Palestinian farmers suffer the most, because agriculture in the west bank is becoming more and more difficult. But the water crisis is also becoming more visible in israel.

It has not rained extensively in the middle east for five years. The winter rains have simply failed to materialize. Whether climate change is to blame or not, no one can say for sure at the moment. One thing is clear: the region has not seen such a long dry spell in a long time, and it could aggravate the already difficult political situation even more.

Everyone knew that in portugal "rumpelfubball", that the team had offered in the run-up, no pot can be won, the deficits in playing technique are much too gross.

That’s why the completely exaggerated criticism that is now being leveled at the players is dishonest and objectively mendacious in the highest degree. Exactly those who are currently criticizing the players and calling them "bad guys" are the ones who are not "upper goon" and "europe’s fools" they were praising to the skies just a week ago, after the holland game. A reasonably good half against a divided and completely indisposed dutch team and the drawn outcome against this one "arch-enemy" the number of pages was enough to talk and write the national team into the final.
