Dare to dream

When Neom and the population of the Hashemite Kingdom of Palestine intersect...

Two facts and a conclusion: 

1. The Saudis are building a giant futuristic city on the Red Sea coast called Neom. It is located south of Israel and across from the Sinai Peninsula.  The effort is part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s Vision 2030 plan. The city covers an area of more than 10,000 square miles (about the same size as Massachusetts).

 2. On June 8, 2022, the Saudi government-controlled newspaper Al Arabiya published a plan for uniting the Palestinian Arabs and the Kingdom of Jordan in an entity that would live in peace with the State of Israel. It would be called the Hashemite Kingdom of Palestine.

The population of this new territory could benefit from work opportunities in Neom.

The media has largely ignored this solution, but I, like MBS, dare to dream.
