It's great to see the Jordanians and Israelis cooperate on an important project as this is.


Israel and Jordan sign ‘historic’ water deal to save Dead Sea
‘Most significant agreement’ since 1995 peace treaty will see construction of ‘Red-Dead’ pipeline and provide water for both nations

Israel and Jordan signed a “historic” water cooperation agreement Thursday to carry out the “Red-Dead” project, which will supply water for both Israelis and Jordanians and replenish the dwindling Dead Sea.


Calling it “the most significant agreement since the peace treaty with Jordan,” Israeli Energy and Water Resources Minister Silvan Shalom traveled to Jordan to sign the agreement with his Jordanian counterpart, Hazem Nasser, in the presence of US State Department and World Bank officials.


“This is the culmination of a productive cooperation between the nations, that will help restore the Dead Sea, and provide solutions to Jordan’s water problems,” Shalom told Israeli economic outlet TheMarker.

Oddly when all nations go against Israel, Jews will find sanctuary in Petra. Good on Jordan.
I don't think you will ever see all nations go against Israel. For instance, I can't see India, China, Japan or South Korea ever going against Israel. However, it is nice when you see a Jewish nation and a Muslim nation cooperating with each other.
