    Thanks for the questions into these seemingly obvious observations. Truth is, there has already been massive investment $$$ ear-marked for building up Gaza into a resort and manufacturing hub - from the Gulf and Western nations. It has failed for several reasons: 1) Lack of true security which makes any investment risky. 2) The ruling parties are massively corrupt and only through pay-offs and knowing someone can business be done. 3) The Pals just dragged their feet. They have no clue how to push this forward and are less willing to show advancement for fear of losing the populace will of forever attacking Israel. Pre-1999 showed Pals and Israelis working together because of prosperity. Take it away, and people get violent. Israel WILL survive because we've been doing so for 59 years as a State, 87 years as a local entity, and over 2000 years as a nation.
