Government anti-Semitism conference endorses net censorship

A government-convened international conference on anti-Semitism on Thursday issued an action plan calling for internet censorship as a remedy for anti-Jewish sentiment.

Recommendations coming out of the three day meeting included the scrubbing of Holocaust denial websites from the internet and the omission of “hate websites and content” from web searches.

Convened by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs Ministry, the Global Forum for Combating Anti-Semitism is a biennial gathering bringing together Jewish community leaders, civil society representatives and diplomats to discuss ways to rising levels of anti-Jewish prejudice.
