As the wealth of the Middle East kings and heads of state attest, the region's vast oil fields are a great source of jobs and opportunities. And yet, these are not share with the population.
With the wealth that comes from oil, governments in the Middle East should build schools, not mosques, to educate their people to compete in the global economy.
The profits from oil should be invested in renewable energy and hydroponics. Israel has developed a great reputation for making the desert bloom. Hydroponics was recognized long ago in Israel as a logical method for increasing agricultural productivity. It may in fact be true that the Israelis are the most skilled at developing agricultural technology for dry, barren regions. How ironic they want to wipe off the map Israel, the one country that can save them.
The problem of dissatisfied populations fleeing from their countries would be solved by investing their countries' riches in their education, well-being, and sustenance. But because of the greed of their monarchs and leaders, it doesn't happen. It is far easier to blame the West for their ills through the mosques' indoctrination.
I hope people, especially in the U.S., see that this not only can happen, but it is happening in their own countries. By allowing corporations and a few billionaires to write laws to allow fracking (has been proven to be dangerous to your health and the environment by increasing global warming); to allow your credit card company to charge you 24% interest on your balance which puts you more in debt; to allow pharmaceuticals to overcharge you 150% for the medication that is keeping you alive; to keep the minimum wage low to insure you can't have a financial future; to dismantle all types of regulations set up by the government to protect people; and to push out public education in favor of charter schools which, like mosques, indoctrinate children, a few are taking control of the population's lives driving a wedge that is increasingly widening --just like it has happened in the Middle East.
