AL SHUNAH, Jordan: US Secretary of State John Kerry unveiled on Sunday a plan to boost the Palestinian economy by attracting $4 billion in private investment, saying it could transform the lives of the people.
As he seeks to bring Israel and the Palestinians back to the table to negotiate a peace deal, Kerry said it was also imperative to create jobs and meet the hopes of young people for a better economic future.
He has tasked Tony Blair, the Quartet's special envoy to the Middle East, with drawing up a plan to revitalise the West Bank through boosting industries such as tourism, construction and agriculture.
Blair's plan, being aided by some global business leaders who are giving their time free, could be "ground-shaking," Kerry said, adding it could lead to "a private-sector-led healthy, sustainable Palestinian economy".
The group was putting together recommendations for the Palestinian leadership to decide on, aiming to "mobilise some $4 billion of investment".

How about Lurch cough up the 4 bill himself if he’s so confident?
Do it with Heinz Ketchup money, Lurch.
More money to the people who will forever hate America.
Is Kerry stupid — or is he a traitor?

Lurch, your plan just ain't gonna cut the mustard in Gazastan....and the taxpayers in the U.S.of A. ain't gonna relish it, either.
The United States is going bankrupt and we’re going to “boost” the Palestinian economy? It’s time to start randomly piss testing those morons on Capitol Hill. There seems to be a lot of druggies working up there.
Office of the Quartet Representative - Tony Blair
Tim Collins (financier)
“He is involved in several not-for-profit and public sector activities, including the U.S.-Japan Business Council, the Trilateral Commission, the U.S.-Japan Private Sector/Government Commission, Yale Divinity School advisory board, Yale School of Management board of advisors, American Friends of the British Museum, Yaddo, the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia, Trout Unlimited, and Lenox Hill Neighborhood House and the Tony Blair Faith Foundation.”
"Both" is also an option...
Excellent. Neville Chamberlain without any of the good qualities.
The House needs to defund this clown.
The guy is delusional.
Easy, there, Flyer.
It's not U.S. government money he's going to give them.
He's going to "mobilize" private :"investment" money to "boost" the "tourism, construction, and agriculture" industries.
He;s completely delusional, but he's not robbing the treasury to do it (according to this, anyway).
Searched “Kerry” before I posted(I took too long), didn’t see yours. Sorry. Appears to be slightly different articles on same subject.
I’m so glad we’re giving 4 billion MORE to the people that danced in the streets on 9/11!
What the hell is wrong with these people?
Huh, the Regime makes Americans suffer but has money to spread around the globe.
Wouldn’t it be a better idea to mobilize that private investment towards the country who is about to import 33 million foreigner freeloaders into their country?
