In terms of support from the international community, I think these people may be Palestine’s greatest hope!

Certainly the United States has been completely discredited as a neutral broker, and while Palestine’s Arab neighbors continue to voice their support for their fellow Muslims, their powerful words never seem to be matched with effective action!

The problem is that no country outside of Israel/Palestine really stands to profit from Palestinian independence and, contrary to the rhetoric, no government really pours out its resources for the sake of humanitarian concern.

But this is where ‘Anonymous’ comes in! ‘Anonymous’ is not a government. They are a group of ordinary people – rank and file idealists – who aren’t caught up in the power-games and aren’t controlled by big business. Moreover, because they are not a government or a country, no military force, however powerful, is able to shut them down!

Anonymous hackers unite to attack Israeli websites in solidarity with Palestine

Last week the hacking group Anonymous launched a cyber-attack campaign dubbed #OpIsrael replacing Israeli homepage messages with anti-Israel slogans and causing massive disruption to government, academic and private sites. The attach reached its peak on Sunday with high-profile government systems such as the Foreign Ministry, the Bank of Jerusalem, the Israeli Occupation Ministry, the IOF blog and the Israeli President’s official website all being hacked. Israeli finance minister Yuval Steinitz said the government was now waging war on “a second front of cyber attacks against Israel.” Haaretz newspaper also said almost 19,000 Israeli Facebook accounts had been attacked by hackers affiliated with Anonymous.

The hackers, who stand for “human rights, justice, and universal equality for the citizens of every nation”, started their #OpIsrael campaign because of a threat by Israel to sever telecommunications in and out of Gaza. Hackers from across the Middle East (Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Morocco, Palestine) and also from Indonesia, The United States, France, Spain and Britain all joined together in this campaign to show solidarity with Palestine.

A message hosted on the website Anonpaste (an alternative to Pastebin used by the hacktivist collective) explained: “The reasons for Anonymous intervention through #OpIsrael should be abundantly clear: What is happening in Palestine is oppression. They have no navy, no army, or air force. There is no war in Gaza. There is only the continuous application of military force by Israel in an attempt to push every last person out of the Palestinian state, despite international laws that make these efforts illegal.” Their video addressing the Israeli government further explains their aims and grievances.

This is potentially one of the most significant developments to come out of this latest assault on Gaza – that international group of hacktivists known as ‘Anonymous‘ have weighed into the conflict on the side of Palestine!

“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 threatened to sever all Internet and public communications into and out of Gaza, they crossed a line in the sand!”

This is not something that the state of Israel should take lightly. This year Time Magazine in American named Anonymous as one of the most influential groups of people in the world! While nuclear weapons and Apache helicopters can accomplish a lot in terms of keeping regular hostiles at bay, they can accomplish nothing against cyber-combatants! Anonymous has an amazing record of both tracking down Internet pedophiles and executing denial of service attacks against major government and corporate websites!  Apparently the attacks on Israeli government websites have already begun!
