2Bnaked saidLook you have running water here and a toilet to piss in. Go back to palestine and see what you get.
You're basically mocking Palestine's water crisis in the name of imperialism. There's a billion human beings who don't have access to clean drinkable water in general, Muslim or not. Millions die each year from a water related disease. What good is being done by privatizing water?
Much of the water system, like the electrical grid, in the disputed territories was built by Israel after 1967.
Before that only 10% of households were connected, while today almost all are.
In 2009, overall water use by Arab residents in the former so-called "West Bank" (of Trans/Jordan of 19 years, before which it was known, for thousands of years, as Judea & Samaria) was UP by an overall factor of 3.33x, with per capita usage (despite the much larger population) up by 22%. During the same time, overall Israeli use dropped by 21.4% (70.2% per capita).
Israel supplies more water to the PA than it is required to by the Oslo Agreement.
Your graphic suggests the problem is that Israel forbids the drilling of wells. That's not true, they only need to be authorized and coordinated to protect the aquifers. Unlike in Gaza, where between 1994 and 2009 the number of wells more than tripled, with more than 3400 new wells. Mismanagement that has damaged the aquifer allowing seawater to seep in.
The graphic also misleads by showing only Palestinian Arab water usage from one aquifer and ignoring other sources of water (but not doing the same for Israeli usage, e.g. desalination and reuse, skewing the comparison). When those are included, the per capita allowance isn't 70 litres/day but 160, well over the WHO standard of 100.The world’s largest and cheapest reverse-osmosis desalination plant is up and running in Israel.https://www.technologyreview.com/s/534996/megascale-desalinationIsrael Bets On Recycled Water To Meet Its Growing Thirsthttp://www.npr.org/sections/parallels/2015/06/21/415795367/israel-bets-on-recycled-water-to-meet-its-growing-thirst
The Arabs in the territories have less water, but no one in the territories dies from water shortages or diseases.

While your graphic makes no mention of it, estimates (2009) are that there is 36% water loss within the PA system. So rather than use water to falsely demonize Israel and war-monger, fixing leaks and theft may be a better first answer. Adding water reuse programs (as Israel has) and desalination plants (in Gaza) would also go along way.
It's worth adding that USAID and other donors proposed to build a water desalination plant in Gaza some 20 years ago - and that Arafat rejected this. He preferred to limit resources and fight over them than to ensure that his own people had sufficient water resources.
