Israel is just an exotic locale for the summer homes of rich Jews who prefer to live full time in the US or Europe. Since it is merely a temporary colonial settlement, Israelis do not feel compelled to clean up after themselves or protect the environment. Just look at how the Russian and Brooklynite colonials dispense of their trash in Hebron and elsewhere. They do not love the land, as the Natives do. If you want to save the Sea & land, give a Palestinian the portfolio for Environmental Protection.
