in the north of Israel."

Then goes on to say...

It’s a battle pitching the might and financial muscle of the Netanyahu government, allied with powerful international energy companies and lobbyists, against local residents of the Mediterranean strip, which will soon become the site of the natural gas energy boom on which Israel’s economy may become increasingly reliant in years to come.



“Why,” ask objectors to new plans for developing the Leviathan gas field off the Carmel coast, “have proposals for up to 16 130-meter high, massive gas platforms been changed from siting them 120 km from shore for safety, efficiency and security reasons to as little as seven to 10 km from shore?” There is no doubt they will be an ugly blot on the landscape. When you look out from the hillside town of Zichron Ya’akov and gaze from the seashore to the horizon, it is a distance of approximately 32 km. The platforms will stand around a quarter of the distance out to sea, far too close by almost all calculations and international norms.

The fumes, say those opposing the plan, will drift with the sea breezes onto the population of the region, posing a significant health risk.

They note the already shockingly high numbers of breathing-related illnesses and cancers in the nearby Haifa region that are attributed to noxious fumes belching from the petrochemical plants of the Haifa Bay.

The development of the gas field close to land is set to eventually span a distance from south of Haifa Bay to Netanya where another 16 gas platforms in addition to the original 16 of the first phase are proposed, something that appears to have not yet been fully communicated to those who will eventually be affected.

But of even more concern in the new plan is the decision to process highly toxic and potentially carcinogenic condensate, a valuable natural gas byproduct, on land at the Hagit power station between Zichron Ya’akov and Yokneam. It will be piped to the shore under extreme pressure, emerging at the stunning Dor beach before being piped on to Hagit. Objectors, including residents of Dor and the adjacent beach at Nahsholim, say most gas-producing countries are not prepared to run the risk of processing condensate close to population centers and prefer to do so out at sea, limiting the potential danger to their citizens. Not so, Israel, it appears.

It seems unlikely to me that Jews will eventually become accustomed to governments poisoning them with gas.  We shall see.


Setting these fears of the Israeli people aside, let us take note of these words from the article attributed to US drilling company, Noble Energy (NE)...

The development plan approved by the Ministry of Energy on 02.06.2016, [June 2, 2016] will deliver natural gas to the Israeli market and to neighboring countries before the end of 2019. The Leviathan Production Platform is located 10 km offshore on the edge of the continental shelf and within the area approved by the National Planning Committee’s National Outline Plan 37H.

Exporting significant amounts of natural gas to neighboring countries...via pipeline...before the end of 2019?

To better understand the war in Syria, remember the surge in natural gas discoveries in the Eastern Mediterranean starting in 2009. Israel, Cyprus, and Egypt have found large gas deposits, and offshore Lebanon has the potential for significant gas resources. Israel has the potential to export gas to Egypt, Jordan, the Palestinian Authority, and Turkey [Read Europe] (Israel and Turkey have discussed a pipeline  to Turkey, but Cyprus has objected as it does not have diplomatic relations with Turkey.) 

So, looking at the following map, it is easy to see why the Israeli government and AIPAC's whores in Washington, D.C., have been so keen on regime change in Syria. 


From the EIA...

There are proposals, at varying stages of development, to export gas via pipeline and as liquefied natural gas (LNG) from both Cyprus and Israel (for a more detailed discussion of the proposed export routes, see EIA's regional brief Oil and Natural Gas in the Eastern Mediterranean). An LNG terminal in Cyprus already began pre-front-end engineering design work and could begin construction in 2015. Cyprus hopes to incorporate volumes from fields in offshore Israel into its plans, but Israel appears to prefer its own facility at this point.


Other natural gas export options include


  • A new pipeline from the eastern Mediterranean to Crete (where the volumes could flow into the European grid)
  • A new pipeline from the eastern Mediterranean to Turkey
  • Use of existing infrastructure to send volumes to Egypt for export via its LNG facilities


Several factors may influence how and when exports may came online: regional insecurity, such as the ongoing conflict in Syria and the recent unrest in Egypt; territorial disputes, such as that between Israel and Lebanon; and the status of economies in both potential exporting countries and destination markets like Europe and Asia.


