Possible corrections to the article[edit]

Just a few points to make ... - The Wadi Rum area is on the Jordan side of the Wadi, but is quite distinct from Wadi Arabia - I believe that the purpose of diverting Red Sea water was to replenish the Dead Sea. There's be no need to desalinate as the Dead Sea has a very high salinity, and gravity could do much of the work of moving the water - but gravity and desalination have little to do with each other.

It is NEVER referred to as "Arabah" -- where did the "B" come from? Scott Adler 01:35, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

MORE POINTS: 1) It is never referred to as either!! Where did the "Wadi" go?! 2) There are 5 big tribes on the Jordanian side in addition to 4 or 5 smaller ones, and these tribes have been in Wadi Araba for hundreds of years. The "administrative district" of Wadi Araba had a population of around 7000 distributed among 8 settlement, in addition to 4 Bedouin population clusters. So your claim that "there are almost no settlements on its Jordanian side and just a few kibbutzim on the Israeli" is totally biased, false, and a low shot at distorting history. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.35.88.210 (talk) 13:08, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

No word of expelled, expunged and tormented bedouins. Instead a likely state founded PR article.[edit]

Blame Winston Churchill, since he was the one who divided Transjordan and Palestine along this line in the early 1920s. Or blame the Ottomans, since according to the Ottoman legal system, the Bedouins didn't actually own most of the land that they made use of during the 19th century (which set them up for problems under later rulers).
