And while the depiction is seen as a sign of abundance, it's also literalNothing to do with the Bible mate, it's even less mysterious than that. Dream on.Israel rations Palestinians to trickle of water Some 180,000-200,000 Palestinians living in rural communities have no access to running water and the Israeli army often prevents them from even collecting rainwater. In contrast, Israeli settlers, who live in the West Bank in violation of international law, have intensive-irrigation farms, lush gardens and swimming pools. QuoteThe Israel Water Authority did not respond to repeated requests from Haaretz to confirm the figures and comment on West Bank water shortages.

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
