The list of the websites is considered confidential, and included, by media reports two websites related to gambling. The issue in matter began around two months ago, when the Israeli police, alongside the tax authorities arrested 28 suspects who were suspected in collaborating with two websites: Stan James and Victor Chandler. Following a brief period of time, the police approached the Israeli ISPs in request to block access to those sites claiming it has the authority to do so by clause 229 to the Israeli Penal Code. I wrote a brief post with links to the story and review of the Israeli law.
