A few questions for Dr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: Basting Turkey's New Prime Minister

Dr Pipes:

Do you see the eventual construction of a natural gas pipeline between Israel and Turkey? If so, how far off is an agreement to build one? Is it politically practical?

If not, what alternatives does Israel have for exporting natural gas? I see this becoming more strategically important in wake of events in Russia and Ukraine.

Maybe some other readers have some insight on this issue.

I do not see a pipeline going from Cyprus and Israel through Turkey. There are plenty of alternatives.
