The story of the gas find off the coast of Israel (or possibly Lebanon) will not go away. Here’s a map I was able to find of the gas fields in question (from Green Prophet):

Israeli billionaire, Yitzhak Tshuva, who controls Noble Energy Inc. (the company that found the gas) has publicly voiced his willingness to help Lebanon with ‘our’ gas:

Lebanon can benefit from the discovery of off-shore gas fields in its territorial waters, billionaire Yitzhak Tshuva told some 4,000 haredi businessmen in Jerusalem last Thursday during a conference sponsored by the Hamodia daily.

[…]

“There is no argument over the fact that the finds are in Israeli territory, but seismographic data indicate there is a large amount of gas in Lebanese territory as well,” Tshuva said.

[…]

“If there is gas within Lebanon’s territory, we will be willing to share with them (Lebanese authorities) all the information we have regarding the search for natural gas in exchange for real peace,” Tshuva told the conference.

Yeah, well I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
