School in Sheikh Jarrah 'could constitute a threat to the facility and its combatants,' state says. NGO: 'The government has found a new excuse to prevent building schools in East Jerusalem.'00:01 11.02.16 | 0 comments
Typical of the Big Lie nonsense you read from "talkbackers" attacking Israel. By the time the Jordan River reaches the northern boundary of the "West Bank" it is too saline to be useable for agriculture or drinking, and has been so for a century. Look at a map or a satellite photo - NO Arab villages along its Western banks, its a total desert. In the 1960's, when the W. Bank was in Jordanian hands, they diverted the headwaters of the Jordan to the "East Ghor Canal", watering the eastern bank of the Jordan River in Jordan, insuring the W. Bank side would remain empty, undevelopable desert. Has zero to do with Israel. Today both Jordan and the PA's W. Bank (and Gaza under Hamas) depend on imported Israeli water supplies which originate from the Galillee, far, far north of the Jordan River Valley and 100% inside pre-1967 Israel. Its NOT "all about water", that is laughable made-up nonsense. Anybody who has been there knows that, and is laughing at you with me.
