Israel’s Stake in the Egyptian Natural Gas Pipeline: Strategic and Economic Benefits
On February 19, 2018, the Israeli-American consortium that owns natural gas concessions in Israel’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ), including gas fields Tamar and Leviathan, announced an agreement with the Egyptian Delphinus company. According to the agreement, estimated at $15 billion, an annual 3.5 BCM will be sold from each field, beginning in 2019. As such, Tamar, which is already active, and Leviathan, are together to supply 64 BCM over the next decade.

Russia raises the stakes in Syria

Russia raises the stakes in Syria, S-300 surface-to-air missiles
Russia’s sudden deployment of S-300 surface-to-air missiles in Syria last week raised the stakes in Syria significantly for the U.S. and Israel.

While it is easy to conclude things have become far more dangerous, the fact is that there are certain important aspects of the situation on the ground that we just don’t know.

Moreover, Sen. James Lankford visited Turkey in December 2017 to meet with their Ministry of Justice officials to advocate for the release of Pastor Brunson.

Turkish court orders Pastor Andrew Brunson released; Trump says he should be home soon
This is about the best news we could have ended the week with.

This has a January 20, 1980 sort of feel to it – we’ll believe it when the plane touches down on non-hostile territory – but it appears Pastor Andrew Brunson is finally about to come home from his unjust, political captivity in Turkey.

Trump rejects UN and UNESCO’s fictitious Palestinian state

Trump rejects UN and UNESCO's fictitious Palestinian state
President Trump’s National Security Adviser - John Bolton - has exposed the fiction that there is a legally-constituted “State of Palestine”—shredding United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and United Nations (UN) resolutions misleadingly recognising such a state when none - in fact—exists.

UN ‘court’: America is treaty-bound to end sanctions on Iran! U.S.: Here’s what we think of that treaty
It’s about time we had a U.S. administration that not only thumbs its nose at the UN’s nonsense, but also refuses to countenance the idiotic notion that the UN has any legitimacy in the first place.

International Court of Justice Unjustly Sides with Iran
The last thing that will deter President Trump from following through with his sanctions program against the Iranian regime is a bogus ruling by an unaccountable globalist governance body based on a treaty that is no longer valid

Trump's PLO shutdown paves way for Jordan-West Bank reunification

President Trump’s decision to close the PLO mission in Washington, cancel the visas of the Palestinian Ambassador and his family and order their bank accounts be closed - mark the PLO’s final humiliation for condemning Trump’s proposed peace plan before its contents have even been published.

Strangely however the United States still maintains that direct negotiations between Israel and the PLO are the only way forward.

They don’t say it this way, of course. The voters of Great Britain rendered their verdict back in 2016, much to the dismay of the political class in the UK and throughout Europe, and British politicians still feel the need to give lip service to “respecting the will of the people.”

How Trump’s exit from the nuclear deal is already putting the hurt on Iran

How Trump’s exit from the nuclear deal is already putting the hurt on Iran
There was some doubt – and I harbored some myself – that the U.S. pulling out unilaterally from the Iran nuclear deal would really put any meaningful pressure on Iran.

The deal was between six countries, and even if U.S. companies were not able to do business with Iran, those in the others still seemed eager to do so. Even if the U.S. could freeze Iran’s remaining assets, they could probably find a way to get at them by laundering them through other countries.
