Israel Grants First Golan Heights Oil Drilling License To Dick Cheney-Linked Company

The truth is coming out. Israel has granted a U.S. company the first license to explore for oil and gas in the occupied Golan Heights.

A local subsidiary of the New York-listed company Genie Energy — which is advised by former vice president Dick Cheney and whose shareholders include Jacob Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch — will now have exclusive rights to a 153-square mile radius in the southern part of the Golan Heights.




That geographic location will likely prove controversial. Israel seized the Golan Heights in the Six-Day War in 1967 and annexed the territory in 1981. Its administration of the area — which is not recognized by international law — has been mostly peaceful until the Syrian civil war broke out 23 months ago.

Yaron Ezrahi, an Israeli political analyst, said:
“This action is mostly political – it’s an attempt to deepen Israeli commitment to the occupied Golan Heights. The timing is directly related to the fact that the Syrian government is dealing with violence and chaos and is not free to deal with this problem.”

isn't it funny how these things happen, but Cheney sympathizers/deniers will say "correlation does not prove causation", just like with all the Halliburton contracts. But I think a LOT of people know how scummy and corrupt Cheney is

All I can say is that the land belongs to Israel and there isn't anything that
can be done about it.

That is the type of declarations that leed's this corrupt world to war on a galloping farse called "peace process". Shameful people and leaders who do not practice what they preech. It's a bunch of hypocrits them and those who stand beside this.

Much as I hate Cheney, this company is getting good value from his consultant's fees. Israel has de facto control of the area, and by getting international businesses invested there, it can create pressure for it to be accepted de jure.

And this was all because of black gold.
