“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”. “
IIRC, when Israel left the West Bank, didn’t they leave tons of infrastructure for the Phillistinians to use? Didn’t the Phillistinians then destroy perfectly good factories, nurseries, orchards and plantations, simply because they came from ‘da Jooooos’?
Giving $4B to the Phillistinians to build up their tourist, construction and agriculture industries. Sounds like a reeeeel good plan that the Viet Nam war heeeero has got on the go. Almost as good as Obama’s ‘recovery’ plan.
