This is interesting. There is a city being built at enormous cost in the desert coast of Saudi Arabia up in the left hand fork off the Red Sea as it goes up the Gulf of Aqaba. It borders with Jordan, just below where Israel and Jordan border at the northern tip of the Gulf. It's a beautiful area with beaches, mountains and it just happens to be near -- but not yet linked up to the proposed railway that will link the Gulf States, and Saudi kingdom with Jordan and Israel. That rail system bypasses the problems of oil tankers being vulnerable to Iran if I don't miss my guess. It is called "tracks for regional peace" and it's backed by the Americans as well as the Saudi's the Jordanians, the Israelis and now Oman and the Gulf States who feel threatened by Iran. Sheba and Dedan anyone? Even if it isn't linked to the new city, it's a pretty major step to keep Sheba and Dedan as part of the few who question the Gog Magog invasion plans of Ez 38. And such things cause wealth corridors to happen, attracting business all along the route. If they can solve the constant threat of terrorism coming from Iran, it has a chance of creating a lot of wealth in the area, and not all for the Saudis either. But here comes the city. It's called NEOM and it was announced about a year ago. October 2017 https://bigthink.com/design-for-goo...y-to-herald-the-future-of-human-civillization Oddly enough when we first heard of this proposed railway. https://www.reuters.com/article/isr...ail-link-to-jordan-saudi-arabia-idUSL5N1HD3CX Also october 2017 This is a new economic centre being planned, rather like Dubai but on a bigger better scale and funded by BIN SALMAN. It's part of his 2030 AD plan for Saudi Arabia to survive past the end of the oil economy which he thinks will happen. Both the city and the railway a year later haven't disappeared, but money and effort are coming in to make both a success. Here are recent news articles on both. https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Katz-Great-interest-in-Israel-Saudi-railway-plan-569447 and https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/10/sau...ing-overwhelming-interest-from-investors.html and https://www.arabianbusiness.com/con...chases-deals-on-saudi-arabias-500bn-neom-city What I'm interested in, is this economic boom that follows along such projects is going to create a wealth corridor that benefits ISRAEL, as well as all the other countries linked up along the railway or who are part of the building boom creating that new city. This may well be a centre for world commerce being built. It's certainly the dream of Bin Salman, and if the Saudi Crown Prince survives the Khashoggi murder and the realization of his role in that, then he and his dream city and railway are poised to create a lot of wealth in the future. I think he will survive, he is the type who knows how to thrive in the middle of intrigue and murder that characterizes the Muslim Middle East, so this city is going ahead. Whether it becomes a New Babylon by the sea is yet to be seen, but it's certainly something worth watching.
