What, Google isn't kosher?

Amusing news this time. Apparently, Google's search engine isn't kosher enough for orthodox rabbis and Jews. So, through their encouragement comes a new "kosher-friendly" search engine titled (wait for it)...

The site, at, omits religiously objectionable material, such as most photographs of women which Orthodox rabbis view as immodest, Altman said.

Its links to Israeli news and shopping sites also filter out items most ultra-Orthodox Israelis are forbidden by rabbis to have in their homes, such a television sets.
Whatever you see fit, I assume...
