Gaza Hackers Take Over Rabbinate Website

A group calling itself the Gaza Hacker Team took over the Internet site of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel Sunday evening. They colored the home page black and added pictures of Palestinian Authority prisoners in Israeli jails.

A "message to the Jews" read, "Your safety is tied to the safety of the Palestinian prisoners who have started a hunger strike. Israel must respond to the demands of the prisoners soon." The hackers threatened, "Expect Palestinian missiles in case anyone among the Palestinian prisoners gets into serious condition. On the back page is written, "The war continues to the beloved land of Palestine."
