Would you buy into this plan if you were an Arab nation?
Transportation and Intelligence Minister Israel Katz unveiled an ambitious plan on Wednesday to give Jordan, Saudi Arabia and even Iraq access to the Mediterranean through Israel’s ports in Haifa and Ashdod, in a plan called “Tracks for Peace.”
Under the plan, the Haifa to Beit She’an train link would be extended eastward to the border crossing with Jordan and southward to the Jenin area where the Palestinians could connect to it. Rail lines would be laid in Jordan to Irbid, and from there it would link with existing and planned lines extending north-south through Jordan, into Saudi Arabia and further east to the Persian Gulf.

These "Tracks for Peace" also could be used to strangle the economies of nations of which Israel disapproves, for any reason ... or for no reason. And no one could stop them from doing so.
My advice - don't fall for this trap. Set up a similar network, but bring the goods in through Beirut and Tyre, avoiding Israeli territory and control altogether.
