Water Stories - Whom To Believe?
AMMAN, Jordan, May 11 (UPI) -- The Jordan River, revered as the baptism site of Jesus, is now only a sluggish, sewage-choked stream whose waters are unfit to bathe in, environmentalists say...."The world's most holy river is under threat," the Zalul Environmental Association said in an open letter to the Pope. "Water from the once-proud Jordan River is being diverted for domestic and agricultural use, leaving the lower part of the river a shriveled stream with little to no fresh water and filled with sewage."...The sewage comes from poorly managed septic systems in Palestinian West Bank cities and from waste water generated by Jordan and Syria.
