The Ben Gurion Canal Project is a proposed canal project through the state of Israel. It would connect the Gulf of Aqaba to the Mediterranean Sea.[1][2] David Ben Gurion, for whom it would be named, is considered the Founding Father of Israel and was the first Prime Minister of Israel.

The canal would rival the Suez Canal, which runs through Egypt and has had many disturbances in its history, such as the Israeli blockage through the Suez Canal and Straits of Tiran, Closure of the Suez Canal (1956–1957), Closure of the Suez Canal (1967–1975), and the 2021 Suez Canal obstruction.[1] It would be slightly more than 50% longer than the 120.1 mi (193.3 km) Suez Canal, at around 182 mi (292.9 km).[2]

Canada/US’ quiet motive for backing Israel’s genocide: the Ben Gurion Canal

from November 14, 2023

The United States, Israel, Canada and their allies are fiercely determined not to permit a ceasefire, considering their aligned interests. Their deliberate and joint offensive in the Gaza Strip is a clear indication of a long-term strategic plan, characterized by continuous air and ground attacks. This collaboration, which has tragically led to the loss of over 10 000 Palestinian lives, including a significant number of children, is not just a coincidence. It is the result of a well-coordinated military strategy, driven by shared economic and geopolitical objectives among these nations.
