And people just need to see you and your filth, Ratty. This is why the Jew is despised and has been so despised for 2000 years. Let's never forget: it was the same evil that murdered the Messiah, the Christ. The same Jew is now murdering kids in Palestine and stealing their parents home, destroying the Ukraine and many other nations. May the Lord God solve this problem finally, soon.

this is a cut and pastey from your link
Gaza's primary water source is the coastal aquifer, which is also used by Israel and Egypt. It has been continuously over-pumped for decades, even prior to Israel's occupation in 1967.At present, the Palestinian Water Authority pumps some 180 million cubic meters (mcm) a year from the aquifer in Gaza, although its replenishment rate is only 50-60 mcm a year.. Over the years, this has significantly lowered the groundwater level, leading to contamination of the aquifer’s water by seawater seeping in and saline groundwater rising from deeper in the reservoir

clearly a mismanaged resource.
Not enough water from Hamas , but plenty of rockets
Are the Israelis responsible for Hamas mismanagement?
I think you should be looking to Israel in relation to the scarcity of water and the mismanagement of it in the OPT. They are the ones who are in control of over 90% of the water and it is they are abusing the water that is available throughout the OPT and having the cheek to then turn around and charge the Palestinians for their own resource.
Measures taken by the Israeli authorities, including the relentless expansion of settlements, continue to deprive Palestinians of vital water resources necessary for a dignified standard of living. Palestinian communities are left fragmented and confined to shrinking areas. These areas resemble a land-locked archipelago of territory in which essential human rights, and more specifically the right to water, are continuously denied.
A report released by al-Haq says Israel claims up to 89% of an underground aquifer that is largely located in the West Bank, giving Palestinians only access to the remaining 11%.
Some 4.2 million Palestinians live in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem, consuming, al-Haq says, on average 73 liters [almost 20 gallons] of water per capita per day. While 7.7 million Israelis consume an average of 300 liters.
The more than 500,000 Jewish settlers living in the West Bank, al-Haq says, consume approximately six times the amount of water used by the West Bank’s 2.6 million Palestinians.
Israel is also responsible for the destruction of Palestinian wells. According the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the practice of demolishing Palestinian wells and water reserves in the West Bank has intensified in recent years, with over 200 structures demolished between 2009 and 2011. And permits are nearly impossible to obtain.
So next time do your research before blaming Hamas re the problem when in fact it is Israel and its expanding settlements stealing the water from Palestinians

ISRAEL'S PLOY TO FORCIBLY TRANSFER PALESTINIAN COMMUNITIES FROM THEIR HOMES

For most Palestinians living in Area C of the West Bank, it is impossible to separate the struggle over water from any of the other Israeli restrictions imposed.

Despite having proof of ownership of the land dating back to 1926, the Musa family home, as well as that of his father and two brothers, was demolished three times, citing a lack of building permits.

But the pressure to remain on the land remains strong, he says, not least because they have nowhere else to go. They rebuilt their homes after each demolition.

The al-Haq report says Israel’s discriminatory water policy in the West Bank is intrinsically linked to its settlement expansion strategy.

By imposing a draconian permit regime and demolishing structures without them, Israel aims to “forcibly transfer Palestinian communities from their homes,” the report said,“which is instrumental to Israel’s unlawful transfer of its own civilian population into occupied territory.”

You are just a piece of satan. How do you even know this person is Jewish?

After 2,000 years Israel has become a nation again. Evil men killed Jesus not all Jews. You'll never get that through your dense head becaus your hatred consumes you.

When the "Jews" were spreading the Gospel, God still called you heathen. You haven't become more holy because the Jews erred. Whoever you pray to it isn't the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob..

Do you have any understanding of the Abrahamic covenant?

Now you are blaming the Jews for the Ukraine? You are a sick person.

When Palestinian children are killed we know it's because of hamas. Your reality is wrapped around your hatred for the Jews. You make no mention of murdering jihadists. You never can show you claims to be true. You post whatever you want and think we should just belive it. You're insane.

Don't forget, you are who God called heathen, still are.

Palestinians need Israeli know-how on water desalination
http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/business/2014... #

The farmers are still skeptical about wastewater reuse

While Israel has made great advances, the Palestinian water sector has stayed rather paralyzed. The Palestinian water system remains failing. Wastewater reuse is uncommon and traditionally, there is still reluctance about wastewater reuse.

At a [Jan. 27] conference in Tel Aviv [held by Friends of the Earth Middle East and the Institute for National Security Studies]… it was noted that immediate action was required to resolve the water shortage, specifically in Gaza, as it was on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. There is not enough water in Gaza even for the most basic needs, and, as a consequence, childhood diseases are liable to spread in the Gaza Strip and reach Israel, as well. A report to this effect was published by The New York Times, among others.

One reason for the deterioration in Gaza is that no desalination plant has been built there. Due to political circumstances, there is suitable infrastructure in Gaza — energy facilities, in particular — for the establishment of such a plant. For one thing, the large gas field discovered off the coast of the Gaza Strip 14 years ago is still not utilized. To enable its [cost-effective] operation, Israel had to commit itself to purchase gas from the Gaza Marine gas field off the Gaza coast (however, at the time [in 2005], then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon decided to buy gas from Egypt instead). Alternatively, Israel has to allow the construction of a gas pipeline running from Gaza to the West Bank, and possibly even further on, to Jordan.

