in essence rotating the Gaza Strip 90 degrees clockwise. This arrangement required cooperation by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, Syria,
Turkey and Iran. It is helpful (and in their interests) if Jordan, Lebanon, the West Bank, Cyprus and Iraq are active participants in
mutual co-development efforts.

explosion of new energy sources will not be sufficient. The key is jobs. Our preferred solution is 110,000 rail miles of maglevs and 300
supurbs in a network stretching from eastern Russia (and even Japan, the Koreas and China) across the Bering Straits to Boston,
Belize and beyond.
