Google Israel Supports Return of Abducted Soldiers

Hanan Cohen in the forum reports of a special Google Israel homepage today:

One year passed since the Hizbullah kidnapped two Israeli [soldiers] on the Lebanon border.

Today, some Israeli sites will display a black homepage to commemorate the event and support the struggle to bring them back.

Google Israel had chosen to show a small blue and white ribbon on its homepage linking to a search for the Hebrew Bible phrase “thy children shall come again to their own border”

Below the blue ribbon, the words “ושבו בנים לגבול” are printed. Eytan Buchman adds:

There has been a recent increase in local Google activity out here in Israel. I wonder if Google Headquarters has to agree to every change on the local Google homepages. Seems like the whole kidnapped soldiers thing may be a little politically charged...
