Egyptian gas pipeline blown up again

The pipeline that transports natural gas from Egypt to Jordan was blown up on Sunday morning for the first time in more than a year. The fire was quickly put out, but the flow of natural gas was interrupted (Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit).
Egyptian security officials say suspected Islamic militants have bombed a natural gas pipeline to Jordan south of the city of el-Arish in the Sinai Peninsula. 
The attacks early Sunday on two points on the pipeline started fires that were soon put out, but the flow of gas was disrupted, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. 


The pipeline, designed to carry Egyptian natural gas to Israel, Jordan, Syrian and Lebanon, has functioned intermittently since the aftermath of the 2011 Egyptian revolution caused the security situation in the Sinai to deteriorate.
Due to shortages in Egypt, it currently only supplies gas to Jordan.
In another year or so, when Israel's natural gas capability starts coming online, this will matter a lot less than it does today.

While info on the Obama Green $lu$h (govt confiscated tax revenue) is easily available by googling, how is it going in domestic Israel resource allocation? Drilling your own?
