when a war criminal state expresses worries about its image

"The reason the Communications Ministry is blocking the entry of iPad tablet computers into Israel is that the device's wireless communications could interfere with frequencies used by the military, said MK Robert Ilatov (Yisrael Beiteinu) yesterday. He wrote a letter to Communications Minister Moshe Kahlon, calling on him to allow the importation of Apple's new computers, which the ministry banned last week. Ilatov said the ban had harmed Israel's image around the world, and kept Israelis from using cutting-edge technology." (thanks Farah)
