Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to postulate a political structure for Israel and a Palestinian State 25‐50 years from now.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper speculates that a Middle East Union modeled after the EU could enable stability and prosperity on a scale not now envisioned.

Findings

The paper speculates that oil will no longer be the global fuel of choice in 50 years. It is also speculated that long‐ and short‐range missile defenses will be reliable unlike today's systems. These will create new opportunities for successful collaboration in the Middle East.

Originality/value

The paper speculates that transportation, water, and power will be the key new elements of infrastructure needed to facilitate a Middle East Union. Nuclear desalination is postulated for the water and power and a light rail system connecting 15 cities in the Palestinian areas will be required.
