    to President Moshe Katsav paints a discouraging
    picture regarding environmental realities.

    The report states that a growing number of Israelis no
    longer trust the integrity of tap water and 72% of the
    population drinks bottled water. The study also points
    to growing concerns pertaining to the alarming
    increase in the placement of unauthorized cellular
    telephone antennas around the country due to health
    hazards associated with the antennas” electromagnetic
    emissions.

    The report also cites the bleak realities surrounding
    the bottle deposit law, stating that most bottles are
    not recycled and the program has been a failure since
    its inception.

    Environmentalists speak of an overall deteriorating
    state regarding the national environment, calling for
    more aggressive policies to protect natural resources.
