Today's Golden Oldie is from February 1984
Twenty Five years ago this month!The cartoon marked the Israeli government's setting up a telephone company to handle what previously had been handled by the government. In the cartoon, the innovation was observed by two angels watching the Holy Land from a cloud. The new company, however, was totally owned by the government. It was called Bezeq (from the Hebrew word for lightning). Twenty-one years later, in 2005, Bezeq was "privatized" when 30% of its shares were sold to a private group for $972 Million.
