Israel and its new gas reserves

Are these two news stories connected? "Israel finds huge natural gas reserve" and "Will Bible lead to oil reserve under Israel? - Company using verses to map out drill sites in Holy Land"?

In the past it often struck me as unfair that Israel had no real oil or gas reserves whilst many of its neighbours were awash with the stuff. That was one of the reasons that I was impressed when Israel gave back the Sinai desert including its oil wells back to Egypt in return for peace. I have my fears that Israel will be destroyed from without and within over the next 10 years, maybe this gas find will help delay this.
