The Parliament meetings to produce the regulations for the non-ionizing
law in Israel have started today, after the Env. ministry delayed the
regulations months, they finally proposed their version of the
regulations, version which doesn't really say anything, besides a
standard of 40 uW/cm2 (10% of the WHO standard), checking 10% of the
antennas each year for radiation level etc...anyway none seem to like
this version, including the parliament members who compose the Env.
committee. and it will have to be changed. It was revealed in the
meeting that all the 3G antennas in Israel are not legal. This is
because the original 2002 law, does not include the 3G frequencies. The
Env ministry wants to erect antennas on schools and kindergarden with
the claim that the distance from antennas doesn't matter only the power,
and the power is lower the more antennas there are, and since all
children talk on the phone we need to behave by precautionary principle
- the more antennas, the less radiation to the ear. And those who are in
the building under the antennas are safe.

(Are other countries as mad as us?) The ministry of Health said with
regard to the study from Weizmann Institue as well as former studies by
prof. Korenstein (DNA damage athermal) and Dr. Schachter (cataract
athermal) that they go into the collection of the other studies and the
WHO will process them, since the health ministry has no ability to
process the studies they wait for the WHO's decisions. The Env. ministry
said with regard to the fact that the WHO standard is updated to 1998,
that the WHO does every year a new evaluation to check whether the
standard should be changed.
