Huffington Post Plans to Open Israel Website

I guess any BDS reader who goes on the Huffington Post has to cut ties now. This is pretty awesome. 
The Huffington Post is planning to launch an Israeli website, founding editor Roy Sekoff told Israel’s Channel 2 on Wednesday.
Sekoff said that the move is part of HuffPo’s road map for opening foreign sites, sometimes creating them in local language. “With so much innovation in Israel, we had opportunities to work with many Israelis,” Sekoff added.
Sekoff said that AOL, which paid $352 million for the Huffington Post in 2011, also owns other internet and video firms in Tel Aviv, which has given them a foothold in Israel. In Israel, AOL has acquired, 5min Media, Relegence, Yedda, Quigo and ICQ-developer Mirabilis.
As for when the Israeli site will open, Sekoff said, “It will happen soon.”
In the interview, Sekoff said the Huff Po plans to be in 10 international markets and that it’s push into video will open up the democratized content model further.
He said reader comments now total 265 million on its site.

  1. I was hoping you would comment on this!

    I couldn't agree more……I would love nothing more than for all of those
    Jew hating bigots to practice what they preach, put their money where their
    mouth is, and get the hell out of dodge!

    Starting with the likes of "Medeteranian Mom" and "EVSW" and continuing down the line to "Annoula", "Rianna", etc., etc. It's a long list BDS BS'ers.


Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
