This article was originally published in June in "Foreign Policy in Focus" but has recently been republished in other places, including The Ecologist:
Literally dying of thirst? Funny, I have not heard about a single Palestinian Arab dying of thirst! I must have missed all the articles.
But when I searched for them, I found some interesting photos of how scarce water is in the West Bank:
Like recent photos on the Facebook page of the Palestine Water Sports School:
The Dolphin swim club is still open for business:
So are the Al Waha pools in Tulkarem:
There are a whole lot more.
Don't they know, as they swim in their Olympic-sized pools, that their fellow Palestinians are literally dying of thirst only a few miles away????
The rest of the article is also filled with the usual lies. I have previously discussed how Palestinians politicize the water issue and the truth behind the water libels.
I don't know if The Ecologist is a respected website or not, but after this fiasco, their reputation should be pretty bad.
