    The water problem is Israel does not come from urban use !!!! It is the moshavim and kibbutzim who are the problem !!! If you sart to grow fruits which do not belong here and do not normaly grow here because or the lack of "normal" water, you MAKE a water problem. All these fruits use tremendous quantities water that Israel does not have. This is the real problem but as stated in the article; the moshavim and kibbutzim lobby is very strong and nothing will happen here. It is easier to put the problem on the people and collect money this way. If you look at a bananaplant and her leaves you can see how much water it evaporates in a day. But this is tipical Israel; look for solutions on symptoms and not on real courses (water>urban use, security>more weapons) Shalom
