My big concern about the Middle East is money being spent as reward for terrorism by Saudi Arabia and other countries.
How much better would it be for Palestinians to accept a new state next to Israel, accepting Israel's right to exist, and using money on social, economic and political considerations that better their lives and lives of their families rather than having a dead end of revenge, hate, terrorism and lack of responsibility for their future.
It makes more sense that Palestinians spend time and money on infrastructure of their own state, as other Arab states do not want them. This goes along with accepting Israel and its secure borders by all countries and the United Nations, so there can be cooperation with economic and agricultural sharing in the region.
