A cornerstone of the early Zionist ideal was “to make the desert bloom”. The water needed to achieve this unsustainable dream comes mainly from the exploitation of the river Jordan basin. 75 per cent of the water of the river was diverted to Israeli territories as early as 1964. Israel’s discriminatory policies and practices denying Palestinians access to water are striking if compared to Israeli intensive-irrigation farms, lush gardens and swimming pools.
