‘ANONYMOUS’ CYBER WAR AGAINST ISRAEL

 It will be interesting to see who Israel will blame for this…. any guesses?

Over the past month, pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli hackers have been battling in cyberspace. Starting on January 3, the hackers group, “Group-XP”, claimed it had obtained personal information of about 400,000 Israelis, but checks carried out by the credit card issuers and the Bank of Israel determined that the details of between 14,000 and 15,000 active cards had been exposed. According to Maglan Internet Defense Technologies, a total of 31,000 credit card numbers had been exposed in all, some of them belonging to foreign nationals.

‘Anonymous’ hacker group threatens ‘reign of terror’ against Israel

Group uploads video blaming Israel for committing ‘crimes against humanity,’ and criticizes its treatment of Palestinians.*

The hacker group “Anonymous” released a video Friday threatening to begin a ‘reign of terror’ against Israel, in the latest round of cyber warfare between pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli hackers.

The video, which was posted on YouTube in the early hours of the morning, blamed Israel for committing ‘crimes against humanity,’ and criticizing it for its treatment of Palestinians.

“Through the use of media deception and political bribery, you have amassed the sympathies of many. You claim to be democratic, yet in reality this is far from the truth. In fact, your only goal is to better the lives of a select few while carelessly trampling the liberties of the masses,” says the clip’s computer-generated narrator over ominous background music.

The video also makes reference to the possibility of an Israeli strike on Iran, claiming that Israel has “taken steps to ensure a nuclear holocaust,” and that it will not be allowed “to attack a sovereign country based upon a campaign of lies.”

Moreover, the video threatens to start a crusade against Israel that will take the form of three steps, only revealing that the first of these steps will attempt to systematically remove Israel from the internet.

It must be noted that, to date, not all of the group’s threats have been carried out. Anonymous has previously threatened to attack the Knesset website, although the site did not suffer any damage. Furthermore, due to the decentralized nature of the group, previous hacking threats on sites such as Facebook were later discovered to be the result of misunderstandings between members of the group.

    Hmmm

    Is this “reign of terror” anything like the reign of terror that israel has been raining down on the Palestinian People for the last 40 years? The israeli reign of terror against Palestinians has results in tens of thousands of deaths, complete destruction of much of the infrastructure including hospitals, water supplies, schools etc. This alleged reign of terror is going on only in cyberspace and will have little real world consequence between the PR value for israel. And given israel’s propensity to lie when it comes to Palestine, there is a good chance this is just another israeli false flag operation.

    Let’s hope this is the real thing. Anonymous is stating what the world knows. The words PEACE and ISRAEL are mutually exclusive.

    Cyberspace – the new domain for ‘terrorism’ and ‘warfare’, the war of information…

    It is always easier to threaten or criticize; the real challenge is to come up with a long-term solution, as is your intention.
    I have tried and if you’re interested you can read it; it’s deliberately short.
