«The Palestinian territories are experiencing a marked economic upturn as a halt in violence leads to increased trade and investment».
«It is way quieter now in the West Bank than the way it used to be even six months, or 12 months ago».
This is a statement of Ofir Gendelman, who heads the Israeli-Palestinian Chamber of Commerce. «When there is quiet, when there is security, the economy will flourish and this is what we see».
Construction projects can be seen just about everywhere. The town of Ramallah is preparing to open a newly-built five-star hotel, the result of European investment. Improved security has led the Israeli army in the past year to remove more than 140 checkpoints, allowing for the freer flow of people and goods in the West Bank.
«It is easier to negotiate with someone who has a normal life, someone who is not desperate, someone who does not feel disenfranchised,» added Gendelman.
«I think that the betterment of the economic situation in the West Bank has definitely improved the chances to reach a peace deal»

Israel has always had to demands to the Arab Palestinians. «Stop using violence, and recognize the right of the state of Israel to exist».
The problems the Arab Palestinians face is basically a curse they have brought up on their own head, because of the Islamic agenda of destroying Israel. The day the sons and daughters of Ishmael get rid of the yoke of Islam, the Messiah will bless them. Everyone who stop cursing Israel, but rather bless the Jewish people will be blessed.
Everyone who loves the Son and Daughters of Jacob, renamed Israel, also loves the Arab people. When we see good things happen to them, we always rejoice. May we all become One in the Messiah, sent to bless the Word by God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In the name of Y´shua. Amen.
