By Tamar Rotem of Haaretz.com:

“Two weeks ago, a group of students from one of Jerusalem’s most prestigious junior high schools was called out of class, before their classmates’ stunned eyes.

One by one, the students gathered somberly in their school library. Something in the severe face of their vice-principal hinted that this was leading to a disciplinary measure. A glance around the room was enough to see that these students were far from bring the rowdiest in the class.

Some of them bit their fingernails in anticipation, as potential reasons for their punishment raced through their heads. But not one expected to be accused of forming a hate group against a fellow student on the Facebook social networking site.” more on haaretz.com
