Israel bill again proposes massive Internet censorship

http://j.mp/Vcxidi  (Intellect or Insanity)

    "Israel is to attempt, again, to pass a bill that authorizes police
     officers to issue warrants to Internet service providers to block or
     restrict access to specific websites involved either in gambling,
     child pornography or copyright infringement. The bill itself proposes
     that such administrative procedures shall be clandestine and that
     court decisions shall be made ex-parte, where some of the court's
     ruling will not be even disclosed to the owner of the website, and the
     court may hear and use inadmissible evidence."

A proposed bill, not yet a law.  Of course, most of Israel's neighbors
are already far more restrictive with their Internet censorship.
