Israel’s transport minister in Oman, proposes Mediterranean-Gulf railway

A rail link from the Mediterranean to the Gulf states via Israel, Palestinian territories, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, would be good for them all, said Israel’s Transport Minister Israel Katz at an international transport conference taking place in the Sultanate of Oman. Israel would act as a land bridge and Jordan as regional transportation hub, according to the Katz plan. Iraq might also be attached to the projected railroad.

      What! Is there really a railroad track lying there under the sand? Or are you meaning metaphorically?

        Yes the railway connected basically the Palestine , as it was called, to Syria, Jordan in Part , Iraq in Part , and even goes towards Sinai and Kingdom of Saud . Brits did it last century while fighting with Turks , but even Turks had built the rail . Except total stupidity and all those regimes in ME , were so stupid , that after Brits left those colonies including present Israel , no one moved a finger in the restoration of hubs. Imagine , that only Egypt kept the railway for more than century , and it is really sad.

    Sounds like a really Great Idea from Israel’s Transport Minister… Innovative and as usual building Bridges with neighbouring countries where everyone could benefit.
    That is why Israeli Jews are so Advanced in Technology and most other things in Life because they are Pioneers that Contribute to the World ,So Success and Prosperity rewards the GIVERS not the TAKERS…….Facts not Fiction.
