Israeli gas

by ray goodlass

I’ve been sick lately, with shingles, and therefor silent over the last few days, but am prompted back to the keyboard after news that Israel is now pumping gas from its Mediterranean (Tamar) gas field. What will be the ramifications for Palestine, denied access by Israel to any part of its nearby Mediterranean coast? There are wider geo-political ramifications in the region, of course, but as Palestine is denied so much by Israel, and is consequently resource poor, it is my main concern. There may be an upside, in that it might mean cheaper electricity for Palestine, but somehow I have my doubts.
