For nearly 10 years various MKs are trying to pass bills to filter sites To the public, claiming "public protection". In a new amendment to the law passed today by the Legislative Committee, it was decided that unauthorized content should be blocked online, proactively for all users, unless they explicitly ask to remove the block.

Filter the Internet? Why?

The initiators of the proposal explained that its goal was to prevent children from being exposed to other sexual and offensive content. By law as it is today - Internet companies are obliged to provide free site filtering service at customer request, but filtering does not come by default. Because of this, many are completely unaware of this possibility and the result is that many children are exposed to inappropriate content.

porn-censor

According to law makers, 60 percent of children in Israel from the age of 15 to 19 are exposed to pornographic sites. The new amendment will require surfing providers to filter the sites by default, and those who want to prevent filtering will need to take an active step and request filtering out.

It seems that the change in the law is apparently small. On any person who wishes to receive Non-filtered is only required to contact, request removal of the filter and prove that it is chalky - and the filter will be canceled as before. So what is the problem that arises from the bill?

The Israeli Internet Organization Referred to this bill and its reservations were sent in July this year to members of the Ministerial Committee on Legislation. According to the union, Offensive content as defined by law is content that is not legally prevented from reviewing. According to them, there is a need to deal with abusive content by educating, explaining and exercising parental authority, but when dealing is by law, censorship is actually done on the Internet. Information that should be publicly available and not a legal issue to look at - will be blocked to the entire population, which violates the Basic Freedom of Expression Law, Freedom of Information and Freedom of Practice.

Another problem raised by the union is Infringement of privacy. Anyone who wants to open the filter for him will be listed in the companies' databases as a porn consumer or other allegedly offensive content. Such information is in your hands May be leaked to the wrong hands.

Network censorship

And where will it end?

One of the important problems raised by the Israeli Internet organization is the slippery slope: The bill imposes on Internet providers the role of the censor whose purpose is to examine and monitor which sites provide suitable content and which are not. The role of the web content cop is not supposed to be the role of a surfing provider. Blocking offensive content on the Internet can be interpreted in a broader way and change. There is no way of knowing where a path of content-blocking may lead to the possession of a political or economic interest.

Beyond the reservations of the Israeli Internet organization, questions are also raised regarding the control of abusive content. Art and illustration study sites may display users' content that is implicit or blatant. In such cases, will the entire site be blocked to surfers? What about sites about medicine that show anatomy of the human body? Will a breast cancer awareness campaign showing exposed organs be blocked by the state?

Different people are offended by different content - the same content may be offensive to some population rather than another. For example, a picture of women in a swimsuit may be considered offensive to certain populations in Israel, will a party representing the same population pressure to add to the black list also campaigns for YouTube swimwear? Will she succeed in her mission?

noporn2In general, many of the largest sites nowadays are social networks, and are based on content produced by surfers themselves. On sites such as Twitter and Instagram, photos are uploaded that may be considered offensive, quite a few porn players have an active Twitter profile Most blatantly to their user pages on a regular basis. Is there any intention to block every toyer and instagram from surfers? Are the initiators of the law planning to monitor every page that will be set up on these sites and check whether the images are appropriate or not? Is it even possible to implement? Who decides on the matter and how will censorship be carried out?

Unfortunately, in the amendment to the bill, we did not find any technical explanation as to its actual implementation methods.

  1. For those who read the bill, it also speaks of violent content, so that means sites that review games like call of duty can also be blocked, and where will it stop?

  2. In the end they created a situation where a person who does not watch porn at all should ask !!! To remove a "porn" block just so he can download torrents.
    And then we would mark those who asked for it as deviant.
    Why do people need to appear in the "porn needs" list only to access many useful sites in completely different ways?

    1. VPN won't help here, it's a provider's block. Is it like trying to surf with a VPN or TOR when you don't have internet, something will change? No..

      1. Do you have any idea how VPN or TOR work? I'm pretty sure not according to your response ...

  3. What irritates me is that even though the bill states that it will be free, it will cost the supplier's price for nothing.
    There is no way in the world that ISPs will absorb the costs.

  4. It is interesting for me to hear the opinion of those people who support this dictatorial law. Why is this a good thing? To keep the kids? Bullshit. An 15 boy who knows how to reach porn sites (and most of them know) also knew how to bypass this censor with some VPN service (takes no more than 2 clicks and a half second of effort).

