Anonymous Attacks Israeli Websites In Response To IDF Operation In Gaza 560

An anonymous reader writes "On Thursday, Anonymous reported that it took down close to 40 Israeli government and security establishment websites, although the single website that they presented as having been attacked belonged to a security and cleaning services company. The report came after Likud MK Danny Danon announced earlier in the week that his website had been taken down by a group calling itself TeaM KuWaiT HaCkErS. Danon's website had been hosting an online petition calling for the Israeli government to cut off the supply of electricity going from Israel to Gaza. " A report at Russia Today puts the number at "hundreds" of sites, instead.

    Yes, Israel is under constant threat of annihilation. It is the most experienced & advanced force in the ME so they better respond to every existential threat with a thousandfold in violence or else they'll be dead. 21 people killed in Israel in 11 years.

    Let me repeat that: 21 killed by hamas, in 11 years.

    Your chances of dying browsing /. while sitting in your boxers eating fried chicken is infinitely greater. Don't let any religious or political argument mislead you into thinking that oppression is not the reason for the current situtation.

    If it's not illegal to do so, in their native countries, some might wish to join the good guys.

    really? or are you in parrot-what-the-talking-head says mode?

    no leftists are in favor of the combined arab aggression that wishes israel off the map (more accurately, all jews dead).

    left leaning people support democracy and its core principles. the israelis are the ONLY ones in that entire region that have any similarity to our western ways of thought and our world views.

    get fucking real and stop the paroting of bullshit talking points.

    you may not agree with all that israel does, but you cannot seriously take the arab view that 'death to isreal' is at all a valid thing to have as a goal.

    anyone who takes that point, even a little, is to be dismissed.

    When did 'Palestine' exist as an independent state? They are Jordanians.

    Didn't Israel assassinate Palestinian leader just before a ceasefire was about to be brokered... []

    The Pals gained a lot of worldwide sympathy with those moronic flotillas. And, here they squander much of that sympathy by attacking Israel in some hopeless gamble.

    No they don't. The entire islamic world has larger levels of anti-Semitism than Germany had in the 1930s (not that other kinds of racism are far behind), and the issue is simple : the more attention hamas captures, the more this anti-Semitism will play in politics in other muslim countries.

    The more attention hamas grabs, using any and all means, including their favorite tactic of getting their neighbours' children killed, the more successful they're likely to become.

    Their stated purpose is to bring back traditional islamic values, and they explicitly mention including eternal war (one translation "jihad") with, well, with everyone else. Another stated purpose of Hamas is to kill every Jew in the world.

    Nobody hated Jews in Palestine, until a bunch of Polish and Russian pricks, calling themselves "Hebrew" camped their little racist state on the coast, in the middle of the last century. []

    Just three examples which took me like 5 seconds to find: []

    As the riots began, Jewish immigration to Palestine was temporarily halted by the British. Also, feeling that the British were unwilling to defend them from continuous Arab violence, Palestinian Jews decided to set up an underground self-defense militia, the Haganah ("defense"). []

    In a speech in June 1921 on the occasion of the Royal birthday, Samuel stressing Britain's commitment to the second part of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, declared that Jewish immigration would be allowed only to the extent that it did not burden the economy. In line with this interpretation, Jewish immigration was suspended. Those who heard the speech had the impression that he was trying to appease the Arabs at the Jews' expense, and some Jewish leaders boycotted him for a time []

    According to Asher Meshorer (Zemira Mani's son and Noit Geva's father), his aunt (Zemira Mani's sister - who was not present in Hebron during the massacre) had told him that the Arabs from the villages essentially wanted to kill only the new Ashkenazim. According to her, there was an alienated Jewish community that wore streimels, unlike the Sephardi community, which was deeply rooted, speaking Arabic and dressing like Arab residents.

