It's a great point - thinking of Jerusalem as a global city, and drawing investment in it as such. Could a private corporation take on such a task where government hasn't done to well? Can a corporation with both Jews and Arabs on its board grow strong enough politically that it can smooth out the disagreements between the eventually separate political sovereigns in the area? Could that venture then extend its borders to ensure efficient and effective access to other holy sites in the area?

I'd love to see a work of sci-fi--or a collection of short sci-fi stories--that present different future scenarios for the Holy City. If we can't dream it, how're we going to ever build it?
