Weeping for the Jordan

The Jordan River, which begins near Mount Hermon on the Syria-Lebanon border and flows from the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea, is an endangered river. Most of its water is diverted for agricultural or domestic use; what remains is polluted by sewage and agricultural runoff. This is a political, as well as an environmental issue, as Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and the Palestinian Authority all have claims on the waters of the Jordan and its tributaries.
