Diversity best targeted, not mandated
The Dead Sea is considered to be the lowest point on Earth. Its waters are said to be the saltiest. No fish live in it. No plants grow along its shores. Egyptians were known to extract minerals from it for embalming their pharaohs. Throughout time, the Dead Sea is said to have seen King David, King Herod, Jesus and John the Baptist walk along its shore.
