Water concessions could yield Middle East peace

Edited by Helen Gavaghan. My one reservation about the author's meaning in the editorial above is that as editor I wanted to change the place "they used to call the Holy Land" to the place "many call the Holy Land". I have left the ambiguity in the words the author submitted.
