'Palestinians' hack Israeli television
It has been a totally crazy week work-wise (hence the light posting), and it's only going to get worse - I'm flying early tomorrow morning to the US for about a week and a half. Multiple destinations....
I still Tweet more often than I post....
Suspected 'Palestinian' hackers hacked into Israel's Channel 2 on Friday night. (The link goes to the video - I didn't post the video because it would play automatically and I did not see a way to disable that).
During the airing of a popular television show "Big Brother" on Channel 2, the broadcast was briefly interrupted by a clip showing images of terror attacks and threatening messages in Hebrew.The move to shut down inciting media is long overdue.
"Stay in your homes," begins the ominous text. "The story is not over...there is more to come."
At the bottom of the message reads in Arabic: "Al-Quds Intifada."
Al-Quds intifada refers to the rash of terrorist violence Israel has experience for some six months, seeing nearly 30 Israelis killed and dozens more injured.
Earlier in the day, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) together with the IDF and Israel Police shut down an Islamic Jihad media channel in Ramallah, according to security forces.
The move comes one day after the security-diplomatic cabinet approved a decision to close Palestinian media outlets that incite to terrorism against Israelis. The decision was taken following a spate of Palestinian knife and firearm attacks around the country in recent days.
The Falastin Al-Yom outlet is a television broadcast station, which also uses social media networks to send out its content.
The channel's manager, 34-year-old Faruk Aliat, from Bir Zeit, an Islamic Jihad operative who has been in an Israeli prison in the past, was arrested during the raid.
