The State of Israel now has a blog: Isrealli
The Israeli Consul for media and public affairs in New York calls this “the official blog of the State of Israel”, and “the first state Blog out there.” They also want feedback.
Here are my initial thoughts:
1. It’s better late than never, but why did it take so long?
2. Do we really need another blog that plays on the words “Israel” and “real”? It is so unoriginal and cliched. Ok, I’ll shut up now…
3. The blog looks nice.
4. They need to extend the blogroll to include a great many more pro-Israel blogs.
5. The blogroll should be located on the main page.
6. Good to see the government is rebranding Israel as promised, evidenced by the Hot in Israel banner in the right-hand sidebar.
