The Dead Sea, The Sea of Galilee and the River Jordan

//The Dead Sea, The Sea of Galilee and the River Jordan

The Dead Sea is not a sea, but a big salt lake. The Sea of Galilee is not a sea, but another big salt lake.  Why the confusion?  Incorrect translation strikes again!  Both are connected to the River Jordan.  The entire water system is in crisis, due to unauthorized diversion for agriculture and over harvesting of dead sea salt for commercial products.  So far the governments of Israel, Jordan and Palestine have struggled to regulate water and come up with a canal plan.  Given all religious and political drama in this part of the world, you would think solving a water crisis would be easy by comparison.
