    1. Israel is still supplying the Gaza Strip with water, despite developments. 2. Towns in all locations have an adequate water supply. If you take Nablus as an example, there is between 40% and 60% (yes!) wastage owing to the complete non-maintenance of the town's rusty water system. As you are aware, the town is run by its own administration. Since most of the inordinate amount of money donated by the EU and other wellwishers to the PA ends up in the pockets of corrupt leaders, there is little left over to address the needs of ordinary people. It would be kind of Souha Arafat, widow of the unlamented Rais, to donate some of her ill-gotten inheritance to the people who elected her erstwhile husband into power. Then they would have sufficient water for drinking, not to mention Julia's concerns. Andi, both you and Julia would do well to examine facts before repeating the untruths invented by people whose only objective is to perpetuate the conflict rather than to solve it.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
