Valid reason to be suspicious of US-brokered deal with Lebanon

Ruthie Blum says there's good reason to be suspicious of how bad the US-brokered deal with Lebanon is for Israel:
You don’t have to be a maritime expert to be suspicious of the US-brokered gas deal that Israel’s interim prime minister, Yair Lapid, hastily finalized with Lebanon on Tuesday. The speed with which the territorial-waters arrangement was reached is ample cause for genuine concern, especially since its terms were kept under wraps until Wednesday morning.

Mideast analysts in Israel, therefore, initially had no choice but to rely on reports from Lebanon about what the sides were actually negotiating. Pundits were basing their evaluation of the situation on statements by Hezbollah, the Iran-backed terrorist organization that controls the enemy state along Israel’s northern border.

Not that Lebanon is even what one could call a “state,”
mind you. It’s a failed, impoverished geographical area with a lame-duck president, Michel Aoun, who is on his way out at the end of this month, with no replacement in sight.

Oddly, this is one of the reasons given by those politicians and pundits promoting the deal – before even seeing it – for its urgency. The premise is a familiar one, no matter how many times it has been proven false. The idea behind it is that Israel’s foes pose a greater danger when they are in dire economic straits, and it is thus in the Jewish state’s interest to make sure that they flourish financially.

Never mind that this attitude, when translated into policy, is always a recipe for disaster. The Oslo Accords, and the disengagement from Gaza, are two examples of Israeli attempts to purchase “peace” or “quiet” through territorial withdrawals and lots of cash.
