The Iranian regime shouts, “Death to Israel!” In response, Israel shouts, “Life! To the Iranian people!”
While the world may hate Israel, the people of Israel continue to prove that their nation is a force for good in this chaotic world.
The most recent example that proves this point is Israel’s gracious offer to the Iranian people.
The Middle East suffers from a lack of water, all of the nations there are constantly searching for new ways to get fresh, clean water. Also, the countries are almost constantly arguing/fighting over existing water rights. (As Iraq and Turkey do over the Euphrates River.) In many of these nations, a huge portion of the GDP is spent in cultivating water, and even reclaiming water from the sea. However, desalinization is a difficult and expensive process and some of the poorer nations in the region simply don’t have the resources to produce enough fresh water for their entire population.
The one exception to this water problem is Israel. Israel has been at the cutting edge of water technology for decades and has even been able to reclaim parts of the Negev Desert for use as farmland. (Read that again – Israel has turned DESERT into FARMLAND.)
Now Israel is making an offer to the Iranian people as a show of their goodwill – they are offering the Iranians access to their water technology… for free. They’re willingly helping the Iranian people, even as the Iranian government refuses to do so.
Here’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s message to the Iranian people:
Today I’m going to offer an unprecedented offer to Iran. It relates to water. The Iranian people are victims of a cruel and tyrannical regime that denies them vital water. Israel stands with the people of Iran, and that is why I want to help save countless Iranian lives.
Here’s how: Iran’s meteorological organization says that nearly 96% of Iran suffers from some levels of drought. Issa Kalantari, a former Iranian agricultural minister, said that 50 million Iranians could be forced out of their homes due to environmental damage: 50 million. Millions of Iranian children are suffering due to mismanagement, to incompetence, and the theft of vital resources by the Iranian regime. Now, Israel also has water challenges; we’ve developed cutting-edge technologies to address them. Israel recycles nearly 90% of its wastewater. That’s far more than any other country on earth. We invented drip irrigation. Our technology targets individual plants with exactly the nutrients they need for each plant. Israel has the know-how to prevent environmental catastrophe in Iran.
I want to share this information with the people of Iran. Sadly, Iran bans Israelis from visiting, so we’ll have to get creative.
We will launch a Farsi website with detailed plans on how Iranians can recycle their wastewater. We will show how Iranian farmers can save their crops and feed their families. The Iranian regime shouts, “Death to Israel!” In response, Israel shouts, “Life! To the Iranian people!”
The people of Iran are good and decent; they shouldn’t have to face such a cruel regime alone. We are with you. We will help so that millions of Iranians don’t have to suffer. The hatred of Iran’s regime will not stop the respect and the friendship between our two peoples.
