|Emergency Fresh Drinking Water|
Set up near our synagogue
I wrote it, because there are major water problems in our area, from the Shomron (Samaria,) south to Gush Shiloh, the Jewish villages around Shiloh, Eli, Ma'ale Levona and the many smaller hilltop communities. Simply put:
"The infrastructure is kaput!"I wonder if the bureaucrats/politicians who planned and budgeted for this water piping infrastructure 35-40 years ago are/were at fault. Whether it was accidental bad planning, or did they purposely sabotage the post-1967 Zionist settle the Land undertaking, intentionally underestimating, under-planning the the future population and attractiveness to Jews from all over?
If I had a dollar for all those who had unabashedly asked me why I'm here in Shiloh during the early years we were here, I'd be very rich. Most people were under the impression that we were just playing a game, like a complicated expensive demonstration.
Contrary to all the doomsayers and doubters, the Jewish population of Judea, Samaria, Jordan Valley etc has grown and thrived. We have schools, industries, businesses, stores and even a university. And yes, we're here to stay. There's a second and even a third generation raising their children here and going to the same schools.
Too bad the Israeli Government did such a cruddy shortsighted job in setting up the water system here. Now they will just have to fix it. And this time they must plan properly for a growing vibrant population!
