Energy wars: ‘massive’ oil discovery in Israel

Energy wars: ‘massive’ oil discovery in Israel

by Jon Rappoport

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)

For decades, Israel has been searching for oil in its own lands, with the hope of gaining energy independence.

Recent reports from Genie, a US oil-exploration company, suggest oil has been found in Israel. Lots of it.

Cautionary statements from experts have followed: there is a difference between oil in the ground and oil that can be brought to the surface cost-effectively.

And as long as OPEC oil-exporting nations are setting a very low price per barrel, bringing Israeli oil to the surface would be more difficult, financially speaking.

The oil is actually in the Golan Heights, which was taken by Israel, from Syria, in the 1967 war. The ownership of the area is still contested. (Haaretz: “Genie Confirms Report of Possible Big Golan Oil Find,” Oct 11, 2015)

However, given the current war in Syria and the massive chaos there, Syria would certainly be less likely to challenge Israel’s oil claim with meaningful force. Is the Syrian-war escalation in part an effort to pave the way for Israeli oil?

If the initial celebratory announcements about how much oil is under the ground, in Golan, are correct, Israel could be looking at a long-sought, massive upswing in its domestic energy capability.

That’s not all. Genie, the US company that is doing the drilling-exploration in Golan, has some very interesting characters on its strategic advisory board—men who can exert influence on all sorts of geo-political operations.

For example, Rupert Murdoch; and Jacob Rothschild, the chairman of the Rothschild Foundation and the J Rothschild group of companies.

For example, ex-CIA director James Woolsey.

And Dick Cheney.

And Lawrence Summers, former president of Harvard University, former Secretary of the Treasury under Bill Clinton, director of the National Economic Council under Obama. (Will we see the involvement of the Harvard Endowment Fund in this Israeli oil operation?)

And Bill Richardson, former Secretary of Energy under Bill Clinton.

Who would obtain a license to bring up all this oil? Afek Israel Oil and Gas, which is a subsidiary of Genie, for whom the above-mentioned men serve as advisors. In fact, we have this from Genie’s website:

“Afek is characterizing a potentially significant oil and gas resource in Northern Israel pursuant to an exclusive, 3 year petroleum exploration license issued by the government of Israel.”

Mint Press News reports, in “Israel Takes Advantage Of Syrian Civil War To Expand Illegal Golan Heights Settlements,” Oct 13, 2015:

“Israel is taking advantage of the chaos in Syria to expand its illegal settlements in the Golan Heights, just as new oil reserves were discovered in the contested region… Now, Israel hopes to quintuple the size of its settlements over the next five years by adding an additional 100,000 settlers to the region. The plan was proposed by Naftali Bennett, a senior Israeli minister and member of the right-wing Jewish Home party, and, according to a report from The New York Times last week, Bennett is just one of ‘many Israeli leaders and thinkers seizing on the chaos in Syria to solidify Israel’s hold on the Golan.’”

the matrix revealed

Seizing on the chaos, after the fact? Or promoting and instigating the chaos in the first place, in order to clamp down on the Golan, with oil as the ultimate prize?

Exactly how long ago did the Genie people actually know there was oil under the Golan? Did they delay their announcement, to make it seem as if the Syrian escalation was just an unrelated coincidence?

Depending on the size of the oil find under the Golan, the whole configuration of oil-control in the Middle East could be affected. Who has it, who owns it, who sells it, who buys it, and who sets the price.

Israel’s apparent long-term plan to weaken and disable nations in the Middle East, including Syria, could certainly raise the price of oil from that region, making it cost-effective to bring up all the oil under Golan—however many barrels that turns out to be.

Putin’s recent attacks on Syria also involve an effort to jack up oil prices by “increasing uncertainty” in the region. Long term, Putin wants to extend his influence in the Middle East (e.g., Iran and Iraq), hopefully allowing him to keep oil prices at a level that would bring rescue to the Russian economy, which, as an oil exporter, has been languishing under low-cost oil.

Everybody and his brother wants a piece of the pie. As usual, war is a strategy for getting it, while the war-makers suppress actual (not fake) energy alternatives.

These psychopaths always favor destruction to solutions that can bring tranquility and abundance.

    Hello Jon, Energy alternatives are abundant. Let us first go into a transition phase by drastically improving the Internal combustion Engine fuel consumption by at least a factor 3 to 5. Logic says this will lower the emissions in the range of a factor 3 to 5. Tests will show I am roughly right. I improved my car running between 12 to 14 kilometers per liter, it is now running 15 to 17 kilometers per liter. Emissions have decreased. There is so many Internal Combustion Engines around, this is the fastest approach to achieve drastic emission reduction. The powers that be and the State Treasury are not amused by this idea. They do not want to solve the problem, because the State Treasury for instance gets into real trouble. They get less tax income from the excises on the fuel cost. Even then: ICE drastic fuel consumption reduction is our only short term chance. Let us start with that. Regarding the Israeli oil find. If this really is a feasible oil field enabling some Israeli Company to exploit it cost effectively it just makes the Israelis independant of oil from other sources. That is all. First of all they have to be able to process the oil fuels. I wonder where they will do that and how. What about the big gas reserves found in the coastal area of Palestine? This find would one of the reasons the UN has started to send out signals the Palestinians ought to be given a new life in Europe. Groet, Jan Ligthart

    Its about keeping the petro-dollar Ponzi scheme going as long as they can. They hope to repace that with a new scam based on ‘carbon credits’. This gang has Humanity by the throat – well actually by the Mind. We provide the hands (police & military) to grab our own throats.

