Nasty Water

Dead Fish in Polluted Water

One of the current struggles in the of Israel (the modern one) is water. Like every , they need water to drink, bathe, irrigate, and even manufure. As of now, the land is (by and large) dry. Water is not yet a war issue, but may be.

Due to its “Law of Return” (those who are of Jewish descent can immigrate and citzenship), Israel has seen a constant influx of people, especially from s that are more anti-Jewish. In addition, Israel has been fairly ful technology-wise, and others immigrate for opportunity. Regardless, the more people that come, the more water is required.
As of 2015, more than half of Israel’s water is provided via desaliniztion. This technology takes undrinkable (almost poisionous) sea (salt) water, and turns it into drinkable water. Due to its high proportion of sun, there is a drive to turn this into a self-ing process, meaning almost unlimited “clean” water at a very minimal cost.
Sometimes “known” bad water, such as the case with sea water or the water at Marah, isn’t the bad, limiting, or stopping thing that we think it is. When confronting our “bad water” it requires new thinking or, when ’s involved, a miracle.
When confronting our bad water, do we it over to , to pursue to overcome, or do we up?
