By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Every once in a while you hear or read about crazy idea.
Like this: EU representative and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair together with US Secretary of State
John Kerry are suggesting that the Palestinians drill for oil. The two leaders drew up the initiative and now, together with the Palestinian Authority, they are seeking proposals for oil exploration.
What were they thinking? The area that the Palestinian Authority plans to explore covers 155 square miles - and most of it is in Israeli controlled land. According to all previous agreements as well as the location for the exploration, the process would require Israel's agreement.
Why are Blair and Kerry involved? What company would dump money into this exploration? Has no one asked for the research?
There have already been a large number of exploration surveys and viability studies. And all the research has determined that there is no energy profit to be made in the West Bank and that part of Israel.
Crazy and dangerous. Blair and Kerry have just created and opened up another Pandora's Box of strife and controversy between the PA and Israel.
