Moroccan Hackers Take Over Mashkefet Website


A group of Arab computer hackers from Morocco briefly took over, Monday morning, the Website of the Mashkefet (Binoculars) hiking and touring project. The Al-Qaeda-associated hackers disabled the site and imposed a picture of an Arab with a Palestinian Authority flag and the message, "We are coming from Morocco. Israel will be burned," in Arabic, English and Hebrew.

Mashkefet has been involved in activities to help residents of southern Israel get away from the current round of attacks originating in Hamas-controlled Gaza. On Sunday, the project brought 11th and 12 graders to the Gush Etzion bloc of Judean Jewish communities, south of Jerusalem, and more tours of Judea and Samaria (Shomron) are planned in the coming days.
