Israel Mobilizes its "Internet D Force"

Salam, I found this on an Israeli Website; The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent the following letter to pro-Israeli groups. Their mission: search web sites and chat room for "facts" that may harm "Israel's image" and take appropriate "corrective" measures. The following letter was published on EI: ___________________________________________________
