YouTube govt censorship

Since the attempted bombing on El Al flight 1235, Israeli government has blocked over 5.425 million Israeli Internet users from accessing some videos from the popular website Youtube. Those numbers were the latest since 2009. The Israeli government has systematically blocked videos that it deemed unsafe. According to the CIA government webpage Israel is ranked 51 out of 217 countries with the most Internet users. It is unclear if popular Israeli Youtube videos are available for viewing. We are contacting Youtube and in addition asking the Israeli government when this blockade will end for the Israeli citizens.