    Its always fascinating when you blow away the smoke around just about any major historical event that involves massive death through war, displacement of civilians, massive money transfers, violent transitions in national and global policies etc … and you discover the same short list of names and organizations that keep popping up at the heart of all of them.

    Ah… ‘Genie’, ‘Oil’, the only noun missing is ‘lamp’…and someone to rub the oil lamp ever so gently, make three wishes… and Ala Gazam, Ala Gazoom poof…

    Would I be out-of-place to extrapolate that if Israel becomes an oil-producing nation. Then they would rally; if they could speed on, full whip; towards becoming an exporting oil nation. Which could be arranged ever so easily with Amerika being an importer of Israeli oil.
    Even if exports were low, as compared to the greater amounts of the other oil export nations.
    And the requirements for OPEC membership.

    And so Israel could apply for membership to OPEC; which has over 80% of the world’s proven reserves of oil.

    Incidently, technology for drilling oil makes it easy with ‘Directional drilling’ technology to drill under the border of a neighbouring nation, like…say… Syria.

    The nation is enthralled in Civil War…should we call it that?…hmm… so the parasite draws on existing reserves without defense of such, destroying the reserves.

    Since the Russian/American proxy war escalation, can keep Syria’s and for that fact Russia’s/Assad’s focus elsewhere.

    Seems far too coincidental now the Syrian/Russian/American cluster boing.
    This war must be costing Assad, Billions.

    Almost implies pre-planning; and possibly Russia’s entry into the Syrian fiasco so swiftly, forced the hand of Israel to shorten the time period till their endgame.

    And if suppose Israel’s path towards membership in OPEC is un-impeded, then the Zionist lust for expansionism could be exercised from within OPEC.

    Dominance of OPEC is within Israel’s reach; with the Secretary General of OPEC being Abdalla Salem el-Badri, a citizen of Libya, educated in the USA, he is a student of Exxon Mobil; he is the recipient of the 2013 Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Energy Award for the Lifetime Achievement for the Contribution to the Advancement of OPEC…which is a Saudi inspire, Qatar controlled award.
    Sort of a Noble prize of Oil for despots…they really need gold stars on the top pages of their homework.

    Abdalla was Gaddafi’s man and Gaddafi was the CIA’s man; Gaddafi became a loose cannon, until Arab spring ended his purification, and coming way from the dark side.

    So Abdalla knows what happens personally when the one does not abide by the Masonic oath.

    It is not below Israel and the US to usurp the lead chair by replacing Abdalla of OPEC, if he does not behave. Or has an unfortunate cancer, or accident.

    Bringing Israel and its Golem, America in control of; or excising greater manipulation of, those vast reserves, as each OPEC member is far too weak standing alone against such political might as Israel and Amerika.

    Seems they are waging war on so many fronts. Make it hard to keep track of the real game, and real players.
    Unless one is paying close attention.

    The Americans already have control of Iraq oil, and should be considered a OPEC member; Kuwait owes them big time, and is an Ace in the hole ( After Papa Bush hauled their ass out of the fire…against Saddam.), and Libya virtually is in American hands; Syria is being fought over as we speak; the ‘House of Saud’ has always been a corrupted vassal of America and obeys.
    The State of Qatar is an isolated small country that does the bidding of its older cousin Saud.
    Nigeria is an American vassal. And so on…and so on.

    Divide and conquer, on so many fronts, geo-political, war, economic and climate, this is quite a house of cards they are building, temporary structures tend to blow down with pressure applied in just the right place; they are so predictable, these bastards.

    I think their lust, gluttony is their Achilles.

    As for the weather forecast, I suspect it will be a nice winter in North America, as Weather Wars will be in Russia this year.

  5. BDBinc says:

    If the deliberate escalation to ww3 is not about escalation to ww3, but about this oil (and its not radical propaganda) then you would have to say the left media made bombing “hero” Putin is in on it and after it too.

  6. From Québec says:

    Nah! Too easy to blame it on the oil, one more time. The wars that were started by the U.S. in 7 countries, including Syria, have a much deeper and sinister goal.

    They want to destroy all western countries, by creating a non-stop influx of so-called migrant refugees (Islamists young men).
    That is the only way they will be able to install their NWO.

    Putin is a smart cookie, probably the only sane leader on this planet, these days. He won’t take any refugees and he won’t be ruled by the U,S. and NATO.

    I hope that he bombs all the terrorist Islamists in Syria, that are funded, armed and trained by the USA.

