Let There Be (Natural) Gas - Israel's First Gas Starts Flowing

You are not reading about a new interpretation of Genesis creation story. The title is a pun on news of gas starting to flow into Israel's electric company from Delek's Tamar gas field. It should be the biggest story on the news, but barely got a mention in the press. Did Israelis stop caring about energy cost? I don't think so. It's simply old news here. When natural gas was discovered two years ago it was big news. The media found all kind of commentators predicting the great Israeli energy empire (a few comparison to our Arab neighboring states were buzzing around.) Then came the two years of building terminals and pipeline. So now, this old news has turned into "it's about time".
