Israel pulling out of the Gaza Strip is a step in the right direction towards a long-term peace settlement. This is only a beginning in the creation of a viable Palestinian State. Gaza Strip population is over 1,274,000 people in 360 square miles making it one of the most density-populated areas in the world with over 3,500 people per square miles. Very little fresh water and an ailing infrastructure and economy in the Gaza Strip, there is much that has to be done. The standard of living of the Palestinian people will have to be comparable to the Israelis and Jordanian. A major long-term international financial program is needed for the Gaza Strip. Egypt the recipient of a lot of international financial aid can help greatly in the creation of a viable Palestinian State. Egypt a nation that is cash poor and rich in land and culture could help in three ways. The first part only the Egyptians could help the Palestinian people with a land deal. A land deal with Egypt for a portion of the Sinai Peninsula bordering the Gaza Strip should be granted to the Palestinian State. This land deal could be the carrots that make the Gaza Strip a prosperous and viable state. The second major contribution Egypt can make is to work with the rest of the international community in the construction of the infrastructure to the Gaza Strip. The third Egypt could be one of the larger trading partners as well as on the ground consultants to the Palestinian people. The Israeli settlements in Gaza that the Israeli government is going to turn over to the Palestinian people should be intact as part of the reparation. Some of the former Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip should be used for housing the international humanitarian worker. Building a world-class hotel somewhere in Gaza so that international business has a base to work from to attract international investment into Gaza.
