Secret gas prices in Egypt's deal with Israel

Not much to say. The Egyptians keep blowing up the pipeline. When they get to vote on it they won't have to blow it up any more.
Egyptian authorities have kept gas export prices to Israel confidential. Local media estimate between 70 cents and $1.50 per million British gas units (BTUs, or British thermal units) whereas Israeli media cite a higher price of $2.50 to $4 per million BTUs.
Secret gas prices? This is what it means to be a dictatorship that is part of the US/Zionist colonial structure that includes Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan, Kuwait and others.

Just a humiliation of the 80 million people of Egypt for the sake of the 5.7 million Jewish people of Palestine.

.70-1.50 per BTU? That's almost $3 bellow market rate:

If this turns out to be true, Mubarak should be hanged and Israel's embassy in Egypt should be shutdown.

Maybe that's why Israel has the Dimona reactor for making nuclear weapons, but no civilian nuclear power. With subsidized gas like that, it doesn't need it.

I find it fascinating when people say Iran should change "regime" to a more "Western" friendly one. Either these people are so naive or malicious that they overlook/conceal the kind of secret "bargains" Iran would have to accept.

Arnold, what's your take on Pakistan? It looks like it's going downhill from here on.

Didn't Iran under the Shah not do so badly though, in purely economic terms that is?

It certainly wasn't anything like as pathetic as the US-backed Arab puppet regimes...
