#3 By about mid 2014, Israel will have enough natural gas online from the Tamar and Liviathon fields to be able to sell some to Egypt.

That will be special.

maybe they will break up into upper and lower Egypt again - like before the 1st dynasty

or maybe they will be overrun by Hyksos or Sea Peoples

#7 Garth, I would imagine that having the evil Jooooz selling natural gas to the Egyptians would cause heads to explode all around the Middle East. For that reason alone I favor it.

But I don't think it'll happen, because by 2014 I expect Egypt to have slid into anarchy, near genocide against the Copts, and (perhaps) a war with Israel.

#9 I'd love to have the Israel-to-Egypt gas pipeline repair business monopoly there. Job security and a guaranteed stream of income