    The Plan — according to U.S. General Wesley Clark (Ret.) .

    • BDBinc says:

      Its a coordinated joint escalation for a WW3.
      The West playing the “bad” guy the Putin playing the role of “good” guy but they are all in on the NWO plan . Putin is ruled by Washington that’s why he’s helping them bomb Syria.
      FUNDING both sides is the Banksters forgotten in this ” good vs bad” paradigm .
      Banksters funding Putin and Banksters funding Ohbomba .The Crown, Vatican and Washington profit off War and maintain cotnrol in chaos , profit off people acting for their interests and made up causes.
      The radical propaganda in this war continues.

  7. Excellent article, Jon.

    This will be added to the punch lines of my soon-to-be-released (I keep saying it but it is “for real” this time) “Israel, Zionist ambition, ISIS and US Connections” on Ozzie Thinker,

    As the current draft is just under 7,500 words, and it may expand by 1500-2000 words upon final edit, I shall probably break it into 4-5 parts.

    Though I’m not thrilled with the corporation Genie in Israel and its all to questionable board, I definitely take issue with your “taken by Israel from Syria” line. According to antiquities literature- The book of Jubilees-,after the flood, lots were cast to determine who should live where. The survivors of the flood further put themselves under a curse if they lived anywhere but where the lot fell for them.
    The lot for the descendants of Shem fell in the area of current day Israel. This lot land even went as far at the river Euphrates. Well Abraham, Isaac, & Israel were descendants of Shem; Canaan was not but opted to live there anyway. They were even reproved for living there and warned. The Canaanites decided to settle there curse or no curse as did the Palestinians later on.
    According to the book of Jashur, referenced twice in the Bible as the go to source for more in depth information, Israel approached his brother Esau at the death of their father Isaac.
    ‘Yes,’ he says,'(You sold me the birthright but) I’m willing to split up father Isaac’s possessions anyway. What would you like to have-goods or land?’
    Esau gives the matter some thought & contacts Uncle Ishmael’s son or his brother in Law for advice(Yes Esau married a cousin) .
    “In your face” Nebayothl says,’Hey man take the possessions cuz we’re already living in the land even though we don’t have the birthright to do so.’
    So Esau tells his brother he’ll take dad’s possessions, Israel can have the land.
    Israel says, ‘Are you sure? If that’s what you want I’ll even pay you for the land. Which he does do for their agreed upon amount in front of four witnesses. The transaction is even recorded and stored away.
    Israel has always allowed people to live on land that was by rights and purchase his, yet is badmouthed for camping out on the very land he inherited and paid for.
    Also Syria is short for Assyria which invaded Northern Israel in the 700s BCE and deported them off their land to 3 different locations besides selling them as slaves throughout the then known world via the seaports of Tyre and Sidon. One location was below the Caucasus Mountains. The Black Obelisk the Assyrian king’s record of the account, references the people as Saache (off the cuff unsure of spelling but the upshot is this word is their languages meaning for Isaac’s sons) and became known as the Scythians. They cross the Caucasus mountains and become known as Caucasians. Southern Israel the Kingdom of Judah (the Jews) is invaded later by Babylon and deported there. The land is populated with their own people.
    So again… who was it that stole what from whom?
    Oh and by the way what was your ethnic background, Caucasian was it? Smack talking your relatives again are you? Well that’s on you. Have a great day.

    • Of course, the Bible contains unfettered truth, that’s why it contradicts itself so much.

      Ignoring all that old propaganda for Pharisees hell bent on indoctrinating their foe (anything and everything “in their way:), one thing is clear. Talk of “contradictions”, It’s those “Islamic” nutters calling themselves “ISIS” that are protecting the Golan Heights for Israel. How about that for fallacy? I guess that sums up despotism and its goals.

  10. Rob says:

    The Golan Heights belongs Syria. The title should read “Massive Oil Discovery in Syria’s Golan Heights.”

    • Dtrain says:

      Rob, does it? What is Syria? Who created Syria? The fact is they are nothing more than a bunch of tribal goat herders.

      Israel has controlled that area for almost 50 years….just let it go… will be okay. I know people like you hate Israel even though they are the only semi-civilized people in the entire region.

      • DDearborn says:


        Actually the United States has controlled that area first with the British and then using Israel as its proxy since WWII. What is Israel? Who created Israel? The UN never actually formally ratified the creation of Israel. In the Middle East Israel comes in dead last in terms of the legal legitimacy of its existence. And Israel’s murdering of what now amounts to 10’s of thousands of innocent Palestinian women and children and turning millions more into refugee does not constitute “semi-civilized” it is the very essence of evil, terror and uncivilized barbarism.

      • What nonsense, Dtrain. Are you a “compatriot”?

        There are no civilised Syrians? I think the majority there will disagree and consider themselves rather more “human” than the average citizen of Israel, which, of course, is an illegal state (according to their own Haredim) prized from Palestine. We learn Israelite view on the “terms of ownership” from Jericho. What a barbarous bunch!
