Club Med(s)

You have to hand it to Shimon Peres. His brain is always ticking over.

Deputy Prime Minister Shimon Peres sought to plot out the economic fortunes of the Middle East after Israel pulls out of the Gaza Strip this summer, proposing Monday regional economic cooperation that could include a Club Med tourist resort in Palestinian areas.

“We could convert a settlement into a Club Med,” he said.

    Chag sameach!
