Why Did Google Remove Results from Israeli Search Engine?

Google’s removal of some search results from its Israeli search engine is shrouded in a bit of mystery. “Google has removed from its Israeli portal google.co.il the results of a search that refer to a famous businessman who in the past served as a double agent for the KGB and the Shin Bet security service, and whose name was under a gag order imposed by the military censorship – according to a report on Sunday on the Israel media website the Seventh Eye. But Google is hinting that the removal is due to libel suits rather than the military censor. A source at Google, who requested anonymity, said that the company had not received any requests related to the businessman.”
