Fantasy Island Moves to Gaza

Yisrael Katz

Yisrael Katz, who is both Minister of Transportation and Minister of Intelligence in the Israeli Knesset, has been, um, floating the idea, for quite awhile now, of creating an artificial island off of the Gaza coast, so that the people of Gaza could have a way around the legal Israeli maritime blockade. With such an island, Gazans would expand their economic horizons, have a way in and out of Gaza, and might also receive humanitarian assistance without endangering ordinary Israelis.

But Katz has now done more than just talk about said ephemeral island. He’s had a video created that explains his vision. And it really does make one wonder if this idea of a real Fantasy Island just might work.
