Above the Green Line

According to Online Casino News, an Israeli Casino in the resort city of Eilat may become a reality, establishing some 50,000 new jobs and attracting an estimated million tourists a year.

The Israeli Cabinet will debate the legalization of the first Israeli casino in the southern city of Eilat during its upcoming session. Although a formal decision is yet to be made, many groups of investors, including the owner of 5 star hotel “The Princess” and entrepreneur/former Knesset member Shmuel Flatto Sharon, have already shown interest.

  1. Hopefully it will never be approved.
    50 000 new jobs is quite an exageration. There was a somewhat small-sized casino in the Taba Hilton before it was blown up, and I highly doubt it even sustained even 5000 jobs. Casinos used to be scarce, but now they are all over the place. They used to be high-class establishments, now there’s virtually no dress code, and you can show up in a tshirt and jeans. Casinos used to be for high rollers, but now you can play blackjack at the $5 table exactly like on the internet in your underwear.
    Keep the casino out of Israel.
