Day Zero is rapidly approaching in Cape Town, South Africa. When Day Zero arrives, Cape Town will become the world’s first major city to run out of water. The people of Cape Town should blame South Africa’s corrupt government. The government of South Africa has chosen to appease the anti-Semitic BDS movement, and its growing Muslim population, by refusing to accept any help from Israel. Despite Israel being the world leader (by far) in water recycling, water preservation, water desalination, and drip irrigation, South Africa’s government has stubbornly refused to work with Israel. Pro-jihad President Jacob Zuma, who has ties to Hamas, would rather watch his citizens die of thirst before accepting help from Israel.
Israel, a country that is over 60 percent desert, is now the world’s preeminent water power. Israel has proudly shared its water expertise and technology with 150 countries, including many Muslim-majority countries in Africa. Israel’s water expertise has also been invaluable to Asia, particularly in countries such as India, China, and Vietnam. In late 2015, dozens of ecologists from 10 Latin American countries came to Israel to learn about Israel’s mastery of desalination and drip irrigation. In the United States, Israel’s cooperation with California, Nevada, Colorado, and many other states, has produced incredible results. Even the “Palestinian” Authority has benefited when working with Israel on water conservation. Israel has also provided water technology and training to Egypt and Jordan.
In 2016, South Africa was in the middle of their devastating drought, which was sure to cause the water crisis we are seeing today. Naturally there was significant discussion among certain South African officials about contacting the world’s leading water power (Israel) for help. In February 2016, a water conference was scheduled to take place in Johannesburg. The purpose of the conference was to provide South Africa with much needed education and assistance on issues related to water conservation. Unfortunately, the BDS movement then went in for the kill and successfully lobbied the South African government to cancel the water conference due to Israel’s participation.
Members of the BDS movement in South Africa used their hatred for Israel to jeopardize the well-being of their country and their fellow citizens. A spokesman for the BDS movement stated that “the rug has been pulled from the Israeli ambassador, who will be able to exploit our very serious water crisis for his own cheap publicly and whitewashing of his regime. Israel water technology is not unique or special; such technology is widely available through other more friendly countries.” Oh really? Well, two years after that statement by the BDS representative, South Africa’s water crisis is raging, with no end in sight.
This disgraceful decision was not a surprise, as South Africa’s growing Muslim population has made South Africa a flagship country for the BDS movement. In the last few months alone, the BDS movement has been able to win some significant victories. They were able to convince the Tshwane University of Technology to boycott and divest from Israel. In late 2017, South Africa also shamelessly downgraded relations with Israel, a move that the BDS movement applauded gleefully. Despite all of this mistreatment and abuse, the government of Israel continues to offer help, to which they are receiving an answer of “no, thanks” from hostile ANC officials.
So what can the 3.7 million inhabitants of Cape Town expect on April 12, 2018, aka Day Zero? Well, water resources are expected to hit 13 percent capacity. Citizens of Cape Town will be required to travel to one of 200 water collection points, where they will only be able to collect 25 liters of water at best. The water crisis does not even begin to describe the economic impact on the South African city, since many tourists will likely stay away. Many other industries will certainly suffer as well.
The citizens of South Africa should to ask their corrupt and stubborn government some questions. For example, what would have happened if the government of South Africa had accepted help from Israel during the initial stages of this drought? Could this water crisis have been avoided if the South African President had been more concerned about his country and its people than he was about appeasing his Muslim supporters and the BDS movement? One must also ask if the UN will hold the government of South Africa accountable for this blatant corruption and disregard for its own people?
This catastrophe should also be a lesson to the people who support the BDS movement. The lesson is this: Support the BDS movement at your own peril, because it is your countries, your citizens, your schools, and your businesses that will suffer. Israel, on the other hand, will continue to thrive, as more and more countries (especially in Africa) realize the value of having solid relations with the tiny Middle Eastern country.
