Nakba 2.0: Lost Palestinian Villages
I am absolutely no fan of Zochrot with their Ethnicracy ( a neologism they invented) Solution for the Palestinian- Israeli Conflict whereby the solution is ethnic swamping by returning Palestinian refugees ( even a bigger fantasy than the Two State Solution) but at considerable expense they have developed iNakba pinpointing with GPS accuracy the Nakba.
A click on iNakba, which the Zochrot NGO developed , reveals a hidden world and another side of Zion. One definitely not created by Zion. One created by the enermies of Zion when they broadcast to the Arab citizens of Palestine to flee , get out of the way so that the 680,00 Jews and their 1948 settlements could be bulldozed into the Mediterranean. These same Energies of Zion, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Syria never accept defeat and then gave the Hang Ten command to these Palestinian refugees to remain in their makeshift refugee camps and not return to their homes or disperse in the Arab Diaspora.
The Romans, of course, realised the benefits of plentiful fresh water in the Kabara valley and designed various methods by which to channel this water to the citizens of Caesarea, nearly five kilometers (3 miles) away. Whilst renovating the nature reserve preserve, excavators discovered a dam, which utilised three wooden floodgates to elevate the water, and control its flow through ground level aqueducts, chiseled out of stone by Roman crafstmen. The 200 metre long dam created a reservoir of 6000 dunams (about 2500 acres/ 1000 ha), creating a large lake in the Kabara valley with a virtually unlimited supply of fresh water fed by the stream, springs and runoff from the nearby Carmel mountains. As ever, the brilliant Roman engineering solution was very well constructed and a rebuilt version can be seen there today, as can the rebuilt Byzantine era waterwheel for the flour mill which used the power of the dammed river.
