6 REASONS WHY EZiZ] PUSHES FOR UK MILITARY ACTION IN SYRIA 1) The Sun is owned by Rupert Murdoch, 2) Rupert Murdoch is a major shareholder in the US firm Genie Energy. 3) Last year, Israel illegally granted oil exploration rights at sites inside Syrian territory to Genie Energy. 4) Israel tried to do this 20 years ago, but was forced to back down after a strong reaction from the Syrian government. 5) Israel is now seeking to take advantage of the weakened Syrian state to ensure Genie Energy can access the oil. 6) Rupert Murdoch therefore benefits from a destabilised Syria - hence why his newspaper pushes so strongly for war. are
