Firstly the Dead Sea between Palestine and Jordan. Secondly, it is called dead because there is no fish in it It seems more beautiful than the Jordanian side

There may be hope, fresh water springs are now flowing into the Dead Sea. Floating won't be as easy as the spring water dilutes the salt water but that will probably take years and years. https://youtu.be/XzXw3fGP2Tw

Save dead sea guys,, It's the responsibility of the country to save it's natural resources.. We have similar problem with Taj Mahal in India, as it becomes more & more polluted every years, the colour of the Pure White Marble of Taj Mahal Monument also become more & more faded in years ... Mainly because of industrial air pollution..

It's a place where punishment was meted out by God to sinners and Christians and Jews bathe in it in skimpy clothes instead of staying away. You'd think they'd avoid it. Don't understand these people at all.
