Helping Hand of Prosperity for Palestine-Israel (and their vital Levant neighborhood)

The Economist article from a year ago entitled Plans to save the Dead Sea included a nice map summarizing a series of practical peace initiatives. This is a very compelling combination of business prosperity parks, water projects, translogistics infrastructure (e.g. road & rail), and more. The area is the heart of a vital Levant and really ought to thrive. This notion is at the core of the excellent Hummus project, one of the winners of the Jerusalem 2050 Competition at MIT. Perhaps if only we could rally essential investments and bring the helping hand of prosperity to the region.
