Peter Koenig: Israel wants CONTROL of water, hydrocarbons in the Middle East
12/06/2023 // Kevin Hughes // Views

Geopolitical analyst Peter Koenig believes Israel wants control of water and hydrocarbons in the Middle East.

Koenig, who was formerly with the World Bank, put forward this claim during a recent appearance on the "Health Ranger Report." He told the Health Ranger Mike Adams that he and some of his World Bank colleagues had made a study of water availability in the Palestine-Israel area.

The said study found that 80 percent of all the water in the area was either on or below the Palestinian territories. This was one of the reasons why Israel never wanted to honor the Oslo Accords, according to Koenig. The two accords laid out the foundation for the two-state solution.

One of the precepts of the Oslo Accords, Koenig said, was that the two states would be autonomous and responsible for managing their own resources and land. Given that precept, Palestine would be in control of about 80 percent of all the water in the region.

"That was unacceptable for Israel, which was actually one of the key reasons why they never wanted to accept the Oslo agreement," he told Adams. The report by Koenig and his colleagues went to the World Bank's board, but was not approved as it did not represent the Israeli position.

He continued that 80 percent of the water in Palestine was mostly in the West Bank. Meanwhile, Gaza has a large aquifer – but this isn't controlled by the Palestinians, rendering the strip very short on water.

The Health Ranger, meanwhile, remarked that aside from supporting a population, water is crucial for national security and economic growth. Water is also used by industry and for food resources which is needed to grow crops. Every human being consumes a certain amount of water daily for basic needs.

According to Koenig, control over water resources is just one aspect of the motivation for the "Greater Israel" expansion plan and the conflict to make this plan a reality. "The Zionists who set up modern-day Israel wanted a larger Israel that stretches far east and southeast and covers portions of Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan and Iraq," he said.

Israel could take control of 30-40% of the world's hydrocarbons

Koenig noted that the aforementioned area contains between 40 and 50 percent of all the known hydrocarbons in the world. "Easily, 30 to 40 percent of all the hydrocarbons in the world that would be under (the) control of Israel if the larger Israel would actually happen. That's one of the reasons; the first point, maybe," he said.

A second reason, according to Koenig, is British Gas' discovery of huge gas deposits about 20 to 30 kilometers (12.4 to 18.6 miles) off the coast of Gaza in 2000. This deposit possibly contains a trillion cubic feet of gas buried under the sea. The economist and geopolitical analyst noted that Israel would like to seize this amount of gas.

"There is some gas and some oil also in the north of the Gaza area which belongs to Israel, but not as much by far. So, this enormous amount of gas would happily be confiscated by Israel and belong to Israel to be distributed and sold to the West."

Ultimately, the Health Ranger stressed that whoever controls hydrocarbons has both strategic control and an opportunity for massive wealth generation.