Indeed, Syria and her long-standing ally and gas-exporting friend, Russia, have refused to tap-out of the fight, and it seems to have paid off.

So, with Assad and Putin's recent defeat of the Israeli-American backed terrorists in Syria, and the Israeli people protesting the industrialization of their beautiful but limited seashore, the Israeli Ministry of Energy and Noble Energy may need to revise their plan of exporting gas to neighboring countries...via pipeline...through Syria...before the end of 2019.  

What effect any delay would have on, "Israel's economy for years to come," and Noble Energy's PL and stock price remains to be seen. 

Peace, prosperity, and liberty,

Looks to me,according to the above map,that all the jews need to do is shift the green arrow a few degrees to the west and avoid Syria all together. What am I missing?

OverTheHedge's picture

Some bits of the med are very deep, and Google earth seems to be showing some kind of ridge between Cyprus and Lebanon, but that is hardly empiric evidence. I would assume that the real plan is to go north to Turkey, and then on to Europe via Greece, Bulgaria etc. NAT Gas will be free to a good home in Turkey soon, with so many pipelines running through it. My question is: how does Israel expect to keep the pipeline intact? Or do we assume that it will be an extension of Israel itself, and therefore immune from attack.

The international bankers run MI6. MI6 created the Nazis to make war and kill people. MI6 created all the elements of the "war on terror" to kill even more people.

Churchill summed up MI6's goals like this (paraphrased): "Unleash the Jews against the Arabs to drive the Arabs back into the gutters."

Any discussion that omits the role of MI6 is a fraud.

It's also worth noting that the only declaration of war by God in the Quran is against usurers (bankers).

Hate to say it h_h but everything in your read (which by the way is excellent per your usual) is only more proof that the goy in North America is exactly like his parasite in Israel, that will pretty much kill even it's own ( in order to get what it wants ""IF" IT DOESN'T GET WHAT IT WANTS"!...

But where have we seen this before with the shepherd tending his "flock" which included one of it's own more than 72 years ago (

Anne Frank's father:

Insofar as the Anne Frank diary is concerned, herewith is some background on Anne Frank, her family and her alleged Diary. 

The Franks were upper class German Jews, both coming from wealthy families. Otto and his siblings lived on the exclusive Meronstrasse in Frankfurt. Otto attended a private prep school, and also attended the Lessing Gymnasium, the most expensive school in Frankfurt. 

Otto attended Heidelberg University. After graduation he left for a long vacation in England. 

In 1909, the 20 year old Otto went to New York City where he stayed with his relatives, the Oppenheimers. 

In 1925 Anne's parents married and settled in Frankfurt, Germany. Anne was born in 1929. The Frank's family business included banking, management of the springs at Bad Soden and the manufacture of cough drops. Anne's mother, the former Edith Holländer, was the daughter of a manufacturer. 

In 1934, Otto and his family moved to Amsterdam where he bought a spice business, Opekta, which manufactures Pectin used in making household jellies. 

On May 1940, after the Germans occupied Amsterdam Otto remained in that city while his mother and brother moved to Switzerland. Otto remained in Amsterdam where his firm did business with the German Wehrmacht. From 1939 to 1944, Otto sold Opeka, and Pectin, to the German army. Pectin was a food preservative, and a anti infectant balm for wounds and as a thickener for raising blood volume in blood transfusions. Pectin was used as an emulsifier for petroleum, gelatized gasoline for fire bombing. By supplying the Wehrmacht, Otto Frank became, in the eyes of the Dutch, a Nazi collaborator. 

On July 6, 1942 Otto moved the Frank family into the so-called 'Secret Annex'. The annex is a three story, mostly glass townhouse that shares a garden park with fifty other apartments. 

