Host John Roberts and his guest Samer Jaber discuss the Palestinian water situation. Most Palestinians are forced by Israeli occupation forces to survive (if they can) with 24 quarts of water per person per day. Meanwhile Israeli settlers face no limit, watering their lawns and in some cases even maintaining swimming pools. That's one quart per hour for cooking, cleaning, bathing, and toilet use. Think about this: one flush of one low-flow toilet uses 6 quarts, one-quarter of the daily water allotment. Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers have been shooting holes in Palestinians' rooftop rain collection tanks.
