The Muslim Brotherhood is dismayed by the government’s decision to export gas to Israel at reduced prices at the time when Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) are committing daily massacres against the Palestinian people and the besieged Gaza strip.
The MB completely rejects this step which allows Israeli Settlers to benefit from Egypt’s resources. Therefore, we emphasize the following,
First: Egypt’s natural wealth is owned by all Egyptians either in the present or future. No one should be allowed to exploit our wealth according to his desires or for his private interests.
Second: Instead of providing Israeli settlers with low-price gas, the real prices of gas should have been used in solving the daily sufferings of the Egyptian people including the bread crisis, price hikes, education, and medical care.
Third: Protecting Egypt’s national security necessitates that the regime stops gas supplies to the IOF which were complicit in the killing of innocent Palestinians and burying our war prisoners alive in 1956, 1967, and 1973 wars. The IOF still threaten our national security through possessing mass destructive weapons.
Fourth: What has been declared in the People’s Assembly by the regime is blatant disrespect of people’s minds. If an Egyptian company has signed a contract to export gas to the Israel, this can easily be corrected through immediately ending the contract without any alleged violation of international treaties or laws.
Fifth: Joint Arab Defense Treaty obligates the Egyptian government to export surplus gas to Palestine to be used in supplying power and fuel necessary for Palestinian lives especially that they suffer from a deadly siege and continuous aggression by Israeli Occupation Forces.
Based on the above, the MB calls upon all national forces as well as the Egyptian people to declare their discontent and refusal of such a flagrant decision. We also call on parliamentarians to move swiftly and effectively towards the cancellation of this contract (if there’s any), stop the gas supply to the IOF, and export it instead to other countries at standard world prices. This will save billions of dollars to be added to the state’s general budget to solve some of the citizen’s chronic problems.

HIZBALLAH WILL SOON DO THE SAME THING ON THEIR BORDER WITH ISRAEL:
ALL THIS IS AT THE BEHEST OF IRAN AND IN THE NAME OF GLOBAL JIHAD.
Next Flashpoint in Mideast Could Be Gas Fields Off Mediterranean Coast
Dispute With Lebanon Could Be Ignited
The next flashpoint in the Middle East could be the gas fields off Israel's Mediterranean coast, where the discovery of large cashes of natural gas is raising hopes that Israel could soon become energy-self-sufficient but where a dispute with Lebanon could be ignited.
The Iran-influenced Beirut government is threatening to defend its maritime “rights” and is complaining about Israel’s explorations. Lebanon’s appeals for international intervention begun last summer, immediately after Israel’s off shore gas explorations showed signs of positive results. Now that years of exploration have yielded what some energy experts estimate to be the world’s largest deepwater gas discovery in a decade, Beirut is raising the tone of its demands.
Lebanon’s foreign minister, Ali Shami, in a letter to Secretary General Ban, demanded the United Nations assure that “Israel does not exploit Lebanon’s marine and oil wealth, which lies within its exclusive economic zone.” Last June a Shiite politician with ties to Hezbollah, Nabih Berri, speaker of the parliament at Beirut, asserted that Israel’s newly-discovered gas was actually found in Lebanon’s territorial waters.The United Nations is to date unwilling to intervene, but today it added to the confusion by saying Israel “unilaterally” delineated its maritime border with Lebanon.
AND - BECAUSE OBAMA IS DITHERING AND APPEASING THE ENEMY - THE PACE WILL ONLY INCREASE.
BETTER BRACE YOURSELVES...
