The current bulletin covers the period between 15-18 November 2017 where the Israeli virtual world occupied a number of topics, of importantly of which were related to repercussions of the Metoo # campaign. The harassment stories following the Metoo # campaign have sparked storms within the Israeli virtual world in recent days after some vocal testimonies by prominent media agencies were revealed against media officials, police and Israeli economy personnel, who have been shown to use their positions to harass and sexually exploit women.

The current bulletin covers the period between 5.11.1-8.11.17, where the virtual world has been preoccupied, throughout the past week, by a number of topics that went beyond the developments in the Arab world. Those have precluded a gunman opening fire within a mass shooting at a church in Texas, resulting in several casualties and injuries. The attacker was found dead after running his car off the road.

The current publication covers the period between 1.11.17 - 4.11.17, as developments in the Arab world dominated the attention of the Israeli virtual world, recently preoccupied with commemorating the 22nd anniversary of the assassination of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The Israeli virtual world demonstrated special attention towards topical developments concerning the Syrian and Lebanese arena, especially given the latters’ direct connection to Israeli interests.
