Greetings Citizens of the world, This is Anonymous. It has come to our attention that the Israeli government has ignored repeated warnings about the abuse of human rights, shutting down the internet in Israel and mistreating its own citizens and those of its neighboring countries. November 2012 will be a month to remember for the Israeli defense forces and internet security forces. Israeli Gov. this is/will turn into a cyberwar.

Al Qassam Brigade “We’ve have hit sensitive spots in Israel, places that we’ve never hit before .The M75 was one surprise that was 100% locally made… the notion that Israel has successfully destroyed our rocket bases is simply propaganda and we are more than ready to face Israeli attack. We have a video about the targeted F16. We assure you that people of Al Qassam and Ressistance are fine and what Israel reports are propaganda and lies and that the Iron Dome is no longer useful against our rockets… We resisted for 22 days in 2008. This time we can resist longer. We call for the Arab world to support us. “If Israel will continue to attack, there will be more surprises.”
