Water war

How anti-Israel NGOs are attacking the country while sabotaging projects meant to help Arabs in Gaza get it right:
"Water is a regional issue, and one that, with close cooperation between all parties, can ensure equitable, maximal access to clean and safe water and help create a more peaceful environment," said Prof. Gerald Steinberg, president of NGO Monitor. "Unfortunately, NGOs would rather politicized this issue and demonize Israel than improve Palestinian access to clean water."

NGO Monitor points out that EWASH, a coalition of NGOs and UN organizations, opposed a desalinization project in Gaza funded by the EU that would improve water supply, trying to justify their opposition by saying the project would "accommodate the occupation" and "legitimize Israeli actions."

A full 11 pieces of disinformation spread by NGOs regarding water are debunked by the report. The key culprits are NGOs Al Haq, Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR), BADIL, Coalition of Women for Peace, Who Profits, and EWASH.

A central false claim by the anti-Israel NGOs is that Israel's limitation of goods into Gaza "prevents Gaza's children from having normal opportunities...to drink clean water."

Despite the charges, the major cause of Gaza's water shortage is in fact the poor maintenance of water and sewage within Gaza, by which the Hamas terrorist government has long siphoned off aid and funds to its terrorist infrastructure while neglecting necessary civilian infrastructures.
I'll bet those NGOs must be celebrating about all the people whose lives they made miserable by scuttling these projects meant to help them.
