In 1982 the West Bank's entire hydrological system was integrated into the Israeli national water company Mekorot.

The left and other secularists failed to mount a serious challenge to Islamization. The acceptance of Islam by the bulk of the population does not signify cal­lous indifference to the slaughter of individual leftists; rather, it is an expression of despair. The population feels powerless.
