Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz has presented U.S. special envoy Jason Greenblatt with his plan to create an artificial island off the coast of the Gaza Strip where a sea port would be built along with infrastructure that would serve the Palestinian residents of Gaza, Katz said at a press briefing Wednesday.

According to Katz, Greenblatt expressed willingness to persuade the U.S. government to promote the issue.  

The first, dubbed the 'separation plan' from Gaza includes the construction of an island adjacent to the Gaza coast where a port would be built along with electric and water facilities that would allow Gaza's residents to have an economic connection to the world without harming Israel's security.

.... Netanyahu hasn't expressed any particular desire to pursue the issue.
