Israeli Police Instructs ISPs to Block Gambling Web Sties

The Israeli business news site, TheMarker,  reports that Israeli police has instructed all local ISPs to block access to a list of gambling web sites, operating aboard and targeting Israeli consumers (gambling is illegal in Israel, except of the government lottery).

According to the report - (in Hebrew - here) the police "hand delivered" to all ISPs a "list of IP addresses" they need to block. ISPs told TheMarker that "blocking by specific IP address will not help as the address will be replaced"
