    CAIRO, (PIC)-- The Egyptian gas pipeline in northern Sinai Peninsula supplying natural gas to Israel and Jordan was blasted for the 14th time, since 25 January 2011, at dawn Monday.

    Security sources said that the blast targeted a section of the pipeline in northern Sinai near the entrance to El-Arish city.

    No party declared responsibility for the attack.

    The gas agreement between Egypt and Israel is criticized by the Egyptian public, charging that gas was sold to Israel at a very low price compared to the international prices.

    A responsible source in GASCO that operates the pipeline said that the Egyptian economy suffered one billion Egyptian pounds, around 166 million dollars, in losses as a result of the repeated blasts.

    He added that the repeated repairs and replacements of pipelines cost the company around 100 million pounds while the insurance premium was raised to 40 million from 30 million.

    Maybe the price will have to go up. That's cool.

    While you are salivating over this like some silly teenager, would you think it cool if Americans said no more imports of clothing manufasctured in the Muslim world which hates us and that we should have all the factories built in Mexico and Central America so that these people will have jobs?
