What is Israelenews?

I just stumbled on a site called israelenews.com, which bills itself as “Israel’s daily news e-mag.”

The site contains a number of blog posts, as well as articles from a number of well-known and not-so-well-known people. And while these include some worthy authors (including Israellycool contributor Elder of Ziyon and fellow pro-Israel blogger Sultan Knish) , it currently has on the front page articles by the likes of anti-Israel blogger/pest Richard Silverstein, and the blatantly anti-Semitic Israel Shamir.

Just as disturbing is the presence on the front page of an article about an Israeli porn site. The words “WARNING!!! ADULT CONTENT” appear in the excerpt, but seemingly only for effect, given the presence of an uncensored, pornographic picture right next to them. Yeah, thanks for the warning. Needless to say, I did not click through for the full article.

What I’m confused about is the purpose of this site. Is it a site to promote a variety of views on Israel and intellectual discussion? Or is it a glorified porn site? Furthermore, do the authors know their articles are being published on this site? And if so, are they aware of the anti-Israel/Jewish views and other filth being disseminated there?

Update: Here is the full list of authors. Looking at some of these names, I am sure they would not approve of having their work published there.
