Ha’aretz: Israeli government turns to YouTube


Ha’aretz reports that the Prime Minister’s Office in Israel recently posted three videos to YouTube showing images from the terror attack earlier this month at Jerusalem’s Mercaz HaRav yeshiva:

The three videos were posted under the titles “Stop the Terror, Stop the Bloodshed,” “Act NOW: Stop The Bloodshed – Stop the Terror,” and “Emergency call, March 7, Jerusalem.”

While the person named as poster, AtiyaRachel, was not identified as having any connection to the government, TheMarker has learned that the Prime Minister’s Office was actually behind the uploads to the popular video site.

This is the first time that a government body has used the site in response to a terror attack.

Here are the videos (warning: graphic images)…
