The Story of Water Theft - Syrians have their eye on Israel's Lake Kineret because of droughts
By Dr. Gy Bechor
Syria is sustaining a tremendous dilemma, and is encountering an enormous financial demise of its agricultural downturn because of lack of water. The Efrat River that originates in Turkey is being redirected to huge dams and only a trickle is being allowed to flow to Syria, Farmers in droves are being forced to Abandon their land and move to tent cities. This situation is being noted in the Arab media and investigated by the UN. The farmers over worked the land and over dug an abundant amount of wells to water their overwhelming wheat crops for export, when farmers objected to the government request to maintain production, farmers were jailed some to 7 years, The Baht government has foolishly ignored and proudly exploited and neglected the farmers which were predominantly Kurds whom are now impoverished. With the increase of the threat of lack of water the Syrian eye is pointed at the lake Kineret in the north of Israel which its own waters are dwindling. There for the Turks have a great interest in Syria annexing the lake Kineret for agricultural purpose. The Syrians are talking about the Syrian Golan Heights and its honor that was lost; In fact, they talk about something entirely different. Dare we say that Israel is not the loop? Is the American existential ignoring the regime distress in Damascus? If the water was gone, so, it may also happen with the regime itself. Therefore we as a Jewish nation should never ignore the grave situation, not even for one second.
