The people who are killing the Dead Sea

by Phil Schneider

The Dead Sea is indeed in peril of drying up. However, there are a few solutions that would completely solve the problem. Desalination or major water canals. If a desalination plant would be set up that would connect between the Mediterranean Sea, the Dead Sea, and Israeli farms, the issue would disappear and Israel would be able to prosper from the salt deposits of the Dead Sea in many ways that they are not able to until now.

But a water canal that runs down from the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea or up from the Gulf of Aqaba near Eilat to the Dead Sea would also change the entire situation. Nas Daily is correct in noting that the drying up of the Dead Sea is indeed massive and fast. But this is one of those problems that does have a real solution. Israel should not stop using the salt and mineral rich waters of the Dead Sea to continue to export Dead Sea products worldwide. Israel should work on expanding this one-of-a-kind business, by using more and more of this natural wonder.

But Israel must decide that if Jordan will complicate the building of a canal, then Israel will make a “longer” canal that will connect the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea. In truth, the Dead Sea waterline issue should be the perfect thing for Israel and Jordan to have joint cooperation. If both countries could agree to work together to bolster tourism on both of their sides through joint products, both countries would gain. This should not be a problem for decades. Israel and Jordan should find a way for mutual cooperation.
