Netanyahu signs controversial natural gas deal

Prophecy Sign:  Israel will be blessed with new found riches in the last days

In an almost prophetic utterance, Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu declared to his nation just why his nation has suddenly become a world player on the energy front;  Because God gave those riches to his nation in order for Israel to become a force on the international stage.

Bible prophecy foretold of such a time as this:

I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. Isaiah 45:3 NIV

Netanyahu signs controversial natural gas deal
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu signed Israel's multibillion dollar gas deal with US energy giant Noble Energy Thursday morning, following months of intense debate. Netanyahu gave his signature to the deal at the conclusion of a special ceremony at the Ne'ot Hovav industrial zone in southern Israel, following speeches by Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz (Likud) and Manufacturers Association of Israel President Shraga Brosh. Both Steinitz and Brosh lauded the deal, saying it would make energy prices cheaper for Israelis.

Netanyahu himself praised the long-fought deal as a "victory over populism," referring to opponents who fought a bitter campaign against what they said was the government's stamp of approval to a new monopoly. The prime minister repeated his previous assertion that Israel needed to expedite the process to enable the country to benefit from an unprecedented deposit of natural gas worth billions of dollars, and which would make Israel "energy independent." "The gas was given to us as a gift from God," he said prior to signing the deal. "He gave us huge gas reserves and turned us into an important force on the international front."
