Egypt-Israel Gas Deal

The contract for Egypt to deliver natural gas to Israel is now ended, and it will not be revived any time soon.

A peace treaty was signed 33 years ago between Egypt and Israel: that is a generation, and it should have been plenty of time to get a good start on a new generation of people believing in peace and amity on both sides.

Instead, we have allowed the Palestinian question to fester and go from bad to worse.

We have wasted the passage of time to promote new attitudes, and instead have exacerbated the old, bad attitudes: a complete failure of policy.
