In 2010 Israel discovered in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) the existence of large natural gas deposits. At the same time, a new chapter began in Israeli energy policy. A policy that has had deadly results for the Eastern Mediterranean, the first glimpse into the geopolitical chaos it seeks to create began in Syria in 2011, as U.S., Israeli and Turkish backed Islamic extremist mercenaries brought about the eruption of a bloody civil war.
The discovery in 2010 of these deposits in Israel’s EEZ, the Levant Basin, created new interests for Israel. The deposit is localed 130 kilometers west of the port of Haifa, at a depth of about 5 km, and was named Leviathan after the mythological monster of the Old Testament, perhaps as a reminder of the monstrous behavior of Israel towards its neighbors. In collaboration with Texas-based company Noble Energy, it was announced that this deposit contains approximately 500 billion cubic meters of natural gas. In order to understand the magnitude of this discovery, this deposit can cover Israel’s energy needs for the next hundred years.
Since its establishment in 1948, the Israeli state has struggled with energy self-sufficiency, unlike their neighbors who are literally swimming in oil. Israel has for years, in vain, tried to find hydrocarbon reserves, until finally in 2009 Noble Energy discovered the Tamar, about 40 miles west of Haifa. The Tamar contains 250 billion cubic meters of natural gas of impeccable quality. Shortly after, in 2010, they discovered the Leviathan reserves, which alongside Tamar constitute the largest offshore deposits of natural gas discovered in the last decade.
The American company Noble Energy, in conjunction with Israeli companies, dominate the Levantine Basin and will control the exploitation of mineral deposits off the coast of Cyprus as long as we are governed by the employees of world usury. The deposits off the shores of Greece could also be great and fall into the same destiny of loss of control of Greek resources by the Greek people. The same people who control the Levantine Basin deposits also control the deposits of Cyprus. The consortium group, called Delek, belongs to Jewish billionaire Yitzhak Tshuva, and Noble Energy unites the two together with royalties from gas taken from Cyprus and possibly in the future, Greece. The joint venture is 64% Israeli owned and 36% owned by Noble Energy. The same business alliance has undertaken the construction of the natural gas liquefier in Cyprus worth approximately 10 billion dollars.
The fact that Israeli and American companies are planning to take substantial royalties from Cypriot exploration should make it obvious that the recent string of events are not random. These companies took interest in Cyprus shortly before the banking crisis, which razed Russian investments and made Russian companies who once had headquarters in Cyprus unwelcome. The crisis brought Anastasiadis, a sponsor and celebrator of the Turkish backed Annan plan which will essentially deliver Cyprus to Turkey and the United States. Anastasiadis is virtually an EU yes-man who is unquestionably obedient to the ruling Christian Democrats (CDU) in Germany. The ascent to power of this individual essentially removed competition from Russia and Gazprom from the island, and gave a monopoly of natural gas contracts to Israelis and Noble Energy. The goal is for Israel to control the exploitation of natural gas within its own borders but also Cyprus, in order to isolate and destroy the competitive Russian Gazprom in the EU gas market.
The hidden Russian-Israeli energy conflict was on full display with the Syrian crisis, and important things hinge depending on the future of this state. In 2011, shortly before the outbreak of Jihadists in Syria, Assad made an agreement with Iraq and Iran to build an oil pipeline that would link these countries with Syria as the final port. Financing for this project came from Russia. The agreement was signed literally weeks before NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel sent guerillas into Syria to disrupt the development of this agreement. The three year crisis and freeze on development because of this in Syria has given a highly beneficial head-start to Israeli energy projects, as well as its energy-related geopolitical aspirations.
After getting Cyprus, Jewish and American companies are almost certain to get their hands on the heavy royalties reaped from the hydrocarbon deposits in Greece, at least in those areas that aren’t “challenged” by Israel’s ally Turkey, many the deposits located south of Crete. The artificially created economic crisis in Cyprus led to a hastening of the mineral deposit exploitation given to the Israelis, who supposedly provide coverage and defense. After seeing what happened in Cyprus, it is only logical that Greece and the Greek natural gas deposits are very vulnerable to falling into the hands of Israeli and American joint ventures. Don’t forget that the IMF is fully controlled by the United States Treasury, which is in full control of the Israeli lobby , as well as the fact that 80% of hydrocarbon pipelines worldwide are under the control of Jewish and American capital.
The defense cooperation and aerial coverage agreement between Israel and Cyprus makes it clear that Israel’s only promise to corrupt Cypriot politicians was not to protect the island militarily, but actually to protect the Israeli owned platform pumping gas in the south of Cyprus’ EEZ. Any similar “defense” agreement between Israelis and the treacherous, kleptocratic government of Greece will also not protect Greeks from Turkish military aggression, but instead serves only to protect Israeli financial interests arising from hydrocarbon operations of the Greek EEZ, and simultaneously have strategic hegemony in a very small space with a lot of interests.
While we get nothing, the “defense” cooperation between Cyprus and Israel, and Greece and Israel, has guaranteed both Greek states are tied hand and foot to the reckless and aggressive warmongering chariot of America and Israel in the region. The Israeli agreement seeks this economic cooperation because it benefits from a weak and isolated Greece and Cyprus. The medium and long term interests of Greece and Cyprus in the geopolitics of the Eastern Mediterranean should instead seek a better deal from historically friendly countries and more ethical peoples, and economically emerging nations, such as Russia.
The natural resources of Greece and Cyprus are a strategic area for the future of Hellenism and the geopolitical goodwill of this strategic area should be used to regain the sovereignty and self-determination of the Greek people, not the continued domination of international usurers. A prerequisite for the benefit of the Greek people in the exploration of natural gas in the EEZ of Cyprus and Greece is throwing off all colonial geopolitical memorandums, or any other conditions that does not put Greece on an equal level with nations interested in energy cooperation. There is no reason why a nation of 8 million like Israel should exercise such control over Greek resources, much less monopolize the natural gas in the entire region!
The military agreements with Israel and geopolitical submission to Zionist occupied America does nothing but harm the people of Greece, and those who accept and sign without thinking of their own people first are nothing but traitors.