    Considering the negative things that it brings with it like infringement on freedom of expression and freedom of information on the Internet and considering that such information can fall into business and interest ideas ... No thanks !!! Really disagree with such a law.
    Anyone who interferes with porn wants to block them. very simple. Otherwise tomorrow we will also censor HWZONE because this site is active on Saturday and most of it talks about Gentile Guild programs.

    1. This is the problem in life in a religious state whose ascendancy consists of elderly and ignorant

  5. Of course, the vendors will use the least expensive and stupid solutions. In Hot Mobile, for example, I canceled the filtering they offer (Fortiguard, by the way) after Geekbuing blocked me from having Banned Word on the page. come on…

  6. Quote of jackhammer

    An 15 boy who knows how to reach porn sites (and most of them know) also knew how to bypass this censor with some VPN service (takes no more than 2 clicks and a half second of effort).

    Not even a VPN should. There are enough cloud-based mobile browser apps that kids just need to download without any settings

  7. Today, almost every website that contains advertising and downloads of computer games ……… also contains a banner and links to Porn!
    I'm all for the kids!
    But more closely connects to the last line (which has certainly been cynically stated) "Unfortunately we have not found in the amendment to the bill any technical explanation as to its actual ways of implementation."
    You know and you know, filtering sites is like filtering water!

  8. Quote of jackhammer

    Really disagree with such a law. Anyone who is disturbed by Porano wants to block it. very simple

    And those who really want him to ask to remove the block ... very simple!

    You can think what blocks.

    If the law were to say that no user's right to vote is given, then I'm really against ... block it, to me personally it doesn't really bother.

    As noted in the article, one phone can ask that the situation remain as it is currently.

    1. "Can you think of what blocks" ?? So why block in the first place ?? Who defines what content is offensive and which is not? If I put a picture of a girl almost completely naked but with a little cloth that only covers the tipples does that mean it's porn? And what if the fabric was a little bigger to hide the nipple and a bit around it? Oh is it still offensive? Okay, so little bikini? Now is that a round?
      What about real-life television shows that the only real thing there is the money they get for talking nonsense? Isn't that offensive content? In my opinion this is very offensive content !! An 12 girl should not see and imitate people without a brain that she sees on TV that the only reason they are there is to be provocative and agitated because that is what brings ratings ...

      Do you want to protect our children? Excellent!! I am in favor. Start from the TV, start from the commercials, start from the Ayalon outdoor signs that show girls in bikini and can easily cause accidents.
      Censoring the Internet in such a blatant way is not the solution. It's not smart to kill a mosquito with a missile and on the way to download some people ... need a specific solution. Think of something else, that's what they get paid for.

  9. Would not it be better to bring them by hand instead of bothering females? In general, an old woman once called the police and complained that a naked man was walking around in his apartment and the window was open. When the police came to check, Zakena had a telescope.

  10. Except for the appearance of people on lists that may be used for stigmatization and defamation, there is another problem that may arise.

    When there is a blocked list of inappropriate content, anyone who has an interest will ask to add topics for blocking.

    Tomorrow the copyright companies will come and ask to block access to sites where there are also pirate content.

    A big question is how to implement these barriers.

    Will there be one block that includes several categories? Or there are several types of blocks, one for each category.

    Violence, pornography, etc…

    And who will protect us from those blocks?

    Who will protect bloggers?

    About sites or bloggers that incorporate controversial texts or images?

    I would like to remind you of the case that was in the US where they established a "ethics committee" for rating "inappropriate content".

    And the film made in his mouth.

  11. They will suffocate !!
    What about STEAM that half of the content out there is violent / sexual? And I have shares there ?!

  12. A slippery matron whose end is unknown.
    Later they will set up the police of thoughts so that anyone who goes to the site is not allowed to wash their eyes will be expected to raid 3 on the night of the Moral Police, because it is known that every sexual contact is purely "pro and many" and everything else is a serious crime and should be brought The perpetrators are being prosecuted and purged with stones until their soul comes out of their bodies as written in the Holy Torah.

  13. Notice who the law initiator is - Dosi who did no homework !!
    I did not see such a grace.
    Instead of bringing into the public mind the fact that there is already a law that requires the vendors to filter every customer (I don't care how good or not they are, because what they are now offering will probably be at the same level) they want to castrate us because it's too blatant, come on ... That they will repeatedly advertise the fact that everyone has the right to receive free filtering. The fact that most customers do not know that such a possibility is not a reason to produce such a stupid law !!

