  1. With the train going to Eilat, life in the Negev will be improved. These protesters need to find something else to do…

  2. Personally, I don’t run my trains in the Gulf. Land is more stable. Smile.

  3. If it secures a way of not relying on the Suez Canal I am all for it.

  4. The shippers will be glad to avoid the Suez Canal especially the 'bribes' extorted by the Egyptian bureaucrats in charge of the canal who will steal food and other goods from the ships passing there.

  5. The protests could possibly help to ensure that proper care is taken to ensure there is no permanent damage but must not be allowed to torpedo the whole project. It would help to ease the strain on the roads through transport of goods (especially cars) being transported from Eilat to Haifa to circumvent the Suez canal. Even if the canal is not closed by Egypt transport through Israel is apparently more profitable through Israel and this would be even more so when the rail link is completed
