Who really owns the Dead Sea?
Yair Lapid is firmly against the sale of Israel Chemicals to a Canadian company. But what right does the Great White North have to the lowest place on earth, anyway?
Ah, the Dead Sea. Four hundred meters below sea level lies Israel's greatest (and arguably its only) natural treasure. Dotted with the ruins of monasteries, palaces, synagogues and mosques, this biblical geological wonder, has, for thousands of years, been a pilgrimage sight for the Greeks, the Persians, the Romans, the Christians and Jews.