  14. It was only passed by the committee, which is far from being a law.

    By the way, humans tend not to make changes and leave things as they are.

    In countries where organ donation is a default, most citizens are defined as donors and only a minority of them are working to change it.

    Each filtering filter also contains content that was not the goal of the filter.

    Any search of a violent word from a computer game, movie or series, or even a song of their attitude.

    This is censorship of the Internet, and even if it is legally passed, there is a good chance that it will be abolished by the High Court, despite the option of cancellation.

  15. This violates our fundamental rights and therefore this law should not exist at all.
    And even when there is censorship on our internet, think how much burden there will be on the companies from all the calls they receive to take this block. Absolute stupidity, like religious coercion. More reasons why I want to move to a country after I finish an army.

  16. A stupid and retarded law. Those who support such a law were probably in Stalin's former life or something and that left his soul scarred.

    I responded to the Knesset member's Facebook page:

  • Amazing, in the original sense of the word.

    A clear example of what a depressing religion combined with puritanism, righteousness, and political influence can do.

    By the way 1

    In many cases it turns out that people of this type are exposed quite a few skeletons in the closet.

    By the way 2

    If I remember correctly, it ended up sticking to the stickers

    Parent Advisory

    On the covers, stickers that of course increased sales so much so that the music industry made sure there was a reason to catch up with them.

  • By the end of it, the PARENTAL ADVISORY sticker ended because the music industry wanted to pass the law "distributing artisans" to illegal copies that became common following tape recordings.

    But what the bored motherhood organization wanted to do was a rating system in the style of film ratings.

    Which had a far greater impact on the music creators, who were forced to flatter the committee and omit / exchange words so that they could sell their albums at WallMart.

    The same thing happened with the film industry at the time.

    There were quite a few wars at that time about inappropriate content on television.

    There was a list of words that should not be said on air.

    Even on the radio.

    If you saw the movie on HOWARD STERN you might remember this scene:

  • Quote of ig591

    The problem is not specific, the problem is the trend.

    The unknown did not want to censor porn. Porn is the spin, she wanted to censor offensive content

    And it will determine from them the same content, that is, content that harms it. And if you do not straighten out, you will be blacklisted.

    The culture minister wants to censor art. Censorship is not a dirty word. She will determine which books

    Worthy of reading for you, which Movies Or TV series do not match the values ​​you think you should live on.

    The prime minister wants to censor the media channels. It will determine which content will be reviewed and how. And especially what is permitted and what is forbidden in his relations with him and his family.

    If this is not worrisome, then it is more worrying because apathy is the fertilizer to dark regimes.

    Do not want to make it a discussion about politics but it is not the same.

    The censor that Miri Regev talks about comes from a place where public money is used to create art (mainly films) that leads to incitement and hatred against the state. And that does not make sense.

    But the content on the internet is not funded by public money so it should not be censored




  • But that's exactly the point

    Quote of jackhammer

    Miri Regev talks about it from a place where public funds are used to create art (mainly films) that leads to incitement and hatred against the state

    Censorship for culture is not a political matter, it is a democratic matter.

    Miri Regev wants to determine what is dangerous and what is not - Her opinion She would decide, aside from the fact that she had never seen a movie by Tarantino, based on what? What criteria? Is this my reaction is incitement?

    Criticism of a cabinet minister or, heaven forbid, the prime minister is a blow to the stability of the government and hence the security of the state !? What limits?

    There are countless examples of institutional intervention (politicians, "security people", etc.) in a culture called state security - McCarthyism in the US is a clear example of how slippery this slope is.

    The state budget is not the small treasury of government ministers to divide according to their interests and their dubious opinions.

    And democracy is not the rule of the majority but the rights of the minority

  • Democracy must also defend itself.

    We are surrounded by enemies from outside and inside.

    The state does not have to pay for Arab theater pornographic performances of blaming Jews and justifying murderers,

    Or a fifth brother-in-law who is interested in ending the State of Israel as a Jewish state and in promoting the fulfillment of the Arab-Muslim hatred of dreams (under the guise of enlightened and naive).

    The state must also set boundaries between art and incitement.

    Especially when there is "culture" around us and within us! That justifies and encourages the Holocaust to the Jewish people.

    Enough to be bored!

  • There must be a border, but it must be divided by all sides, the left and the right.

    We were dragged into a political debate and it's a pity that this is not the issue, the subject is censorship.

