Unexpected miracle in the Holy Land

editor 14 January 2016

By Clifford D. May.. Israel has found a way to create an essential resource. Thirty years ago, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, an Egyptian politician and diplomat who would go on to become United Nations secretary-general in 1992, warned of Middle Eastern wars to come.

Palestinian Water (and Martin Schulz) The Lack of Logic

editor 6 March 2014

By Malcolm Lowe.. The supporters of the Palestinians think that by alleging a higher per capita use of water in Israel they are accusing Israel, but instead they are emphasizing the failures of the PA (here as in many fields). And while the Israeli spokesman thinks that he is defending Israel with his lower per capita figure, he is actually defending the PA against the charge of incompetence. (more…)


Cooperation with Israel on water could solve Arab water crises

editor 11 December 2013

By Sharyn Mittelman.. Israel is a world leader in water technology, and has made itself effectively ‘drought proof’ in a region suffering a severe water crisis, through its investment in areas such as desalination, waste water recycling and drip irrigation.

A recent UN Development Programme (UNDP) report urged the Arab region to urgently confront its water challenges in order to prevent the potentially severe risks resulting from inaction – including unplanned migration, economic collapse, and even regional conflict. (more…)
