Israel Releases Another Gaza Pinpoint Strike Video, Anonymous Retaliates By Taking Down IDF Blog

In what is becoming an increasingly more confusing conflict - is it truly an ideological war, or merely an extended attempt to generate empathy via social networking, together with a full-blown conflict on twitter - Israel continued its pinpoint strikes in Gaza overnight, taking out the house of a high-ranking Hamas operative, together with the release of commemorative video showing the explosion moments after the event. The clip is below. What is more curious is that the global hacker group Anonymous has already picked its side, and yesterday launched a massive attack named #OpIsrael, which has so far hacked 700 Israeli websites. From RT: "The hackers reportedly took down websites ranging from high-profile governmental structures such as the Foreign Ministry to local tourism companies’ pages. The biggest attack as of now has been the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s international development program, titled Mashav. Anonymous announced on Twitter they’ve hacked into the program’s database, with the website remaining inaccessible at the moment." And most notably, Anonymous also took down the primary nexus used by Israel's to boast about its military exploits: the blog of the Israel Defense Forces, which has been down for half a day now.

While Israel has demonstrated superiority in sheer physical military strength, the reality, as the StuxNet stories over the past 2 years have shown, that the real war will be fought on line and in various mainframes. The problem is that when dealing with a massive decentralized, cloud of hacker attacks originating from everywhere in the globe, just whom will Israel retaliate against in this 21st century equivalent of guerrilla warfare?

It will be interesting to see how Mossad (Israeli Secret Service) respond's to Israeli government sites being taken down.


Not quite a missile falling in your backyard, but it is an attack on the state. 


And interestingly enough, whatever Mossad does, we won't be hearing about it.

As the Apartheid colony steers itself to oblivion, Mossad's got their hands full right now.

Anonymous may discover they are not as anonymous as they think and that payback will be physical, not electronic.

I think they learned that lesson when they went after the big credit card companies.


I don't really think "Anonymous" is so much the ideological neckbeards in mother's basement so much as it is actual politically-minded "freedom fighters" that have taken up the mantle of "anonymous."

They know what to expect;  and I think it's a beautiful thing that "anonymous' facilitiates.  It empowers your average frustrated revolutionista to action--by nothing more than the belief that they're part of some nebulous force that can be anyone, and anywhere.

Oh come on it's just another form of slacktivism.

Be careful friend, the site is feed with ominous misconceptions. Just advice & a tip of the hat. Unless you’re a part of that system, you’ll never know what is fact or fiction. Most are mentally challenged in reading daily MSM news headlines. This level requires special talents.

Apparantly, Israel is not invincible either.

Though, any hacker-org can declare being Anonymous.

Deputy Prime Minister (Shas) Eli Yishai: "We must blow Gaza back to the Middle Ages, destroying all the infrastructure including roads and water."

Seems as Eli Yishai is quite determined.

One can understand his frustration.

Hamas is lucky that Eli Yishay does not call the shots in Israel (yet).

Ha!  The only thing Apartheid Israel can do is drop bombs from 25,000 feet.  Their little chickenshit army specializes in getting destroyed the minute they set foot on enemy territory, just like 2010 and 2006 and 2000 and ...

Which explains why the Zionist baby-killers are already playing for a cease-fire behind the scenes.  The last thing their billion-dollar army without soldiers wants is a ground war against the big, bad Palestinian prison colony.

Sorry to disappoint the adrenalin pumped armageddon nuts, but this happens every couple of years over there. No, it is not the end you're hoping for.

If Anonymous is genuine, let them help spread real knowledge. Here's an excellent video that does same. It starts with the Lavon Affair and the cowardly attack on the USS Liberty to build the background and lay the groundwork for what comes next. Great quotes from JFK too. A clear pattern of Israeli  "behavior" is carefully established. A pattern that continues to this day. Enjoy! Solving 9-11 The Deception That Changed the World