    The Mu'alem wants to determine what content is offensive to you and to me

    And to create de-legitimization for those who do not applaud, and who serve to create

    A press to support their fragile ego.

    It scares me more than the stupid B'Tselem CEO who needs psychiatric treatment.

  • Regev does not want to financially dry up and delegitimize Israel.

    It just does not want to legitimize and finance things, that under any government, it is not supposed, according to all reason and logic, to receive legitimacy and public funding from the government.

    The left (which violates any law and morality it supposedly seeks to defend) builds its political line on the demagoguery in which the right is presented as fascist, searching and inventing reasons to cry out the cry of the stolen Cossack.

    The arguments of the left over the loss of freedom of expression are distorted distortion, and even a crude lie behind which many wrongs are hidden.

    The Left has always been and still is double-faced, with double standards, and contemptuous behavior in which the ends justify the means.

    And behind the left is always the extreme left and the Arab enemy, coordinating positions to advance harmful and vicious political agendas.

    And this is scary according to 1000 Regev converters.

  • Oh okay,

    Again this unfortunate argument. All leftists are Israelis, anti-Semites, Muslim lovers and Jewish haters. All the women on the left have sex with Arabs and all men are gay who have sex with them.

    Leftists are worse than Arabs, they must be eliminated immediately before killing all Arabs - they are a fifth brother, traitor, even worse than the Arabs. and so'

    Well, you're right, all leftists will unite one day with all Muslims: the Saudis, Cathars, Egyptians, Sudanese and ISIS, maybe we will bring strength from Malaysia, Serbia and black Islamists from the US.

    We will conquer the State of Israel and establish a Communist / Fascist state here (circling the correct answer) We will return all the Mizrahi countries, except those who know how to cook Cuba and Frum, on the radio will only play Wagner operas and a little Paul Simon and Ehud Banai.

    I can continue or fill in the missing yourself.

    Bibi is the messiah king and Sarah is a martyr.

    Right in power two decades, you are the majority - maybe stop the paranoia? You won.

    And decide, are we a strong country with the best army in the world and a strong rear or a weak and poor nation surrounded by enemies?

  • Just say the left and the Arabs will not receive funding from the state for shows and "culture" events featuring murderers as human heroes, and the IDF as bloodthirsty vampires, and immediately they attack "fascists !!".

    Fulfilled by Arabs whose reasoning is distorted by a lifetime of terror and even fear of thinking otherwise.

    But the Jewish Left simply lost its mind.

    Yes IG591 The State of Israel is strong and has a strong army.

    So should terror supporters be allowed to produce plays with a narrative that supports terrorism and justifies funding and state sponsorship?

    Where is the logic here exactly?

    Only demagoguery is left.

    Rationale no longer exists.

    The fascist right!

    Miri Regev Fascist!

    Lieberman is a fascist and a war monger!

    Only capitulation to terrorism will prevent terror!

    Do not buy it anymore.

    That is why the left is shrinking and disappearing to the extent that the "big" left party has decided to try to work for the public and call itself the "Zionist" camp.

    All this when there are quite a few declared "post-scores" and even enemies of a country that support boycotts against it.

  • Get you into the same crazy right-wing category that burns or stabs Arab kids? No terrorists! Just kids. Have you never heard extreme right-wing statements calling for bulldozers on the Supreme Court? To call you burning mosques and churches? For those who want the destruction of the State of Israel as it is today and establish under it a Jewish kingdom (monarchy) whose laws will be state law, after blowing up the Al Aqsa Mosque and killing all Arabs, leftists and so on.

    Inclusion is cheap and dangerous demagoguery, and it's a pity you're using it.

    If you were reading and not raving you would see that I wrote that boundaries should be set, but boundaries should be clear and agreed, there should be criteria and not a casual politician's decision. As a jazz enthusiast, you probably know that in the 1920s it was called "Devil's Music", confiscated by radio stations, showrooms and mainstream newspapers.

    And that there is no partiality with the call for a boycott of the State of Israel, etc.

    I do not know if Miri Regev is fascist or not, I know she is a ruthless ignorant. And worse, he boasts of it and is an example of the lips that follow.

    Her incitement,

    Mizrahim against Ashkenazim (for example) is more dangerous than an idiot who writes to Roger Waters.

  • I am a legal porn consumer and I welcome the initiative Well done finally the government is doing something important it is time well done!
