NEW YORK, Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Menorah Islands artificial islands project continues to reach millions of people around the globe who care deeply about finding a solution to the Middle East conflict.
More than four million people around the world have seen the Menorah Islands Project message, which promotes peace through economic cooperation and sustainable environmental practices. Close to 40,000 have expressed their support to date.
"The large number of people who have seen the Menorah Islands Project and who have 'liked' it [on Facebook] is evidence of the desire for change [of the status quo in the Middle East] and acceptance of new ideas," project lead Joseph Aoun said. "Our aim is to benefit everyone on this planet… We are not only building artificial islands. We are building model cities with a broad range of advanced technology which could be replicated elsewhere."
The Menorah Islands Project is a concept for a group of nine artificial islands — seven permanent and two that emerge from the water — off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean Sea. A beautiful place to live, work, and vacation, the Menorah Islands would be a world center for education, a model for environmentally-friendly practices, a showcase for emerging technologies, and would be a safe haven for people of all religions and races.
The overwhelmingly positive response to the idea has bolstered confidence in a bright future for Israelis and Palestinians.
"The milestones are important because they show people that they have the ability to change [political negativity] by using the knowledge and the wisdom we've been given by the God of peace and love, giving people the message and the ability to change and encouraging them to change from waging wars against each other to cooperating with each other," Aoun said. "[Society can] switch from producing weapons and selling them for profit to producing technologically-advanced machines to benefit everyone on Earth."
Menorah Islands Project leadership is receiving proposals from investors who are interested in getting involved with the next stages of the project. Please visit www.menorahislands.com/participate to submit information.
