“Cash Rules Everything Around Me; C.R.E.A.M., Get the money; Dolla dolla bills y’all.”
The Wu-Tang Clan may not have been writing about Israeli-Turkish relations when they wrote “C.R.E.A.M.“, but it most certainly applies.
Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz declared Tuesday that Israel’s massive natural gas find, which began flowing over the weekend, is not feasible for export unless it goes through Anatolia.
There is no other way to seriously understand the repair of ties between the two countries that began late last month than through the lens of the gas. I recommend reading Joseph Dana’s report in The National last week for a better understanding.
