Russia, Israel: Gaza War Online

IZO reports that “a blog in support of the current Israeli military action in Gaza on the super-popular social site (27 million members) was hacked and destroyed after it entered into polemics with an anti-Israel site on Facebook”; and comments on the controversial post by Anton Nossik/LJ user dolboeb, who “published a gruesome photo of a dead Palestinian fighter on his blog under the caption ‘Well done'”: “You may or may not share Nossik's point of view, but what is remarkable, from a Western perspective, is that such a well-known figure should express himself so uninhibitedly in a public forum.”
