Pro-Israel, anti-Jihad websites still banned in Tel Aviv

Last Autumn I blogged about the fact that the Tel Aviv Municipality free wifi service (FREE_TLV) was banning pro-Israel, anti-Jihad websites. I did an updated check a few days ago and, as you can see from these iphone screenshots, the ban is still in place. So it is still the case that websites like thereligionofpeace (which simply documents jihadist attacks and news stories) is blocked for "Discrimination" while Robert Spencer's jihadwatch is blocked as (strangely) "Advocacy Organisation".   It is not surprising therefore that so many Israelis I meet continue to so drastically underestimate the level of hatred targeted at them from around the world (the main stream media in Israel is no more informative about the Islamist threat than the main stream media in Europe).

Fortunately, one well known pro-Israel,  anti-Jihad sites is not blocked - notably Pamela Geller's. I also checked the following less well known sites in response to requests from my previous post about this and can confirm that,,, and indeed my own site are not blocked.

Fortunately, the bad taste left by the Tel Aviv Muncipality's bizarre political correctness, is compensated by the beauty and fun of Tel Aviv beach itself which the video above and photos below hopefully illustrate.

Maybe muslims use the FREE Wi-Fy while Jews PAY for their internet, so they block the FREE internet so that muslims don't do what muslims ALWAYS do: Namely get upset and kill innocent people.

Just a thought.

I was saddened to have discovered this as well on a recent trip to Israel. Morever, I could not gain access during a recent trip to Milan…came up as a hate site. Crazy.
