Kushner to launch $50 billion economic plan at Bahrain

A $50 billion global investment in a global investment fund to lift the Palestinian and neighboring Arab economies will be launched at the Bahrain conferene, President Trump’s adviser Jared Kushner told Reuters on Saturday. It covers 179 infrastructure and business projects, including a $5 billion transport corridor linking the West Bank and Gaza and building up the Palestinian tourist sector. More than half will be spent in the Palestinian territories over 10 years and the rest split between Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and the Sinai Peninsula. The Palestinians are boycotting the Bahrain summit and the Trump peace plan. Kushner said some Palestinian business executives have confirmed their participation in the conference, but he declined to identify them. The Trump administration hopes that other countries, principally wealthy Gulf states, and private investors, will foot much of the bill, Kushner told Reuters.

    The rain of billions previously send to PA, Hamas and Hezbollah in the last 50 or so years is lost capital, there are no dividends coming out of there. There will be a very dry season for the beggars, profiteers, and actors playing the refugee realty show.
    They failed, time to admit and go over it.

    Looks like the Plan is more for the young adults and families, not for decayed dunk abbases.
    Maybe for the Ahed Tamimi slapping witch, the future PA President.

    Complete Utopia. Muslim oil-producing countries, the population lives not much better than the Palestinian rabble. This is their chosen lifestyle 1500 years ago.
    The main problem Israel can not live without serving as a terrorist from all over the world gathered in Gaza and Palestine.
    Israel completely lost its territory, a peaceful life for the promises of terrorists. For decades, the Israeli government has created this irretrievable situation. Their shocking, pathological aspiration is sure to put as many Jews as possible with Jews in tiny territory. Pure water sabotage. The government is driving in millions of kilometers from real problems.
    50 billion are needed to eliminate Gaza and Palestine.
    In contrast to Israel, the left with the Muslims are successfully moving towards the destruction of Israel from within. Great success ..
    The resulting 50 billion will be immediately spent on weapons and repression of the population of Palestine and Israel. Guaranteed disaster for Izrael.
    In the West, they cannot understand the simple: Religion categorically prohibits working as a recipient of billions.
    These people easily lose their lives for the sake of terror against Israel, the West.
    The whole military strategy of Israel is a complete absurdity. The goal is to lose with the minimum sacrifices of enemies. All decisions are made on the basis of political anti-Israel companies of Sweden, the United Nations, the left of the EU or the United States.
    Israel is 100 times better to treat terrorists in prisons than Jewish settlers? First: the Jews! Second: Settlers!
