Maintaining Palestinian Peace by Putting Prosperity First

Palestinians (and Israelis) should be looking to Singapore for how to create the foundation of an agreement.

Operation Protective Edge looks like it will end the same way that the last two operations, Cast Lead and Pillar of Defense, did. A formal or informal cease-fire will hold for a while, aid money will flow into Gaza to rebuild the war damage and keep the economy’s head just above water. Israel’s blockade will stay in place while Hamas plots and plans how to liberate Palestine.
