Israel accuses Iran of deliberately spilling oil to pollute its shores, calling it 'environmental

terror'

Israel on Wednesday accused Iran of intentionally orchestrating a massive oil spill near its shores in early February.

Israeli Environmental Protection Minister Gila Gamliel said Iran is conducting "terrorism by damaging the environment," per Reuters, adding that when "Iran is damaging the environment it isn't just hurting the state of Israel."

Israeli officials said the ship that caused the pollution was a Libyan-owned oil tanker suspected of smuggling oil from Iran to Syria.

More than 90% of Israel's 120-mile Mediterranean coastline was covered in an estimated 1000 tons of black tar due to the spill, the Associated Press reported, marking one of the worst ecological disasters in the country's history. Gamliel said the incident was a willful act of "environmental terror," vowing to "sue for compensation for all citizens of Israel."

1. Maybe they will have a little sympathy for...

Native Americans and their fight against pipelines then.

2. An act of Environmental Terrorism

is supposed to make them Israel more sympathetic to the plight of the American Indians? I don't understand?
