IslamOnline - What's Happening Online

This article highlights some of the effects the IOL takeover has had on the website itself:
  • Many old reports have been re-published, while newer reports have disappeared. 
  • Entire sections and links have been removed from the Arabic-language portal including the "News and Analysis" section and the "Islamyioun" website link. A special page on Al-Quds (Jerusalem) has also disappeared. 
  • No articles have been published in English since the crisis erupted last week. 
  • In addition, all the English-language content Cairo editors published during the first two weeks of March has disappeared.
  • "Gaza Holocaust," a special page dedicated to revealing the Israeli army’s crimes in the Gaza war, has also vanished. 
  • Pageviews are estimated at 60 percent down, from 200,000 pageviews per day to just 86,000.