While he was allegedly in hiding, Otto Frank still managed his business, going downstairs to his office at night and on weekends. Anne and the others would go to Otto's office and listen to radio broadcasts from England. 

The purported diary begins on June 12, 1942, and runs to December 5,1942 . It consists of a book that is six by four by a quarter inches. In addition to this first diary, Anne supplemented it with personal letters. Otto said Anne heard Gerrit Bolkestein in a broadcast say: ~ "Keep a diary, and he would publish after the war", and that's why Anne’s father claimed she rewrote her diaries second time in 1944. 

In this second edition, the new writer changed, rearranged and occasionally combined entries of various dates. 

When Anne allegedly rewrote the diaries, she used a ball point pen, which did not exist in 1945, and the book took on an extremely high literary standard, and read more like a professional documentary than a child's diary. In Anne's second edition her writing style, and handwriting, suddenly matured. 

The actual diary of Anne Frank contained only about 150 notes, according to The New York Times, of October 2 ,1955. 

In 1944, German authorities in occupied Holland determined that Otto Frank had been swindling then via his extensive and very lucrative Wehrmacht contracts. The German police then raided his apartment attic, and the eight Jews were sent to Westerbork work camp and forced to perform manual labor .Otto himself was sent to Auschwitz.. Anne, her sister Margot, and her mother, subsequently died of typhus in another camp.

If they keep sending all this gas to Europe they will have to pay people to burn it !

Now that Lithuania is drinking Kool-Aid by buying US LNG and ignoring cheaper Russian pipeline gas it seems governments are determined to make energy costs economically unviable to serve political goals. Gas is ridiculously expensive in UK which is building LNG terminals to import from Qatar which means people buy wood burners and blast fine particles into the atmosphere instead.

Enviva’s Wood Pellet Mill in Ahoskie, North Carolina Threatens Endangered Ecosystems and Wildlife

Conversions of large coal-burning power plants to wood (co-)firing in Europe have resulted in the explosive growth of wood pellet exports from North America, most of which originate in the forests of the southern United States. Enviva, the South’s largest exporter of wood pellets, currently leads this market and has some of the most biologically diverse and valuable forest ecosystems in the world in its crosshairs. The Wall Street Journal has documented that Enviva, the South’s largest exporter of wood pellets, sources wood for its pellet-manufacturing mill in Ahoskie, North Carolina, from clearcut wetland forests in the Mid-Atlantic Coastal ecoregion.1 This mill produces approximately 400,000 tons of wood pellets per year for export to Europe as fuel for electricity.

"Here is a quote from the Los Angeles Times from Joel Stein, “I don’t care if Americans think we’re [Jews] running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we [Jews] get to keep running them.”"

The more lies that appear in the Anglo-Zionist FAKE NEWS Media the more I doubt all of their reportage including that about the Holocaust. After all, eventually no one believes anything that a habitual liar says. So, if their goal is the delegitimization of Israel they are doing a great job.

Speaking of censorship greg...

I've been noticing increasingly that Langley is doing a better job of screening news organization(s) that don't carry their "meme"/brand?

Case in point, stories like this one ( or this one ( where you can't bring up the videos of women and children getting bombed to death in a Country the U.S. military isn't supposed to be in in the first place!

Let me know if anyone out there is having the same problems running that RT video now won't you?... The news organization that John Kerry branded as a "propaganda organ" some years back while he was killing those very people from that Country and the American people as they do now -did "NOTHING"!

I doubt that RT is too cheap to buy bandwidth. (Stalling even though preloaded actually, so it's not the bandwidth or speed.)

You will note I have never dropped too many RT links at all here. ... There's a reason.

It's time for zerohedge to get out of the Anti-Semitism business.

HRClinton's picture

Given that ALL of Israel's neighbors and Palestinians are MORE Semitic by blood, your claim of "Semitism" is hokey, if not laughable.

