Tunisia harvesting passwords

January 08, 2011 10:29

According to Reporters Without Borders, authorities claim to target only pornographic or terrorist websites. “However, censorship applies above all to political opposition, independent news, and human rights websites.”
“When an Internet user attempts to access a prohibited website, the following automatic error message appears: “Error 404: page not found,” without displaying the familiar “Error 403” more typical of a blocked site...This strategy equates to a disguised form of censorship.”

Let's guess how many of the antisemites and anti-Zionists who shouted at the Israeli inquiry of funding of pseudo-human rights organisations will shout the same and even worth for this governement censorship of political opponents.
Certainly a much greater evil than checking that some organisations are not paid by enemies of a country in war.
Tunisia is at war with no one, just waging a war on democracy.

My guess is: none! Not a single aarondover (or Dobrzynski), not a single Milligramsam, not a single Walinuts will ever say one word about this attack of political rights.
One standard is applied for Israel, another for Tunisia.

And these double standards are a sure sign of antisemitism.
