Anonymous take on Israel digitally, in retaliation for Attacks on Gaza.

Posted by   + Show Post


Anonymous Destroys Israel By Taking Down Hundreds of Websites and Leaking Emails and Passwords

It looks like Anonymous followed up with its threat of digitally attacking Israel for taking military action in the Gaza strip. They've knocked down websites, deleted databases and have leaked e-mail addresses and passwords. It's a whopping takedown.

The targets taken down include the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs database and Bank of Jerusalem database, which have both been deleted. On top of that, Anon also took down over 600 sites with DDoS attacks and pasted over 2000 email addresses and passwords. Pretty rough.
dude


Here's a statement from Anonymous explaining why they attacked Israel:

Greetings World

For far too long, Anonymous has stood by with the rest of the world and watched in despair the barbaric, brutal and despicable treatment of the Palestinian people in the so called "Occupied Territories" by the Israel Defense Force. Like so many around the globe, we have felt helpless in the face of such implacable evil. And today's insane attack and threatened invasion of Gaza was more of the same.

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. As the former dictator of Egypt Mubarack learned the hard way – we are ANONYMOUS and NO ONE shuts down the Internet on our watch. To the IDF and government of Israel we issue you this warning only once. Do NOT shut down the Internet into the "Occupied Territories", and cease and desist from your terror upon the innocent people of Palestine or you will know the full and unbridled wrath of Anonymous. And like all the other evil governments that have faced our rage, you will NOT survive it unscathed.

To the people of Gaza and the "Occupied Territories", know that Anonymous stands with you in this fight. We will do everything in our power to hinder the evil forces of the IDF arrayed against you. We will use all our resources to make certain you stay connected to the Internet and remain able to transmit your experiences to the world. As a start, we have put together the Anonymous Gaza Care Package – http://bit.ly/XH87C5 – which contains instructions in Arabic and English that can aid you in the event the Israel government makes good on it's threat to attempt to sever your Internet connection. It also contains useful information on evading IDF surveillance, and some basic first aid and other useful information. We will continue to expand and improve this document in the coming days, and we will transmit it to you by every means at our disposal. We encourage you to download this package, and to share it with your fellow Palestinians to the best of your ability.

We will be with you. No matter how dark it may seem, no matter how alone and abandoned you may feel – know that tens of thousands of us in Anonymous are with you and working tirelessly around the clock to bring you every aid and assistance that we can.

We Are Anonymous
We Are Everywhere
We Are Legion
We Do Not Forgive
We Do Not Forget

To the oppressors of the innocent Palestinian people, it is too late to EXPECT US

They are using tactics that aren't blowing people to bits. How is this not preferable? Or is it because it's against Israel?

It could be against any one, or any country, rather.  What did they hope to accomplish?  Lets hope they don't decide to pull that on our own country.  I just can't get behind this 'group'.

I still remember seeing these people literally dancing in the streets upon the news of 9/11. Holding up pictures of Bin Laden. Which was a repeat of when 241 Marines died in Lebanon. Same thing back then. I remember.

I know they have done a few things here in the states. Mainly take down the VISA and Paypal websites. I think they also hacked into some kind of government computer. Might have been the FBI.

Well, prior to 9/11, what did the US do in that particular area of the world? Besides proping up Israel. What did the US empire do to those people to actually cause them to celebrate a terrorist attack on our shores? What do you think happened for people to take delight in that kind of barbarism? What could possibly have been perpetrated against them that they would react that way?

I am Irish as well.  I do not support anyone who's goal is the total annihilation of another group of people.

Quoting mehamil1:

Ah well I by nature support the underdog. In this case oppressed people. I'm Irish. I feel affinity with those who suffer at the hands of imperialist assholes. I get along great with people from India.

Rather telling of some people, isn't it?

He works on their defense systems computers.  Just got back 2 months ago from there.

Quoting Mommy_of_Riley:

Why is that?

Quoting Carpy:

Which is why my nieces husband is on a plane for Israel now.
