I am sorry but the Palestinians have not done an effort to preserve their landscape, just take a look at what is going on around rammallah, hebron, nablus, beitlehem, jericho, etc... I agree that Israel is not environmental friendly place, but so is Palestine. The only reason that the landscape is somewhat preserved in Palestine, is because of the military occupation, Oslo accords that stipulates the division of Palestine into three zones, hence Zone C looks preserved apart for the settlements and the amount of trash. you are right to criticize Israels credentials, but you should also have some autocritisism.
