Apparently not content to throw
Apparently not content to throw rocks and fire bullets at each other, Israelis and Palestinians have found a new battleground, so reports the NY Times.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry's Web site crashed today under a coordinated assault by thousands of supporters of Palestinians who called it up simultaneously. In Beirut last week, the Shiite Muslim militant group Hezbollah, or Party of God, said that its Web site had gone down under a similar attack by Israeli hackers. Hezbollah said its webmaster was designing counter-measures.
I have more thoughts on this, but I think they lack the necessary concision to fit snugly in here. Link forthcoming!
