Did you read the link? Israel has not paid for its fuel this year, giving the company concerned a perfect opportunity to cancel a contract that should
never have been agreed at that price in the first place (and for which someone is under investigation).
The Egyptian company was, in effect, being ripped off twice by Israel - first by the deal and then by non payment. Good for them i say.
I did. I was responding to the blind hate speak "bully, screw the israelis" posts. Yes Israel cut itself a good deal, yes it was agreed to by both
parties. Now it is no longer agreeable to both parties and the deal was dissolved. But the "lets F*** Israel" is classic. If I dropped any one of
you in Ramala you would change your tune real quick.
Did aid work in Ramala when i first left university. Well aware of the situation there, thanks. Totally disgusting place and, frankly, a blight on
Israel's reputation globally. Also came across plenty of good work and initiatives that were being undertaken by Israeli's and Jewish organisations,
so works both ways.......(not all negative by a long stretch).
Have to say though, not being back since and that was years ago (pre Palestinian State - the one Israel doesn't recognise). Things could have changed
drastically "on the ground" since i was there..........
It is like you say, i hate the screw Israel posts too. Just as much as i hate the pro Israel posts (whatever they do). Surely rational people look at
each situation on merit? If Israel is in the right on a particular topic then good luck to them. When they are in the wrong though, you would also
expect people to accept they are in the wrong, providing they are of rational mind.
