Israel is running short of water. A growing population and rising incomes have increased demand for fresh water, while a four-year drought has created what Shalom Simhon, the agriculture minister, calls ‚Äúa deep water crisis.‚ÄĚ
The problem isn‚Äôt only in Israel. Many arid regions of the globe, including the American West, are dealing with growing populations and shrinking water supplies. Global warming could make matters even worse.
‚ÄúOur experiences tell us that environmental stress, due to lack of water, may lead to conflict and would be greater in poor nations,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúPopulation growth will make the problem worse. So will climate change. As the global economy grows, so will its thirst. Many more conflicts lie just over the horizon.‚ÄĚ Some economists suggest that arid countries should focus on growing only those crops that give them a competitive advantage, like water-sipping grapes and...
Don't worry, Kenny, this is a rhetorical question, Does God Have a Future for Israel?: A Study of Romans 11. Of course the USA will support Israel! Genesis 12 1.

I would expect Israel become one of the world's experts are water recycling and perhaps the conversion of sea water to potable, which of course will improve the lot of many countries, including URL=http://bibleprobe.com/muhammad.htm>Muhammadan ones as well.

It's so easy! Why I expect both Obama and McCain to be flying over there with bottles of Dasani at this very minute to show which candidate is more pro-Israel.
