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.

    You notice that the rocket attacks on Israel increased as the chances of Assad winning in Syria decreased. Almost like someone wanted to get Syria off the front page.

    I was under the impression it had something to do with the possible Internet blockade

    But when the government of Israel publicly threatened to sever all Internet and other telecommunications into and out of Gaza they crossed a line in the sand. []

    If I read the source they try to spin as this has something to do with the military actions which isn't really the case. I kinda hate this kind of propaganda to be honest.

    ...taking the Palestinian side against Israel happens to be cool among leftists, anarchists, and other spoiled children with too much time and money and not enough wisdom.

    And taking Israel's side is a wiser choice because ....?

    Isn't Israel the ones who are stealing land and building "settlements" on that land? And where there is a chance for peace, isn't it the "Settlers" who start something because they don't want to give up the land they stole? Actually, it was the IDF who steals it under the guise of "security".

    See, this is the way I see it: you have two groups of people who want the same piece of land. One group did a marvelous job of playing off World powers and sucked them into what basically amounts to a pathetic, self righteous, piss-ant little local conflict.

    We in the West should let these pathetic little people kill one another off and we should keep our noses out of it.

    Lastly, anyone who thinks Israel is some sort of innocent victim here is a moron. If Israel really wanted peace, all they have to do is pull those squat...Settlers out, move the borders back to where they were in 1967, and give the Palestinians their own state.

    And all the bullshit being said about Israel's destruction is just that bullshit. That's just rhetoric from some folks who have no skin in this conflict - like Iran - who want to just stir shit up and and in the process give Israel more power in the propaganda battle.

    Yes. You've been their and spoken to people - on both sides.

    You HAVE to ask yourself this: "From what source do I get my information, and how many levels of mediation are between me and the original source".

    You will find that your experience and understanding are built upon layers of unproven trust.

    Maybe illegal - but a lot of crazy shit becomes legal in a warzone.

    Odd though, that Hamas suddenly has a lot of longer-ranged missiles, after those flotillas were allowed through.

    If I were an Israeli naval officer, those flotillas would have been sunk, and no survivors picked up. Israelis are pretty soft hearted sometiems, like when world opinion is against them.

    I say, "Screw world opinion, we've got a war going on here!"

    The British and the Americans did not forcibly set up a new Israel, the Israelis did that all by themselves. What really cemented their country was beating 5 Arab armies. After that, there was no stopping them. And Truman had to be dragged into supporting an Israel in the U.N. Also, Russia continued their anti-Jewish policies and many Jews left Russia for Israel. And they were well-educated Jews, that made for a much stronger Israel.

    After the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was made a Gruppen-Fuhrer in Hilter's Reich, the Arabs and Palestinians could kiss any support for their side goodbye.

    There are 350 million Arabs and Muslims in the MENA region, Israel with their ~6.5 million Jewish population is the clear aggressor, having killed thousands while also imprisoning over a million people in the world's largest prison. Inevitability dictates that the situation will not last much longer. Even apartheid South Africa lasted less than fifty years. The Arab Spring continues...
