War is hell. It makes it difficult to go for pizza.
I don't think the land swap is a viable option. To give them land in South Israel, maybe that borders Egypt in return for the West Bank or Gaza.
For one thing the land is useless. And second they would be still there penniless as the rest of the Middle Eastern countries improve economically.
In a buy out situation, they can move and be welcomed by many countries in the region, with 20,000 per man woman and child.
Or they can stay and spend half on buying back their home site, and spend half on a new house or business or farm or pool their money to build
apartments but they wouldn't be a burden on the state.
They have a city there that has no septic systems. They are desperately short of water, so there is very little agriculture. They have no options to
irrigate, no one will give them the kind of money they need and I know I worked on this for 20 years.
The Arab nations have had every opportunity and I asked them to contribute over and over again, and they built a few small government like
So they are on their own that way. And they are not welcome in other Arab countries as refugees, or as broke individuals. Everyone has their own
social problems as it is.
So many Palestinians have become citizens haven't they? There are lots of Arab people who are citizens of Israel and work and live and call it
The two people's have lived together all their lives since the state of Israel was formed.
So they take the buy out for 20,000 each person, and they are given citizenship, or they have to move elsewhere with their 20,000.
If they agree to stay, then they can use half of that money in a land swap. They can get a piece of the West Bank to live on. It buys a parcel of land
from the land use plan. Agricultural probably.
So now then once the deals are all done, they can turn around and sell that land to any Israeli citizen and the land value will have gone up. Or stay
and prosper in a country with a GDP per person of 30,000 as opposed to the GDP of Syria, which is 3,000. At present.
So then Israel can irrigate the West Bank have agricultural land and get IMF funding for development.
So what the International community's plan is, is to raise the GDP per capita of those countries like Syria and Egypt and Iraq to at least the level
of Iran and Lebanon.
We will not invest where there is this land dispute.
For one thing part of the plan is to build a 5 billion dollar trade center, near agricultural land so they can market their goods world-wide.
But the land has to be donated. Since its the UN/IMF/G20 we don't want to haggle over land. It will be like land donated to the world trade
organization. Its for everyone's use. All member countries which is 188 countries.
To facilitate trade, improve shipping methods and to create economic development and fix global banking.
Its a large scale 500 billion dollar plan.
90 hubs world wide. So does Israel not want to be in on that trade organization? Do the Palestinians want to hold on to this silly notion of
nationalism and not be able to afford health care or proper food or give their children a chance at a better life? Thats nonsense.
