Netanyahu made the right move

Reader comment on item: An Israeli Gas Pipeline to Turkey? Bad Idea
in response to reader comment: Don't point to foul play when sheer stupidity will do

Hi, Anon. You said,

"Note that Avigdor Liberman has warned such a deal would endanger good relations with Russia, Greece and Cyprus."

Yeah, well they just got as sour as can be:

Greek parliament votes to recognise Palestinian state

Russia to start building Iran nuclear reactors

Neither do things look good with Egypt:

Egypt rejects $257M natural gas deal with Israel

With Cyprus, there's an up side:

Turkey-Israel warming could benefit Cyprus natgas

As usual, it looks as though Netanyahu made the right move. Right now, Hizbullah and Iran are the greatest threat to Israel; and the massive Russian presence so close to Israel is not making the area any safer.
