    Perhaps you don't realize that 70% of Israel's water today comes from occupied land and that even with the water that Israel has already gained from occupying the Golan and West Bank, Israel is still running out of fresh water due to growth, over use of existing aquifers and coastal aquifers becoming brackish. In addition, when Israel ends its occupation of the West Bank, the water there that was once controlled by Israel will become controlled by the Palestinians who will demand at least equal access in any final status, which will greatly reduce Israel?s water supplies. The Litani, which resides fully inside of Lebanon, is out of reach of Israel, so given Israel's history of stealing water and its numerous attempts to occupy Southern Lebanon it becomes very obvious what they are after. But to better educate yourself Victor, go to the site below and read up on the subject. ICE Case Study-Litani River and Israel-Lebanon http://www.american.edu/ted/ice/litani.htm