You're on a site, where the bloggers are far more informed than 99.9% on the topic of Semitism.

Ergo, we are mostly pro-Semite (pro Palestinian rights), but opposed to Zionist/Zionut carpet baggers, who not only pretend to be more Semitic than they are, but (get this) have the gall to "represent Semites".  ROTF, LMAO. 

If you knew anything and were as keen on academic research as some of us here (like me), then you'd know that:

1.  ~80-90% of those who self-identify as "Jews" are Ashkenazi Jews. They are the ones who hold all the positions of Jewish wealth, power and influence. 

2.  Sephardic Jews are 10%, but used to be 90% in the Dark and Middle Ages.

3.  Ashkenazi Jews had several Genetic Bottlenecks, when their population dwindled sharply. During the last Bottleneck (~700 AD) their numbers collapsed to a stunning 350 people. That's right: Three Hundred Fifty souls.

After this Darwinian culling and subsequent re-invention, they multiplied like rabbits.  They also changed their Darwinian Adaption, Grand Vision and Grand Plan: less Moses, more Babylonian Talmud.

Their most impressive comeback aside, these "Descendants of Prolific Inbreeders" are now wrapped in the cloak of Jews and Semites.

Nice try, Bimbo Baggins, but peddle your ADL catch phrases elsewhere, where the Audience is far less informed and easier to bamboozle.

Annnndddd you're a nut case. The article is about Jews protesting toxins by Jews enforcing it. The anti is pollution. D'oh. 

You see cupcake, you can't just randomly use anti semitism to discredit something or someone. It has to at very minimum need to be contextual.

By the way for the record and something for you to feed on. Jews in Israel are ANTISEMITES. The apartied state has Palestinians as second rate citizens and stolen their land and house in the name of expansion. There is your definition of anti semitism.  

"George Friedmann in his book, The End of the Jewish People, pointedly states that the Europeans claiming to be Jews, are nothing more then "Hebrew speaking Gentiles." The late president of Egypt, Gamal Abdel Nasser, stated on television, "you (the Jews) will never be able to live here in peace, because you left here black but came back white. We cannot except you! "

You see this is why I advocate being blunt and direct and say anything you want to about them, that you deem as true. Because you get flagged anyway, regardless of if your post is rational and constructive or not. So why to be careful and constructive at all, just call them for what they are. Anything you think about them, say it right in their face. You are marked anti semitic and racist already, you may as well act as one towards them, it was their call.

Nice write up h_h.   Interesting that if Israel wanted to just drop the pipe to Turkey in the sea, it could be done cheap and easy.  Except for Cyprus.  So why not just whack little Cyprus instead of Syria?  I guess that is where the alignment w/ Kuwait, SA, Golan developers, the anti-Iranians, Wolfowitz disciples, Sorosites, and all the rest come in.  Just destroy a country.


Speaking of pipelines...and the "new" US position on staying in Afghanistan...

Why Trump's recent sharp words for Afg and Paki?  With the TAPI pipeline ready to move forward through the "A" and "P" regions of T.A.P.I., now would not be the time to risk it to the Taliban, who control about 50% of the country, and who nixed it pre-9/11.

Of course, some folks never believed the US was ever planning to leave.  What a surprise.

"We know that the Israelis used American "bunker-buster" bombs on Hizbollah's Beirut headquarters. We know that they drenched southern Lebanon with cluster bombs in the last 72 hours of the war, leaving tens of thousands of bomblets which are still killing Lebanese civilians every week. And we now know - after it first categorically denied using such munitions - that the Israeli army also used phosphorous bombs, weapons which are supposed to be restricted under the third protocol of the Geneva Conventions, which neither Israel nor the United States have signed."

"Depleted uranium" is just a lie. Theoretically tungsten shafts should be just as effective. The truth is they use "REPLETED" (enriched) uranium slugs that undergo fission when they impact solid obstacles. They are tiny nuclear bombs.