    When the riots started, representatives of the Arabs came to the chief Hebron Rabbi, Rabbi Slonim Dwek, with a proposal - if he allowed them to kill 70 students from the yeshiva in Hebron, they would not kill the other Ashkenazim or the Sephardim. Rabbi Slonim Dwek told them, "We Jews are all one people." He was the first person to be killed in the riots, as he held his eldest son, 4 years old in his hands, who was also killed

    So yeah. Nice try but fuck you.

    Israel is aiming at weapon caches and missle emplacements. How is that not defense?

  • by Anonymous Coward on Saturday November 17, 2012 @02:52PM (#42013489)
    Who the fuck caches their weapons in populated areas? A. If an ammo dump blows because of improper maintenance, kids die. B. If you start shit and the other side retaliates, kids die. The location of these weapons was done intentionally and for effect. Hamas knows this; they just don't care if their own kids die. In fact, one could argue that they WANT their kids to die because it helps their PR and recruiting campaigns.

    Wow, where do you live? In New Zealand we don't routinely arm our police, although they do carry firearms secured in the boot of their vehicles. If a youth threatens a cop with a weapon they'll be tasered if that is on hand ir shot if a taser is not available. Youths on the drug P have been carrying golf clubs smashing things up and after warnings from cops they have been shot and killed. If you live in a country even more passive than New Zealand I'd be interested to know.

    However, you are missing the real point of this thread. Israel is taking great pains to avoiding killing children,. They have aborted numerous airstrikes (at the cost of hundreds of thousands of shekels) at least according to the IDF YouTube page; they also spend millions inventing the Delilah missile that is designed with an abort option to prevent civilian casualties; they have also sent out 12,000 texts and dropped leaflets to tell civilians to move away from rocket storage facilities.

    Hamas, on the other hand cynically launches rockets from house yards and schools - hoping to make 'inoluntary matyrs' of the inhabitants when the Israelis try get the launchers.

    So, given that Israel tries to preserve life (of both Israeli and Arab civilians) and Hamas tries to destroy it (of both Israeli and Arab civilians) it should be pretty clear to any unbiased observer who is decent and who is not. Unfortunately, many people are not unbiased and report lies as facts. eg. they slurp up all of Hamas' propaganda due to their misplace hatred of Israel. Example of Hamas lying (as it often does):

    Hamas' Claims: True or False? [] []

    Hamas lies routinely, believing falsehoods are permitted by the Islamic principle of Taqiyyah ('religious dissimulation => blatant lying): []

    Absolutely correct. People on Slashdot invent conspiracies about the Illuminati and such but the real worldwide conspiracy at the moment is the stealth movement to bring back what is known as the 'Caliphate'. Britain already has parallel Sharia Law courts. Unles the lameness of poltical correctness is stopped we will not be able to criticise those seeking the establishment of the global Caliphate, and the 'war' of ideas between the Inheritors of the Enlightenment and the Islamofascists will have been lost before most people realise it has started.

    Why is unrestrained political correctness an issue? because under the guise of 'niceness', 'tolerance' and 'comunity cohesion' we are appeasing violent Islamic jihadis who care nothing for Western values. Political correctness is used by the Islamic voting bloc in the UN (see []) to prevent any criticism of Islam.

    Don't appease, opppose!

    You are forgetting the 7000 rockets so far this year. The Israelis got an opportunity to take this guy out and they did.

    The other thing you, and many other Slashdotters, also don't understand that all the negotiations were for a 'ceasefire', not a permanent peace treaty. You see, Hamas seeks a ceasefire ('hudna' in Arabic) whenever they are weak. Islam permits such ceasefires to be made with hated enemies to build up strength until the next attack. If Hamas was in a position of strength they do not have to offer hudna to the Israelis.

    If Hamas agreed to a peace treaty then Israel would grant it immediately. The thing is, Hamas do not want peace, only ceasefires to build strength. Hamas don't think permanent peace is an option, they believe they have "Allah on their side" and will eventually bring the Caliphate to the entire World (starting with Israel). Now i'm not saying this is logical, but that is how Hamas (and other violent Islamofascist theocracies) thinks.

Logic is a pretty flower that smells bad.