A recently signed agreement involving Jordan may change the situation

All that may change following the implementation of the first phase of the Red Sea-Dead Sea Canal project in line with the agreement signed two months ago [Dec. 9] between Israel (represented by Minister for Regional Cooperation Silvan Shalom), Jordan and the Palestinian Authority. Under the agreement, a large desalination plant is to be built in Aqaba, which is designed to draw out in the first stage 200 million cubic meters [162,000 acre feet] of water from the Red Sea — 80 million cubic meters [65,000 acre feet] of which are to be transformed into drinking water, while the rest would be flowed into the Dead Sea. Jordan is to purchase 30 million cubic meters [24,000 acre feet] of desalinated water, and Israel is to buy 30 million to 50 million cubic meters [roughly 24,000 to 40,000 acre feet].

The Palestinians are partners to the agreement since a quarter of the Dead Sea is located in the West.

Israel is doing more for the Palestinians than hamas ever has or will.

Kissinger: In 10 Years There Will Be No More Israel

NyPo gossip columnist Cindy Adams writes:

Henry KISSINGER. Former secretary of state. Current savant of the state of the world. Do not argue with Mr. Kissinger’s know-how. He already knows how...

Reported to me, Henry Kissinger has stated — and I quote the statement word for word:“In 10 years, there will be no more Israel.”

I repeat:“In 10 years, there will be no more Israel.”

http://www.economicpolicyjournal.com/2012/09/...

Kissinger is right: it's impossible to put 5 million fanatical Jews in a area of millions of Islamic Arabs; the experiment has failed.

Kissinger speaks publicly for the elite money class in the country.

Get your facts right you ignorant dodo. You know as much about the water issue as you do about the Americans who support the Palestinians and what the American's taxpayer dollar is being spent on. It is Israel that is causing the water problem not the Palestinians

Amnesty International has accused Israel of denying Palestinians the right to access adequate water by maintaining total control over the SHARED water resources and pursuing discriminatory policies.

These unreasonably restrict the availability of water in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) and prevent the Palestinians developing an effective water infrastructure there.

“Israel allows the Palestinians access to only a fraction of the shared water resources, which lie mostly in the occupied West Bank, while the unlawful Israeli settlements there receive virtually unlimited supplies. In Gaza the Israeli blockade has made an already dire situation worse,” said Donatella Rovera, Amnesty International’s researcher on Israel and the OPT.

In a new extensive report, Amnesty International revealed the extent to which Israel’s discriminatory water policies and practices are denying Palestinians their right to access to water.

Israel uses more than 80 per cent of the water from the Mountain Aquifer, the main source of underground water in Israel and the OPT, while restricting Palestinian access to a mere 20 per cent.

The Mountain Aquifer is the only source for water for Palestinians in the West Bank, but only one of several for Israel, which also takes for itself all the water available from the Jordan River.

While Palestinian daily water consumption barely reaches 70 litres a day per person, Israeli daily consumption is more than 300 litres per day, four times as much.

In some rural communities Palestinians survive on barely 20 litres per day, the minimum amount recommended for domestic use in emergency situations.

Some 180,000-200,000 Palestinians living in rural communities have no access to running water and the Israeli army often prevents them from even collecting rainwater.

In contrast, Israeli settlers, who live in the West Bank in violation of international law, have intensive-irrigation farms, lush gardens and swimming pools.

Numbering about 450,000, the settlers use as much or more water than the Palestinian population of some 2.3 million.

In the Gaza Strip, 90 to 95 per cent of the water from its only water resource, the Coastal Aquifer, is contaminated and unfit for human consumption. Yet, Israel does not allow the transfer of water from the Mountain Aquifer in the West Bank to Gaza.

Stringent restrictions imposed in recent years by Israel on the entry into Gaza of material and equipment necessary for the development and repair of infrastructure have caused further deterioration of the water and sanitation situation in Gaza, which has reached crisis point.

To cope with water shortages and lack of network supplies many Palestinians have to purchase water, of often dubious quality, from mobile water tankers at a much higher price.

Others resort to water-saving measures which are detrimental to their and their families’ health and which hinder socio-economic development.

“Over more than 40 years of occupation, restrictions imposed by Israel on the Palestinians’ access to water have prevented the development of water infrastructure and facilities in the OPT, consequently denying hundreds of thousand of Palestinians the right to live a normal life, to have adequate food, housing, or health, and to economic development,” said Donatella Rovera.

Israel has appropriated large areas of the water-rich Palestinian land it occupies and barred Palestinians from accessing them.

Here is this woman again

The ANTI THESIS of everything Sheila stands for

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-263183...

the love and compassion and empathy shines out of this old woman's eyes and what she says - amazing lady - a survivor without hatred

"And life is beautiful, love is beautiful, nature and music are beautiful. Everything we experience is a gift, a present we should cherish and pass on to those we love."

Is SHE the picture of everything that is good about religion ??

hatred, vitriol, anger, bitterness .... self righteousness - arrogance - shines out of all of Sheila's posts

Is SHE the picture of everything that is wrong and bad about religion?

It is NOT that Sheila attacks Israel for its treatment of Palestinians - it is the glee, vitriol and hatred with which she does so ... it's the not really caring about the Palestinians - but using them as an opportunity to hate on Israeli jews ...

Nothing to do with religion ... or can religion be hatred too ... twisted in order to suit the agenda of anger and hatred?
