Coming to Israel: Kosher Internet

I wonder if this something like this would ever fly in Lakewood:The telecommunications company Bezeq, will be luanching special "kosher" internet on seperate servers for the ultra-Orthodox public. This will allow them to restrict those sites that started the ban in the first place. As the article explains:According to the agreement, ultra-Orthodox households will receive a separate ADSL line.The rabbinical committee will supervise the online content and allow access to only a few sites, apparently including e-mail service and haredi news sites. At a later stage Bezeq itself may post online ultra-Orthodox content, with the rabbinical committee’s authorization.
