Irony: Two year ban on fishing in the Sea of Galilee

Israel on Sunday imposed a two-year ban on fishing in the Sea of Galilee, halting a practice that dates back to biblical times when tradition holds Jesus and his disciples fished those waters.

“The government will pass a plan to halt fishing in the Sea of Galilee for a period of two years,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the start of a weekly cabinet meeting.

The ban was called for to help preserve fish stocks which have plummeted dramatically.

“We will support the fishermen and make sure the lake is restocked with fish,” Netanyahu said.
