However.... Anonymous was in the news. I just had to make the time to look into the big news of Anonymous attacking Israel. Despite reams of coverage, This hack by Anonymous seems to be much ado about nothing.
As it pretty typical of Anonymous, unless they are hacking NATO targeted nations, that is another story all together
The hack attack on Israel, as characterized by Forbes, is a picking of low fruit.
That seems about right
Anonymous’ attacks, as usual, achieve more as propaganda than in actual damage. Most of its target sites seem to have remained online, and several downed and defaced sites seemed like random low-hanging fruit: A manufacturing an export company and a real estate law firm, for instance.Check it out for yourself (A list of target sites)
This appears to be promotion of “Anonymous” as something it is not. An enemy of state.
Also a distraction, from what is obviously, wanton killing on the part of Israel.
Israel made a mistake that will cost the lives of 'innocent people on both sides.'
A mistake or a calculated risk?
I question the role of Morsi in all this? Never mind Erdogan!!!
(Nope, don't trust either tool) Anyone else?
Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said at a news conference, Saturday, with Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan there were indications a ceasefire could soon be reached in Gaza, but there were still “no guarantees.”What concessions will be made by the Palestinian leadership, with the encouragement of the wolves in sheeps clothing Morsi and Erdogan???
Erdogan is in Cairo for 4-way talks as regional parties desperately try and push Hamas and Israel towards a truce and avert an Israeli ground invasion of Gaza.
Israeli Prime Minister Banjamin Netanyahu told foreign leaders Saturday that he would agree to a ceasefire if Hamas agrees to stop rocket fire from Gaza.
Also present at the talks were Quatari Emir Haid Bin Khalifa al-Thari and several Palestinian leaders.
A senior advisor to Palestinian authority president Mahmoud Abbas praised the Egyptian efforts to broker peace while deploring the Israeli actions.
“President Abbas has consistently offered negotiations for a two state solution, but Israel has shown no interest in these negotiations. So this is the result. And the Palestinian people pay the price.” The advisor told Al-Monitor, a website specializing in Middle East coverage.
Arab League Secretary General Nabil El Araby said after the talks,”We need to start taking effective steps to push influential countries to take the issue back to the UN Security Council.”
Will the Palestinian leadership throw away Palestinian statehood to gain a ceasefire?
Interesting that the Qatari Emir is present at the meeting.
He appears to be a very special friend of Israel. What with Israel waiting to strike and strike hard until he left Gaza. Despite the Emir's really big show in Gaza
Thanks to Freethinker for this. Quite curious.
Hamas is considered a terrorist group by the United States, Israel and the European Union, while Qatar is an ally of the United States and maintains a cordial relationship with Israel. Tuesday’s visit constitutes a bold step out of line for the emir.
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said it was “quite strange” that Qatar would so visibly support its enemy, according to the Associated Press.
“By hugging Hamas publicly, the emir of Qatar has thrown peace under the bus,” he said.
If Israel really believed that Qatar had “thrown peace under the bus” Why not strike while the Emir is in Gaza? After all were supposed to believe he was cavorting with the enemy.
Israeli television said military actions were put on hold until Qatar's Sheikh Hama bin Khalifa al-Thani had left.
Something is just not sitting right here..........
