When you get back to your desk at the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, please initiate an investigation into upgrading the customer-facing Web and other IT infrastructure at the MFA.

I’ve tried accessing this page several times today, and each time encountered the same error message. Israel simply cannot afford to have its Foreign Affairs website down or inaccessible, certainly not for this length of time. If I was just another member of the global public, I would by now be getting my information from the Al-Jazeera, BBC or Hamas websites. I bet they’re all serving pages right now!

Let’s see Israel’s vaunted qualitative and technological edge put to work here.
