US Christian drills for oil in Israel
By ASSOCIATED PRESS
An American Christian named John Brown believes God promised Israel a wealth of oil, so he's drilling for it north of Tel Aviv.
Brown bases his quest on a Bible verse - Genesis 49:25 - where Jacob tells his son Joseph that God will give him "blessings of the deep that lie beneath."
Brown's Zion Oil and Gas Company has raised seven million dollars - mainly from evangelical Christians - and is now drilling in the area that belonged to the tribes descended from Joseph.
Brown says he "prayed and asked God for oil for Israel," and believes, "the answer was yes."
Israel has struggled with little success to find oil for more than 50 years. And large oil companies have been reluctant to join the search for fear of angering major Arab oil producers.
