Group: Don't Sell Gas to Israel


Top officials in Egypt's main gas exporter said Sunday that it was likely that repairs on the pipeline that brings gas to Israel and Jordan would take “a long time.” The pipeline was severely damaged last week in yet another terrorist attack on a target that has become a favorite of anti-Israel groups in Sinai.

In the same vein, a group calling itself “the Sinai Youth Movement” said it would stage a protest outside the gas company's headquarters Sunday demanding that the company break its contract to supply gas to Israel, and refuse to deliver gas to Israel, even after the line is repaired.
