Apparently, there are several areas considerably below sea level and a sea-level canal would introduce water from the Mediterranean, presumably increasing rainfall in the area around the new seas.

Yeah I remember that too. On a related note I wonder if sea level raise due to global warming could achieve the same thing without canals. Where, and how high, are the natural barriers that are currently keeping these below sea level areas from flooding now? Would there be enough sea level raise to breach them?
Evidence separates truth from fiction.
