JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency, under pressure to prevent attacks by Palestinian or Jewish militants ahead of a planned summer pullback from Gaza, launched a recruiting Web site on Tuesday.

With www.shabak.gov.il, the hitherto shadowy Shin Bet follows its overseas equivalent Mossad, and foreign counterparts such as the CIA and Britain's MI5, in making up for potential applicants lost to the private sector by seeking spies on-line.

"Love of humanity, love of nation, love of homeland -- these are the basic requirements for joining the agency family," reads the Web site's foreword by Shin Bet director Avi Dichter.

Yet I somehow doubt we're going to see a Mossad in-house blog any time soon.
