1. More than one needed

Water is desperately needed for local agriculture, water promised to Jordan, water taken by the PA, the Kineret (or else it will turn into a salty puddle), the Jordan River, and the otherwise dying Yam Hamelach (Dead Sea). Plans should be made for the immediate start of two massive desalinization plants and even with these it would take up to ten years of operation to fill the Kineret and Yam Hamelach up to their old levels. Israel has simply agreed to provide water that otherwise does not exist and needs to take steps to protect the future of its environment.
