Inside Israeli Bomb Shelters

An Israeli boy walks into a bomb shelter in the southern city of Ashkelon January 4, 2009. Israeli troops and tanks split the Gaza Strip and ringed its main city on Sunday in an offensive against Hamas that has killed 500 Palestinians, including a growing number of civilians. Hamas kept up rocket attacks against southern Israel, defying efforts by the Middle East’s most powerful army to achieve Israeli leaders’ declared aim of removing the threat of cross-border salvoes.

Botnet Tool to Support Israel’s Offensive

Israel supporters respond to the cyber-attacks launched by Islamic hackers through DDoS. A group of students have developed an application that allows Israel sympathizers to use their computer resources and Internet bandwith in order to knock Palestinian websites offline.

The online group calling themselves “Help Israel Win,” is distributing a Trojan-like application that enables them to launch DDoS attacks. Installing this program onto a computer will turn it into a drone, and will place it at the disposal of the hacktivists. What differentiates this tool from regular malware is that the installation is performed voluntarily by individuals who sympathize with Israel’s efforts. …read more

With yet a long way to go until June, the wheels of the campaign for what is poised to become this summer’s blockbuster, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” have already been put into motion. After the shots we got to see a few days back, we now have the first teaser poster for the much hyped sequel, courtesy of Yahoo!.

Of course, this being a teaser poster, not much can be said on the subject, except that it’s what it is and nothing more. However, it is pretty clear that what the movie studio will be attempting with this second installment of the successful “Transformers” franchise is to play more on the dark side of the story we once knew. Judging only by the teaser and what we already got to see in other shots, the sequel will presumably be more somber than the first film, more threatening and double as explosive – literally. …read more

Palestinian Supporters Hack NATO and U.S. Army Sites

The cyberwar between hackers supporting the Palestinian cause and their Israel sympathizing counter-parts continues. After compromising thousands of Israeli websites, the Jihad attackers have moved on to targeting high profile sites that belong to the U.S. military or NATO.

Four websites belonging to the United States Army’s Military District of Washington (MDW-currently offline), have been defaced by a Turkish hacker affiliated with a group called “Peace Crew.” The attacker, who identified himself as Agd_Scorp, has posted threatening messages in English. “Stop attacks u Israel and USA! You cursed nations! One day Muslims will clean the world from you!,” the pages displayed.…read more

Open Gaza Border Now! –

In London on 2nd January people demonstrated outside the Egyptian Embassy to show their disgust at Mubarak’s role in the on-going genocide of the Palestinians in Gaza and to demand the opening of the Rafah crossing.

Evidence shows Egypt’s total complicity with Israel on the attack on Gaza. Less than 48 hours before the attack Israeli Foreign Minister Livni met with Mubarak in Cairo to co-ordinate the attack in the hope of finishing off Hamas. Mubarak has sealed the border shut and with helped Israel destroy the tunnels which were a life line to Gaza. Mubarak’s Foreign Minister Abu al-Gheit has even said he will break the bones of any Gazans attempting to escape in to Egypt.…read more

When in a tight spot, Cristiano Ronaldo invariably escapes with a burst of speed and flash of his extraordinary footballing skill.

This time, however, even the flamboyant Manchester United star would have been grateful for simply being able to walk away in one piece.

His relief at emerging unhurt from a crash which wrecked his 200mph Ferrari will have been matched by manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who must have feared the worst when he heard his £60million-valued World Player of the Year had been in such a spectacular smash. …read more
