Lebanon Gets Smart~Shuts Israeli ISP Down

Lebanon boycotts Israel and shuts down Internet service provider. Good for them! Were I a Lebanese, I'd stay clear away from any ISP owned by Israel. Otherwise they may as well send all their data directly to Tel Aviv.
Hizbullah's official website claimed that the Lebanese Prosecutor-General's Office closed an Internet company in the Lebanese town of Barouk that supposedly had ties to Israel, according to a report on Saturday by the Lebanese daily As Safir.

According to Hizbullah, the As Safir report stated that Lebanese Army Intelligence raided the company's offices and established that it had ties with Israel after interrogating the employees and examining equipment.

Hizbullah added that the company provided Internet services to many Lebanese government institutions and had been active for years. source
