One in three Israelis has faced cyberbullying either on Facebook or other social networking sites, revealed a survey conducted by the Israel Internet Association ahead of Safer Internet Day on Feb. 11.

The figures show that 81 percent of those questioned feel the Internet is unsafe for children and teens, and 61 percent of the survey’s participants—comprising parents of children under age 18—said they are exposed to online dangers themselves.

The parents said the primary risk posed by surfing the Web was pornographic material, followed by sexual harassment on social networking sites, ostracizing, verbal abuse, and being exposed to violence. Sixty-five percent said they supervise and are involved to a great extent in the way their children use the Internet.

  1. When Israel decides to really become a nation ruled by civil law rather than "religious" law(rebunnim), cyberbullying could decrease. Unfortunately, too many rebunnim and would be rebunnim act as if they wrote the Torah and in fact were messengers for GOD.
