Egyptian saboteurs again blew the gas pipeline leading through Sinai to Israel. After the March repairs, the pipeline carried a token amount of gas to Israel to satisfy both the Americans and the Egyptian opposition.

The issue of Egyptian gas supply is economically irrelevant to Israel because our consumers pay world-market prices for the gas consumed at Israeli power stations. The entire conflict is over the profits of a well-connected corporation which procured gas in Egypt deeply below market prices.

We either annex Sinai, the land God gave to us, with its oil and gas fields, or do not contest the Egyptian right for a fair price for what is not its gas.
