Some will criticize this as Shimon Peres’s much-discounted "New Middle East" vision, but I love it, and I am confident that if Israelis and Palestinians get their act together and accept the historical compromises necessary to a comprehensive permanent agreement, this will only be the beginning. Check out this vision for the future of the Arava, intersecting Israel, Jordan and Palestine.  It fits nicely within OneVoice’s Imagine 2018 Project.

    We can only hope this will happen to save the Dead Sea, which is a unique environment on our planet, and save the Middle East from descending into an ever-plummeting spiral of violence. If it only could happen, the Messiah might come! This is a very exciting prospect for peace and prosperity. May all its contributors and supporters be strengthened and supported by G-d in this wonderful endeavor.

    By the way, Peres’s speech about this project was put forth a year ago and I’m wondering how news of this concept only reached me (independent of Daniel’s post) today and that Daniel posted this only yesterday. The movie was emailed to me from a friend in Rome. There was a piece about it just today on NBC’s website. Is this particular project just now getting out in a big way? In any case, it brought me to this web site and Daniel’s bio which is impressive. I plan to move to Israel in the next couple of years, my target residence, the austere and therapeutic environment that is the Dead Sea.
