    Israel has granted a U.S. company the first license to explore for oil and gas in the occupied Golan
    Heights, John Reed of the Financial Times reports.

    A local subsidiary of the New York-listed company Genie Energy — which is advised by former vice
    president Dick Cheney and whose shareholders include Jacob Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch —
    will now have exclusive rights to a 153-square mile radius in the southern part of the Golan
    Heights.

    That geographic location will likely prove controversial. Israel seized the Golan Heights in the
    Six-Day War in 1967 and annexed the territory in 1981. Its administration of the area — which is not
    recognized by international law — has been mostly peaceful until the Syrian civil war broke out 23
    months ago.

    “This action is mostly political – it’s an attempt to deepen Israeli commitment to the occupied
    Golan Heights,” Israeli political analyst Yaron Ezrahi told FT. “The timing is directly related to the
    fact that the Syrian government is dealing with violence and chaos and is not free to deal with this
    problem.”

    Yes, it's political. No, it's not "an attempt to deepen Israeli commitment to the occupied Golan Heights." It's an attempt to deepen the TIES between Israel and U.S. interests.
