If those who object to this plan actually set foot in Jisr Al Zarqa, they would understand what it was about. This is a crowded town wedged between the highway and the ocean, separated from plush Caesaria (one of whose residents is Bibi Netanyahu) by a high wall (!) and from Kibbutz Maagan Michael to its north by one of those "nature" areas that prevent it expanding in that direction. It has no direct access to the highway that passes it and its residents have to leave the town via two underpasses constantly under surveillance by police parked at their exits. It's overpopulated, poor http://www.haaretz.com/print-edition/news/in-dirt-poor-jisr-al-zarqa-showers-are-a-rare-commodity-1.346559 and woefully neglected by Israel's service providers. /////The generous liberals of Beit Hanania should visit sometime.
