Better Place and the Peace Process…

As I watched the video at the Better Place facility in Israel, I found myself thinking:

“if this works, it completely changes the face of the Middle East and the Arab-Israeli conflict.”

First, some assumptions.Project Better Place Visitors Center (4)

  1. for the most part, the Arab-Israeli conflict is kept alive by the fact that the West has to care about it in order to keep the flow of oil alive
  2. were it not for oil, people really wouldn’t care about the Middle East

So, if Better Place is able to change the world dynamic from one that cares about Arab oil to one that doesn’t really care, the whole future of the region takes a massive turn.

From a strategic defense perspective, this initiative could be the most important thing to occur in the history of the state of Israel.

No, I’m not exaggerating.
