A new Israeli oil company called Zion Oil stocks an array of products that were not only used in Israel during the Second Intifada but were also the cornerstone of the Palestinian struggle.
Zion Oil was founded in 1994 by two Jewish settlers, David Yohanan and Yoav Galant, and was renamed in 2005 by the same settlers.
Yohanas wife, Nava, is a director of the company and Galant is a partner.
The name of the oil company is derived from the word “Zion” which means “God’s hand.”
The company’s stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “ZIV” (Israel’s Hebrew name for Jerusalem).
The company’s founder, David Galant says he was motivated to start Zion Oil because he wanted to “help Palestine” and he was inspired by the Palestinian cause.
“I wanted to build a company that would bring the energy of the land and the people together in the spirit of unity and justice,” Galant told The Huffington the company was founded to create “a great company that is going to serve the needs of Palestine and its people.”
Yohanan was born in 1948 to a Jewish family and moved to Israel when he was young.
He attended Hebrew University and earned a law degree from the University of Haifa, graduating in 1975.
Yolandan then began working for the Yom Kippur Peace Organization, a non-profit organization that was established to aid the Palestinian people and help them rebuild their homes following the Second World War.
In 1976, he was awarded the Israel Prize for his work in the field of peace and reconciliation.
In the 1990s, Yohanans family moved to Ramallah, a city that was at the heart of the Second Palestinian Intifadas.
After the Second Israeli Intifadah, Yolandans wife Nava joined the peace movement and became a board member of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in 2003.
Nava and her family became part of the “Palestine solidarity network” and have continued to be a vocal advocate for the Palestinian rights and needs.
During the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Zion Oil’s stock value skyrocketed, reaching more than $7 billion in 2015.
Yohannan said the company’s sales have been strong, especially during the 2014 Gaza conflict when oil prices skyrocketed and oil tankers were seized by Israel.
“The Palestinian people did not lose the right to their oil, they lost their right to it,” Yohanana said.
“There were many protests.
The Israeli government took over the oil wells and destroyed all of the pipelines that were being used to get it to Gaza.
It was a total disaster.”
We didn’t get a single drop of oil, because Israel didn’t want to get the credit.
The Palestinians didn’t pay the price.
The Israelis didn’t take responsibility.
“In 2014, Yohaniyan founded the Palestine Liberation Organization-Israel, an organization that seeks to achieve the rights of the Palestinians, Yom, Yochi, Yadin, and Neve, Yod and Yod, Yos, Yot, and Yotam, and Tisha and Yohan.
In 2016, the PLO launched the “Jerusalem-Palestine Pipeline Initiative” (JPIPI), a project that aims to bring Palestinian oil to the Mediterranean Sea and the Mediterranean coast.
According to Yohananiya, the main focus of the pipeline is to bring Israeli oil to Gaza to the benefit of Palestinians living in the area. “
If you want to help us, you should be working with us,” Yohanyan said.
According to Yohananiya, the main focus of the pipeline is to bring Israeli oil to Gaza to the benefit of Palestinians living in the area.
He said the project aims to use Israel’s Gazan oil fields for oil production and to provide jobs for the Palestinians living there.
“We will build a pipeline that will be the main source of Palestinian oil, the Palestinian-owned oil company,” Yolan said.
The Palestinian Oil Company’s website says it provides the Israeli economy with over 200,000 jobs, a $1.4 billion annual turnover, and employs around 2,000 people.
The company is also a major contributor to local infrastructure, Yolaniya said.
Yohannans family said he is hopeful the pipeline will eventually lead to the release of all the Palestinian prisoners and is confident the pipeline could be a model for other Palestinian companies.
“In order to build an independent Palestinian economy, you have to build the infrastructure,” Yolanyan explained.
“The pipelines are a model that will eventually bring the Palestinian economy to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.”
According to the International Energy Agency, Israeli oil exports to the Palestinians have increased by 80 percent in the past decade, with most of the increase coming from
