Fascinating. And what's even more incredible is the list of donor countries collaborating with Jordan, Israel and the Palestine, to finance the feasibility study: :worship:
It's wonderful when countries work together peacefully.Four donor countries — France, Japan, the United States and the Netherlands — have committed themselves to participate in financing the $15 million study. The study will look at the environmental and social consequences of transferring water from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, Jordan's Minister of Water and Irrigation Mohammed Thafer al-Alem said Sunday.The Israeli Minister of National Infrastructure, Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, said the "study is an excellent example for cooperation, peace and conflict reduction." :yeah: http://msnbcmedia3.msn.com/j/msnbc/Components/Photos/061211/061211_deadsea_hmed_7a.hmedium.jpg
