Israel airport wifi blocks political sites

“Israel’s Airport Authority said on Thursday it is examining its wireless Internet service at Ben Gurion airport after learning it blocks access to a range of Israeli political websites.

The restrictions were first reported by Haaretz newspaper, which said the wifi service was blocking access to sites run by leftist organisations such as Peace Now and Breaking the Silence, as well as right-wing groups like the Legal Forum for the Land of Israel.

Wifi access at the airport is provided by 012, an Israeli Internet service provider.”
