5.0 out of 5 stars amazing information July 24, 2010
By Luther
Excellent, unbiased overview of a top secret topic, a water-grab trying to get in under the radar. Nile water to Israel? Yes. Nine countries border the Nile River. Egypt is the last, before what's left of the Nile flows into the Mediterranean. (FYI the other 8 are Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya, DRC, Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania.)

Israel does not border the Nile, not by a long shot.

The Nile waters are increasingly polluted and diminished. Eight of the countries are trying to divide the water equitably. But Egypt has said that a 3rd pipeline/tunnel under the Suez Canal would bring Nile water to Israel--it's called the Northern Sinai Agricultural Development Project (NSADP) but would take water to Rafah. Why? You probably guessed it.

This water would be for Israel, not for Egypt, and not for the other eight countries bordering the Nile, which also need more water.

1.0 out of 5 stars A useless article July 15, 2006
This is a stupid article. Bleier dislikes Israel, and he's afraid that Israel might get some water from the Nile. After all, Israel is rich enough to buy some! Well, if Israel does buy some water from willing sellers, that sounds fine to me. As a matter of fact, Israel is in fact rich enough to desalinate sea water if it really needs to. It would prefer not to, but it could even do that.

Bleier comments that there are too many people chasing too few resources. And that only the strong and fortunate survive. Well, if that is the case, I would strongly recommend that people spend their time trying to improve things for themselves, rather than wasting it in an effort to hurt a few Jews. Those who demand to attack Israel will probably succeed in doing just that, but in a competitive world, they will pay a huge price for doing something so counterproductive.
