Israel-Hamas war goes hi-tech08/01/2009 Written by Roberto Preatoni
As Wired reported “Israeli Defense Forces took over Hamas’ Al-Aqsa television station over the weekend — the latest blow in a increasingly-sophisticated information war over Gaza. The channel became infamous in 2007 for broadcasting a children’s show featuring “Farfour,” an anti-semitic Mickey Mouse look-a-like.
But the Israeli military considered al-Aqsa to be a serious enough propaganda threat that the station’s main studios were hit on the second day of the latest air campaign against Hamas.According to Israel’s Channel 10, the IDF hacked into Al-Aqsa Sunday, and began broadcasting an animated clip of Hamas’ leadership being gunned down. “Time is running out,” the clip warned, in Arabi. The day before, AFP reports, a “broadcast on Al-Aqsa television was interrupted with an image of a ringing phone that no one was answering.” ‘Hamas leaders are hiding and they are leaving you on the front line,’” a voice in “Hebrew-accented Arabic” said. Similar messages were sent out on Al-Aqsa radio, as well.”
But how is the Muslim world reacting from the hi-tech point of view? Guess what? Defacing and posting propaganda messages.
The interesting thing from the socio-political point of view is the support given by the Turkish crackers almost unilaterally to the Palestinians. Needless to say, Turkish are not left alone by the other fellow Muslims… here are just a few examples:
STOP THE WAR…BLAME ” ISREAL YA ALLAH (C.C) YA MUHAMMED (S.A.V.)
FOR ALLAH! FOR Hz. MUHAMMED! FOR ISLAM FUCK YOU ALL! ISRAEL & USA & DENMARK & EUROPE
To cruel Israel You are trying to take lives of our Palestinian brothers and sisters with your tanks and jets. Then you should know that we will turn those cyber lands into a hell for you.. We will chase you to make you give the account of every bullet. We will take revenge of every brother and sister killed by you. Whenever you leave alone Palestine and Palestinians we will stop stalking you. If not you will always feel our breath on your back.
Wake up and open your eyes. The great Turkish Nation will be a supporter and advocate of Palestinians and give you pain of hell sooner or later.
We guess people at EU Commission down in Brussels might be a bit busy right now…
Meanwhile the whole thing smells of déjà vu. No big implications with the Matrix this time, it’s just that we wrote a similar news back in year 2006 related to the war between Israel and Hezbollah.
Here is the video of the TV defacement going live:
