Dear sir :

Sorry for bothering you. I am a journalist from the Beijing news (in Chinese新京报), we want to plan a special edition in our newspaper to report the current development of internet and blog in the world. I find the email in Israel government website, so write it to you. Thank you for your kindness to read it.

Israel is a developed country, and the civilians enjoy wonderful education. So I want to get some information about the current development of internet and blog in Israel, which is useful to my article. Would you like to give me some answer below the questions?


Now the general development of internet and blog in Israel, how many internet user in your country, and among the user, how many blgger are in Israel?

In Israel, is there a special department or office to charge the development of internet and blog? such as set the developing plan, manage the information in the net. If a person want to set a blog, does he register his true name?

If some anti-govement words appear in the blog, how will the government do? Cancel the blog or warn it?

What is the General people’s view to the development of internet and blog? If they have good advice to blog development, how do they let the government know, and which office collects the advice?

my email is:

would you like to send answers back to my email?

Thank you very much!
