According to a 1999 research by Sherman and Martin, “The politics of Water in the Middle East: An Israeli Perspective on the Hydro-Political aspects of the Conflict”, “between 80% and 90% of the total subterranean flows in the aquifer originate from falling on permeable outcrops in the West Bank”. This implies that a Palestinian State in the West Bank will never arise because it would weaken Israel’s position and sovereignty in the region, and this would entail the return of millions of refugees from the surrounding areas.
There was a time when you could swim anywhere off Gaza’s coast. Not now. Not in the aftermath of war.
Smashed sewer systems, broken pipe work, and damaged pumping stations have seen to that. Raw sewage is tipping out into the Med and drinking water is in frighteningly short supply – not a tap runs with stuff, every drop must come by bottle through the blockade.
That defiant spirit that has carried Gaza through so much is bruised and at times itself seems fractured. There are just so many young people without jobs, and without proper homes.
